“…there’s no way you can read, see and experience all the things that are available to be experienced. The two methods for dealing with it are culling (i.e., cutting out certain genres that don’t interest you, etc.) or surrender (i.e., just making peace with the facts and enjoying what you can in the time that you have).
So, do you cull, or do you surrender? Or do you do both?“
I most definitely ‘cull’. There are so many books out there from my favourite genres and my favourite authors that I want to read. If I read books that I am not sure I would like or am almost certain to dislike (i.e. books like the Twilight series), I would never get to read all of the books that I do want to read. So, I mostly stick to what I know.
