Musing Mondays is a meme hosted by Should be Reading and it asks you to muse about something bookish each week. Join in the fun with all fellow bookworms !
You walk into a bookshop ……..
Lets assume for the sake of this post that you have no specific book in mind when you go into the bookstore. Actually, that is always the case with me. On the vary rare occasion that I drop by a bookstore I try to buy something that is not on my online TBR just to mix it up a little. Thats how I ended up buying Nazis and the Occult (Goodreads link) purely based on the blurb. My parents thought (or still think) I am a bit off.
But I digress…..
So you are in the bookstore and my question is this – what helps you decide which book to buy ?
Is the blurb alone enough to make you pick up a book that is quite under the radar ? Or does the book have to hold a formidable reputation of awards and critical praise ?Or do you take time to read a few pages before taking the call ?
Please leave your answer in the comments and also the link to your own musing ! 🙂
