BOOK BLOGGER HOP #6

Already it is that time of week again. The week goes by so fast and the weekend even faster...

This week’s Book Blogger Hop question comes from Sue who blogs at Cookie’s Book Club hosted by Crazy-for-Books is:

“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?"

Hmm, that’s hard to put my finger…a bit like figuring out what publishers are looking for from writers…I’m normally a very dedicated reader – even if something is a little hard to get into I will keep reading it. A sense of mystery or suspense, a really warm writing style and stand out characters certainly help though! I did however read a book a while back, which had so many typos and spelling mistakes that it was really off-putting and I put it down after three pages. Perhaps I like a well edited book…?!

How about you?

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!

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!

Just dropping by for the blog hop. Typos can seriously destroy my enjoyment of a book. Especially if it happens repeatedly. You would think they would get rid of those prior to printing!

Hopping through. I'm pretty generous with my books too. I agree that a warm writing style really keeps you reading.
