Are you one of those people that have a hard time finding a book, or don’t know if you should buy this or that book because you haven’t even read it? If so, you are reading the right post. This post will give you ideas and tips on how to look for a book without even knowing what to read, it will help you make decisions, it will [hopefully] encourage you to look into more genres of books to read from, and it will [hopefully] get you to read if you still don’t like reading books.
First things first, when you are picking from a selection of books from your house, or library, you need to find your age level of books, otherwise, you can get bored with a book that’s age level is too young for you, and you can get very confused with a book that’s age level is too grown up for you.
Second, think of your personality, talents, and things you like. This will get you started on an idea of what genre of books you want to read from.
Third, ask yourself if you like to read little or small books. This really matters. If you are someone that absolutely hates books that take forever to read, then avoid the huge books and stay to the smaller books. If you hate small books, than do the exact opposite from what I just said. The only problem with this, is that I think you should read a selection of these kind of books, because it’s healthy for your brain. Taking a break from huge books gives you a brain reliever when changing to small books, while taking a break from small books gives you a challenge when reading huge books. Its always good to change it up.
Fourth, DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER!! You know how the old saying goes. A book could have a cover that has nothing on it, and it could turn out to be the best book ever after you read it.
Fifth, read multiple book reviews on the books when looking for books to get or read. [Wink, wink, my blog is for that exact thing. I have a page that has reviews on books]
Sixth, when buying a book, you always want to read the book first from a library, or any other place that provides books. The reason why is because you might not like the book when you buy it to read for the first time, as well as you might waste you’re money. Trust me, books are expensive. Renting from a library won’t cost you a penny.
Seventh, lastly, think before you do. Don’t buy a bunch of books that you think will be good based on the cover [going back to step four], or summarized story on the back. It can be very hard for you if you don’t know what you are looking for, and haven’t read multiple reviews [going back to step five] on the book. If this does happen, and you dont like the book you got, instead of throwing it away in the trash, or on your dusty bookshelf, give it to Goodwill or re-gift the book to a friend that likes reading. Spend wisely, and save trees.
If you follow all of these steps/tips you can find a great book that will surely interest you and spark an imagination that is somewhere inside you. If you listened to my tips on buying books as well, then you should be good to go with the money part.
Therefore, now you know how to pick a book when it comes time, and now you know how to buy the book wisely on your own as well. Good luck! -Alyssa
