Follow Friday


Define what characteristics your favorite books share:
My favorite nonfiction books introduce me to new concepts or events. My favorite fiction titles must include strong characters, imagination, and good writing. Poor grammar holds the top spot on my list of unforgiveable book peeves.

  9. Horrible grammar in books make me shudder and glare at the pages with disdain. I know that not everyone can be perfect, but I expect my finished purchased books to be near perfect, especially if the book was published from a major publishing house. I'm a bit more forgiving with indie and self-published books, though not by much.

    PS. Returning the follow :)

  11. Great answer there. Imagination definitely plays a great part in why I pick up a book. Good characters, a strong plot, and (yes please!) good grammar and prose is what makes me stay for the ride.
