This week we are talking about the worst reasons we have ever purchased or read a book.


Yea buying books is a problem for lots of us. I have all kinds of reasons for wanting to read a book most are for good reasons, some are just dumb.

Holy crap! I just realized this is another opportunity for a list. I have done one in a while (j/k, i did one three days ago). I have a plethora of reasons. Some are obvious traps, some are just dumb on my part.

the cover was so pretty

tumblr_n11rd7YdUe1qizfbso2_500I have fallen for this so many times. I am a bit of a cover whore.

i wanted to prove a review wrong

eminem_quote-1233this usually is because of pretty cover, but low ratings. i should know better

i needed to make one more purchase to get free shipping/a bigger discount

Dumb-Chelsea-Handlerpretty dumb! apparently.

i thought i remember it mentioned somewhere, by someone

tumblr_m61sb2szcZ1r6lkwrshould’ve paid closer attention, they hated the book

it was on sale or free

7377799/10 there is a reason it is so cheap

i am going to want to read this eventually

tumblr_m41qmao9fa1qjwfxmthat’s me looking at books i want to OWN and maybe, someday, read

That’s all I can think of for now.

I would love to hear about the worst reasons you have ever read or purchased a book.
