I was just wondering if anyone here is into reading series/serialized novels. I'm kind of torn between reading them and giving them a pass. On the one hand I think the author should say what needs to be said at the maximum in a trilogy. I don't want to feel like I have to read/purchase 10 books just to finish the story. Not a value judgement, just my preference. But then some seem so compelling that I'm thinking about sticking with them. It's recently the way i feel about S.M. Stirling and his books about the change.
