Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

RULES:

Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.

1. Post about the Hop on your blog (feel free to grab the logo at the top of the post!)
Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier!
In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!).
This week’s question comes from Sue who blogs at Cookie’s Book Club ! Thanks for submitting a question for our Hoppers, Sue! Be sure to visit her blog and tell her thank you!

“What 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 it part of a series and I really liked the first book or if the book grabs me with a good storyline or mystery plot within the first
few chapters.



Also check out my book giveaway going on here!!

Hey,

Found you on the hop. I agree, a story has to have a good plot or mystery in the first few chapters to keep me really interested.

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 http://www.howardsherman.net 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!

Hopping through. I love books that grab you right away. It's not a requirement, but it always helps.

Hopping by to visit and follow! Yes, got to have that compelling storyline in the first few chapters, or it's time to find another read. :-)
