Do chunky books discourage you from reading?
Looking back at my September list, I realized I didn't read that many books again this month. Although, I don't feel like I read any less. If I don't finish another book, I would have only read 5! I normally read about 8-10 books a month. However, two of the books this month were chunksters. The Tea Rose was 592 pages, and The Diviners is 608 pages. Often times, I don't read thick books because I feel like I need to get reviews written. I don't consider myself a fast reader. I would really like to change this, because I know I'm missing out on some great books. I'm really happy that I finally read The Tea Rose, despite it's size. I couldn't ignore The Diviners because I love Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle series. Do you ever not pick up a book because of its size? If I'm reading a book too long, I feel stressed to finish it.
Does the size of a book ever discourage you from reading it?
I might start including page count in my monthly list. This might give me a better understanding of how much I read.
