I'm a new follower, I'm over 13, my name is J.F. and also, you asked the question:
Would you want the ability to read other's minds?

I think I would, but it'd be hard to learn how to control it because sometimes you DON"T want to know what everyone is thinking so you have to have a method for controling and blocking things out. But ultimatly? I would like to have it.

~The Book Pixie said...

No, I wouldn't want the ability to read people's minds. While at first it seems like it'd be useful, sometimes knowing stuff you shouldn't can often put you in really sticky situations. XD

Sorry I forgot to answer it above. Whoops! XD

Heeh, this series is awesome or so I hear! XD
Thanks for this opportunity!

As for the question: I don't think I would want to be able to hear what everyone thinks! To read their minds. I am too sensitive and I know that I would eventually, definitely read something I would take the wrong way and it would hurt me.
There's fleeting "bad" thoughts crossing our mind every second and sometimes they are about the people we love and we don't mean nothing about it, it's just venting, but...

thanks for the giveaway. I've been wanting to read these books for a little while now :) I want to say YES, I would love to be able to read minds. But, once I really think about it, I would have to say NO. It sounds fascinating, to be able to hear others thoughts, but some things are private and I don't think I would be able to handle peoples thoughts about me. Honestly, you have a million thoughts run through your head a day, and not all of them are nice, and some are really mundane and boring

While it would be nice I think it is better to not be able to. I would say no.

I added the blog to my Google Reader about a week ago so I don't know if I count as old. I assume old meaning not hearing about it through a link.

No links posted because I don't have any kind of social network/blog.

Fear Street said...

Would I want the ability to read other's minds? Occasionally, it would come in handy. Like if I wanted to know if that shifty teen that works at McDonald's spit in my burger or not. But I would have to say NO to the question. Because sometimes it's just better not to know.

No I wouldn't want to be able to read others minds. I think it would be too overwhelming. And it's probably better to just not know some of the time.

As a teacher it would sure make my work a heck of a lot easier if I could read other people's minds! But I would want to be able to turn it on and off! : )

I think the power to read minds would be awesome if you could turn it on and off. Sometimes there are just things you don't want to know/hear. And I would go crazy if my brain was filled the people's chatter all of the time.

Thanks for the chance to win!

I'm not sure I would like to know what people think. Sometimes it would be helpful when making decisions on where to eat or what to do, but other than that I just don't want to know.

I haven't read this series yet, so thanks so much for doing this contest!
As much as I would want to read someone's mind at times, I wouldn't want to ability to do it. I believe that we aren't given the ability to read a person's mind for a reason and should keep it that way.

It seems like the ability to read minds could only lead to misery, I would say no. Even if there was the ability to turn it off at will, it seems like I would just want to be nosey for no good reason. :P

I would love to have that ability! I'm pretty sure that with lots of practice and learning to stay away from the places full of bad people, that ability would be more beneficial than not. :)

Kristina Barnes♥ said...

Oh my god, yes. I've wanted the ability to read other peoples' minds since I was a little kid. Honest. I was never a social butterfly - I'm actually a social phobic. So whenever I'm out with someone I've wondered what they think during our agonizing awkward silences, or what my friends think of me (truly think), or if the guys I like even notice I exist. I'm sure I'd suffer a lot of heartache, but I'd have the honest-to-goodness truth in front of me. I would have been able to leave my cheating ex sooner. I could have had the balls to ask this guy who pined over me for six years (which I somehow didn't notice) to go out with me. I could read the minds of the people I people watch. I think it'd be great!

I would love to have that ability. Ever since I was a kid, I've wanted that and am jealous when characters on TV can do it.
