Step 2: Go to goodreads and check how many pages it is.

Step 3: Start reading reviews. NO. Start reading ‘negative’ reviews.

Et voila!

Anyone else facing the same problem?

  1. I hit these blips sometimes – but then I take into consideration that not all readers have the same taste. Read between the lines. Besides, if a book is not engaging, I move on.

    1. This is wisdom and timely advice. I moved on yesterday after reading 200 pages of a classic and decided to read a non fiction instead. Iโ€™m 50% done and loving it!

  2. Ha! That can surely be a problem. I tend to read books where I’ve gotten a recommendation from more than one source. Then I am pretty sure it might resonate with me. But that said, I typically have 3-4 books going at once and it can take me a little longer to finish. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. I’m just finished a book called Stuffocation by James Wallman. Right now on my nightstand are Liane Moriarty’s “The Husband’s Secret”, along with Tom Sterner’s “Fully Engaged” and Angela Duckworth’s “Grit.” There always has to be at least one fiction book in there, for just before I go to sleep, but sometimes Liane Moriarty’s work pulls me in too deeply that I stay up late reading it! ๐Ÿ˜‰
