Page numbers don't really effect whether I read a book or not. I like when they aren't too long though because then I can move onto the next one!Here's my Book Blogger HopHave a GREAT day!Old Follower :)
Great comment...that is true about moving on to the next book. :)Thanks for commenting, Jessica.
Great question this week! :)
Thanks, Erica, and thanks for commenting.
Page count doesn't bother me, but I may put off starting a longer one if I have some I need to finish quickly to hit a review date. I'll do those first and then come back to it.
Yes...that is what keeps me from picking up a long book. I have review dates to meet. :)Thanks for commenting, Nicki.
I usually don't pay attention to the page numbers since I pick up a book based on the story being told.Here’s my Book Blogger Hop!Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog
Thank you for your thoughts on this. So true, but big books still intimidate me even with a terrific story. :)Thanks for commenting, Ronyell.
I sometimes put off reading books over 600 pages, depending on the type of book, because I know it will take me a little longer to read. I've read quite a few though that have pulled me in so completely that I am finished with them before I know it. Have a great week, Elizabeth!
That does happen...love it when you are done before you know it.Thanks for commenting, Literary Feline.
This is a really good question, Elizabeth.I've got to be honest and say, like you, books with this many pages does tend to put me off, 200-300 is my average. I have read longer books that have had too many lulls to keep my interest. That’s not to say I wouldn’t ever read longer again because there are at least half a dozen books on my Goodreads 5 star rating shelf that are over 400 pages long.I think it helps if there’s enough going on in the plot to keep me engaged, for example, Blade of Darkness by Dianne Duvall was 541 pages long and I absolutely loved it and devoured every page! The same with Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia which is a whopping 735 pages long.
Thanks for your terrific comment.My average is 300-350 pages.I do read over 400 at times, but not very often.The characters keep me going in a book.Thanks for commenting, Flora. Lovely that you stopped by. :)
