This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know:
How often do you read the description of a book before you read it?
I’m feeling generous today so you have five options:
Always – Almost Always – Sometimes – Almost Never – Never
I would have to go with almost always. It does depend for me though, if it’s a series I’ve been interested or an author that I love, I will hardly every read the descriptions of a book before I’ve read it. In fact, I probably read it afterwards to see if it matches the descriptions. If you can’t describe something simply, you don’t understand it.
The only time I will really read a description is if I’ve never read a book by the author, or have never read the series before. The reason I said almost always is because I always ask for books that I know I want for presents, for Birthday, Christmas etc. So I usually am reading a description because I’m in a bookstore seeing what the book, which I know nothing about, what it may be about…Or even if the book is on sale, does it look interesting?
