What draws you to a book?

I have  to admit when I browse in the book store the covers are what draw me to a book first.  If I like the cover I check out the title and then I read the summary and sometimes the reviews if there are any.  Outside of the book store I have authors I enjoy and I check for new releases from them, besides those I follow book blogs and reviews from sites like book page, and my local library.  I have to admit my process is not fail proof there are books I pick that I can’t get through at all and then there are those I slog through hoping they will get better because I have heard good things about the book.  In truth some of them improve and some of them don’t.  Anybody else want to share how they choose the books they read?

  1. I think I chose my books in a very similar way! Sometimes it works out, other, not so much. But it is always exciting!

  2. I choose my books in many ways, but honestly, if the cover is intriguing, I’m going to pick it up. I may not love it, but cover and interesting title do draw my attention a lot of the time!

    Thank you for joining the Spread the Love Linky Party! I’m glad you did, since now I know you’re blog! 🙂
