And, do you keep reading anyway?
I have been a lover for book series regardless of a genre. This seems to be my weakness since I cannot tell myself to stop reading a book in spite the fact that it's going downhill. I always have that urge of wanting to know what will happen next was the story, the characters, etc.
I started this habit when I picked up a book from the Scarpetta series of Cornwell. Then it was followed by the Dismas Hardy series of Lescroart. Both series has it's highights and some books may not be as great as the previous but still has enough pull to keep me interested.
Then I got to learn about the Anita Blake series of Hamilton. That was a roller coaster ride by itself. Since the series includes 19 books, it is quite a read. Hamilton certainly had her downhill with the series, and a lot of people didn't quite enjoy the twist that she injected into it, but inspite the fact I still read the series thinking that it can reach it's peak again. Well let's see.
I just don't abandon a series. If I started it, I need to finish it until the last book. Maybe I should stop reading series, but where's the fun in that right??
