Question – What Tends To Be The Deciding Factor When Choosing Your Next Great Read?
My eReader is a Kobo so naturally, I ‘like’ Kobo on Facebook. They have a #QuestionOfTheDay feature. Last week, this was their question and I was very impressed with it:
What tends to be the deciding factor when choosing your next great read?
Great question, eh? I liked it so much, I decided to pass it along to you and see what you have to say.
For me, since I am a blogger, I follow a reading schedule. I have release dates for books I want to read, or books that my readers would like me to review, and follow that schedule when picking my next book. If I am, by some miracle, ahead of my reading schedule, I let myself pick a book that is not in my planner. How do I decide which book to read then? I go mostly by my mood. I have a shelf in my book closet that holds books I really want to read but have yet to find the time to do so. If I can pick a ‘non-scheduled’ book to read next, I will open my book closet and see if any of those titles jump out at me. Also, sometimes I will pick up a book that some of my friends have been telling me is a ‘must read’ if, again, I am in the mood to read it.
So that’s me. What about you? What tends to be the deciding factor when choosing your next great read?
