Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.
THIS WEEK IS:If you’re in the bookstore looking for a new book to read, which of these would play the biggest role in whether or not you purchase a book: Cover, Description, Author.
I guess the description. I mean yes, there are definitely a handful of auto-buy authors out there for me, but in terms of finding new books and series and such it is usually the description that plays a big role. I always check that out, I can’t just look at a cover and be like oh that’s pretty and then buy it—even though yeah that sometimes is what get’s me to pick up the book and read the description.
Also, not an option but for me reviews are really important, especially if it’s a book I’ve heard nothing about. Even at a store I’ll pull up Goodreads on my phone and just look at the general star rating and maybe skim some reviews.
