It's that time of the week for a little bloggy blog lovin' with...
Hosted by Jen
Every week there's a new question, and it's a great way to get to meet new bloggers!
“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 really think, for me, what keeps me reading, is different every time. Really it just used to be my neurotic behavior that dictated I finish EVERY book I started...I then one day realized how stupid that was to force myself. So know I think I just have to feel it. The characters, the setting, the voice, the flow...all of it.
The one sure way to make me put it back on the shelf, and submit to defeat, is when the writer just gives me way too much description. I mean don't get me wrong I love a good mental picture as much as the next person, but that is what my imagination is for. Otherwise I would have just stuck to watching a movie. Having to read through all the little, mundane details bores me and takes the fun out of imagining things for myself. And after all isn't that what reading is all about...imagination?!
