Do you read books out of order?
I have a serious OCD, I can not read books out of order, I don’t care if you can read it alone or as a series I can not read it unless I read the first one first. I can’t watch movies out of order and I CANNOT read books out of order.
It recently just happened to me, I didn’t know a book I requested from Netgalley was part of a series, it was not listed as a series, no numbers or name of the series in parenthesis, nothing! So I assume the book is a stand alone only to find out that the book is the second in the series but why wouldn’t you put a number on it? Even if you consider it a book that can be read on it’s own don’t you think its up to the person reading the book to determine that, especially if they are a crazy OCD number person like me? I also have issues with books that have way to many prequels to the point that you have no idea what book to start with first. There is a series that I am dying to read and the only reason I am not reading it is because there is no number 1 it can be read however but I just can’t I need to read the first one first. It’s very frustrating but I can’t explain how uncomfortable it is to read a book I know isn’t the first one. It’s like I develop a panic attack. I know you all think I’m nuts but this is just how I am lol I have serious OCD issue with number order 🙂
Some people don’t care about reading out of order but I wont even touch the book if I haven’t read the first one.
Are you ODC about the order of your books?
