Book blog hop

I’m writing this weeks blog hop from my I-pod so I apologise for any mistakes it’s a bit more difficult

This weeks question is about what makes us keep reading a book and what makes us give a book up. I answered this a bit in my very waffley post earlier this week. So long as I am interested by the premise I won’t let myself give up before 100 pages have gone because I think that gives enough chance for the book to get going in most cases. If I am really struggling at that point I will give up but if I have even just an inkling of interest I will generally continue.

Thanks for hopping by

  1. I keep going for 50-100 pages and then make a decision. Can’t stop earlier because they do get good later on in some cases.

  5. 100 pages is a good rule. I usually find that by the time I’ve invested in 100 pages I usually need to see where the story goes, even if I’m not liking it. Damn curiosity!

    lol I usually find that too, unless I’ve found nothing I like in the book, I rarely give up
