This or That? #61

In case anyone needs a reminder or is new to the Bookmark Chronicles, here are the rules: Every Monday I will post a This or That Challenge where we will choose between two characters or scenarios. On Friday we will see which scenario/character wins. Feel free to either comment your choice below or make your own post and link it back here! :)

By no means do you have to feel obligated to do every single challenge, but I would love to hear all of your opinions! If you can only really talk about one scenario then go for it. Also, if you have any suggestions or would like to write a guest post about any of the This or That? topics let me know!


This week I want to know…

How often do you read the description of a book before you read it?

I’m feeling generous today so you have five options:

Always – Almost Always – Sometimes – Almost Never – Never


I fall in to the Almost Never category. I only read covers when I haven’t heard of a book at all, but the title or cover is interesting. I’ve created my entire TBR for 2017 and all of the books are either really popular or recommended by friends. I don’t plan on reading the descriptions. I’d rather just start reading and see what happens.

What about you? Have you ever jumped into a book without knowing anything about it? Let me know!

    Almost always. I’d say always, but if it’s an author I like, sometimes I just dive right in – although I’ll sometimes wonder what I’m reading and go to the back anyway.

  2. Always. A book description is how I determine whether a book is good enough to read or just another cliche-ridden plot line.

    Almost Always. I usually do read the blurb before I read the book. However, this also can be classified as Sometimes, because (especially with NetGalley) I’ll click on the book and read the blurb, but then won’t get to it for a while. Then, when I finally get around to it, I don’t read the blurb before I actually start reading it.

    I don’t know how I missed this post!! I hope I’m not missing notifications for some posts.

    On-Topic: I’m going to have to say “sometimes.” I read descriptions on Amazon that lead me to add/not add books to my Wishlist, but I also select books based on their inclusion in the Western Canon & I don’t really read the descriptions for those.
