The the Book Blogger Hop is weekly event hosted by Crazy for Books that helps bloggers and readers connect with fellow book lovers!
This week’s question is:
“What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?“
I try to make an honest effort to finish all the books I start, but bad characterization, bad dialogue and bad grammar are my biggest reasons for not continuing on with a book. I do download a lot of Kindle samples that I never buy the books for, but in regards to books I’ve purchased in 2011, so far there’s only been one that I just couldn’t make myself finish…so I think that’s pretty good.
What about you? What causes you to abandon certain books over others?
