Daily Prompt: Reading Material
How do you pick what blogs or books to read? What’s the one thing that will get you to pick up a book or click on a link every single time?
Skipping and jumping with abandoned glee
Devouring blogs which take my fancy
I don’t know how my sixth sense or to say it accurately my book sense and blog sense developed. I gradually acquired this ability in both the cases.
Books I started reading them, very early in my childhood. As I grew up my reading choices also changed. I liked mysteries and horror stories. Probably must have been a little fiend myself. I loved autobiographies. I read all the great classics.
Those days are over now. I only read light fiction now. I keep at quite a distance from murder mysteries or sad ones. I cry buckets of tears at sad movies and books.
I look at the back cover of a book. See what is written and if it appeals to me, I take it. If it doesn’t, though I may have heard tons of praises about it, I don’t read it.
The same thing goes for a blog. Normally I like light, entertaining and humorous stuff. I am new to the blogging world. Gradually I am developing a discerning eye. There are great bloggers around me. Somedays I wish the day stretches so that I enjoy what others have written. There are great finds. My wish is for spare time to visit the blogs I like.
