Why we buy Books: A Poll

I’m really interested in what makes you decide to take the leap from picking up a book/checking out a book online, to actually handing over your hard-earned cash. It may be that you fall in love with a book cover, or you know (and like) the author and their previous works. Hell, you may be a sucker for the blurb. Whatever it is, let me know!

I’m hoping to get a lot of feedback on this post which will allow me to look at the answers given and write a further post about it. It will also allow me to get to know you all a little bit better.

Here is the poll. If you buy a book for a different reason, please let me know and I’ll add it to my answers.

  1. I don’t believe the blurbs anymore. Some of them are downright misleading.
    Even if i like a book based on blurb, i will check out the reviews first 😀 Unless it’s an author i know and like.

    1. That’s so true! Sometimes the blurb details like the last 50 pages and the rest is just build up. I hate that!
