Anyhow, I found one that I've read several reviews and comments about on Goodreads.com. I saw a copy of hush, hush. I considered downloading it to the Kindle a couple of times but I'm currently reading three other books on it [and a smut read short story, yesterday; actually when I think about it probably falls closer to the category of readable porn -- but I trudge through it because I'd paid my $1.50 or so, LOL].
Considering the cost to download it was only a dollar or two cheaper than purchasing the hard copy, I chose to spend the money on the hard copy in this case.
So, why did I choose it? By the cover? Because of the reviews? Because of the excerpt about the book? Because someone suggested I might read it? Well, yes. But, when I'm looking through the shelves of the library or the bookstore I have another method that always proves successful for me.
When I come across a cover or title that looks interesting I pick up the book and flip to somewhere in the middle and I read a paragraph or two, or the whole page. If the action there catches my attention, I might do another flip somewhere else and read a few more lines. I did this with hush, hush and found myself sold after one paragraph.
So, how do you choose a good read? And, do you read multiple genres? Or, do you stick with pretty much one genre?
Personally, I'm not for mystery and crime solving. But, if you throw a little romance in there then I'm more game. All these rules apply, of course, to fiction. I read multiple genres of Non-Fiction books.
Well, it be beautiful and sunny outside so I'm going to tend to a couple of chores, help Lil'Gal with her paper
Oh, if you haven't already checked it out? Lis has a blog up for her first e-book, Precipice. She has a video trailer for it which gives a fantastic sneak peak into the characters and story line. So, go check it out!
I guarantee after having done so, you'll be downloading a copy of it for yourself! ;-)
