Hello guys, I have a question for all of you today. How much of a book will you read before deciding if it's worth your time? Basically, how many pages or chapters or percentage of a book will you read before making the judgement of whether it is a good book or not? Obviously, some books start slow, as they need to ease you into the situation. They also need to introduce the characters and whatnot. Because of this, I will usually read about 30 pages of a book before making that judgement. I think this is a fair number because most books are over 200 pages so you really aren't reading that much. That being said, there are some books that I give up before I really start them, and that is mainly if I can tell from the first few pages that it just isn't my kind of book(not to say that it isn't good, it just isn't for me). There were a few books in school that when I began I had the initial assumption that the books were bad(you know, school books and whatnot), and the beginnings made me think the same thing. However, after reading a bit into it I found that I quite enjoyed the book. Two examples of this are "The Catcher in the Rye" and "The Stranger(otherwise known as "The Outsider")". I didn't like the beginning of either of them but when I got into it(especially for "The Catcher in the Rye"), I started to really enjoy them. So... how much will you read?
