Book Blogger Hop 7/1/2011

Book Blogger HopWhat 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 think what keeps me reading is if I want to find out more, if I like the characters and if I like how the writing flows.  I'll put one down if it's too wordy and I can't get into to the plot.



  1. I don't know why I keep reading a book. It's not the story. It's not the characters. I really don't know!

    I'm hopping by to tell you that I've got a wonderful giveaway going on at my blog, Readerbuzz. It's international! During the Readerbuzz July Giveaway I'll be giving away a $25 Amazon gift card! I'd love to have you stop in and throw your name in the hat to win!

  2. I agree, I don't like beginnings to be too wordy so that I can't get into the plots. I also don't like overly descriptive openings.

    (be sure to check out my giveaway!)

  3. These book blogger hop questions just get better and better. This one looks easy but I think it’s a trick question. We all know it’s the same answer – the writing – but we all have different perspectives of what good writing is.

    Hop on over to my blog at and read my three-prong answer as I explain why I’ll decide to pick up a book or put it down in under sixty seconds.

    Happy July 4th Weekend!

  4. A good writing is basic! It need to be me interested and curious, especially about the characters!

    Happy weekend!

  5. Stopping by via Crazy-For-Book's Blog Hop. I'm following your blog.
