Writer Wednesday - I Want To Know...

What makes you decide to buy a book?

Is it...

  • the cover
  • the blurb
  • a review
  • the author's reputation
  • a few pages you read inside
  • something else entirely

Please leave a comment and let me know why you buy the books you do.

  1. I am typically drawn to a book because of the subject manner (and then it's the cover- I know...I shouldn't judge a book by its cover, yet I still do...) But in the end, I will buy a book based on reviews, and not the good ones, I read the bad reviews and determine if the reasons the reviewer didn't like the book are good enough reasons for me not to buy it and try it out. Most of the time, the reviewer's reasons for disliking the book are not issues for me or are things I enjoy in books, and therefore, I am even more drawn to wanting to read it. (This also reminds me how subjective reviews are...one's person dislike might be my like!)
