Today’s question:
A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
 Patricia asks a particularly insightful question:
Ever read a book you thought you could have written better yourself?

My response:
This is a toughie.   Since I don’t feel I have the smallest amount of talent of writing, maybe  a children’s book, but definitely not a novel, my answer is no.  However with that being said, I have read some books, that I have had those exact sediments but in a  jokingly comparison.  I have also read books and thought that my life/biography compared to the story line, would have made a more interesting  topic and/or plot.

What about you?  Have you read books that you could have written better?

  1. I have read some that I wondered where the editor was, but rewrite the story No.

  2. Most of the changes I’d make to books are spelling errors or using the wrong word, like seen instead of saw etc. Those types of things drive me crazy.
    Here’s My BTT

  3. I feel the same way. I can’t even come up with an idea, let alone write a book!

  4. No, I couldn’t. But, I might have been a better editor than some of those books have had.
