One of the blogs I like to visit is Nathan Bransford's. He is a literary agent with Curtis Brown in San Francisco. He often asks interesting questions that get you thinking. One he asked recently is one I'd like to ask as well.
When do you stop reading a book?
Do you read the first couple of chapters; do you try to make it halfway through; or do you read the entire book then toss it aside in disgust for having done so?
I have a friend who won't even start a book if the first paragraph doesn't capture her attention. A high school English teacher of mine used to say, "Never finish a book merely because you have begun it." What do you think?
And what would make you keep turning the pages??
