Booking Through Thursday


If you’re anything like me, one of your favorite reasons to read is for the story. Not for the character development and interaction. Not because of the descriptive, emotive powers of the writer. Not because of deep, literary meaning hidden beneath layers of metaphor. (Even though those are all good things.) No … it’s because you want to know what happens next?

Or, um, is it just me?

My Answer:

Yes, that would be my ultimate reason for reading a book - the story. Sure, I have some authors on auto-buy, but if there's a good story regardless of who wrote it, I'll read it. Some of my favorite authors didn't have stories I particularly liked and it wasn't enough to hold my interest. A particular author may get me to buy a book, but keeping me interested is all about a good, storyline.


  1. Yes, it's the story that grabs you. But if the story is good, then usually the characters are good, or at least good to the story line.
