This question has been on my mind a bit lately. Especially since my friend, Lyn is about to have her first book published in 2015. I’ve been wondering how many people will read, rate and review the book, and what will draw them to pick it up in the first place.
So what makes you pick up a book to read? Do you always read from the same genre? Always go back to the same authors? Do you wait for recommendations from trusted friends? Or do you read what is popular on GoodReads? Or maybe you pick your books off the shelf at random?
For me, at the moment, I’m reading from an extensive pile of review copies I’ve been sent. Which is odd, because I’m usually pretty picky about what I read. Now days I’m reading whatever lands in my lap, which is awesome because I’ve found some hidden gems I wouldn’t have known existed otherwise.
How do you decide to read a book?
