I have been reading for longer than I can remember. I will read anything...books, papers, shampoo bottles...do you know how much information is actually on the plastic around new toilet paper? Oy!
At any rate, there was a time when I would just pick something up and read. I think we've all been there. I know a few people who still are. They will literally read whatever they pick up first. I have become much more selective. Perhaps it is maturity...hmmm...naaah! I think it is acquired taste.
I can't really pinpoint what makes me pick something, mostly if it sounds interesting. My question to you is, what makes you pick certain books? What are the criteria for selecting the next book that will take up hours of your life? Is it interest? Price?
I'd really like to know.
