Don’t we all have those things regarding reading that makes us cringe. That is like putting long nails over a blackboard. It is just all kinds of ugh to us. I can pull quite a face, just saying. That is going to be personal to each of us. The pet peeves that is. I think we can all do the face. *wink*
So today you can read some of mine for today’s top ten tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl).
1 Talking to me while I am reading
Sure whatever you are saying is probably important (to you) but could you at least let me finish this chapter!
2 Focusing on how much other people are reading
People seem to like to comment on how much other people read. Either you read too much and you don’t have a life or you couldn’t possibly have actually read the books. Or you don’t read enough and you can’t call yourself a reader. Like stop. Cande says it best~
3 When people hold the books double to read
You know completely breaking the spine so you can see the cover, only the pages. It makes me cringe so hard.
4 Look a like stickers on the cover
You know what I mean. Those things that look like a sticker but is actually apart of the cover and it blocks out at least 25% of the original cover. I hate.
5 When synopsis isn’t on the back
Just put it on the back where I expect it is going to be. Don’t put it on the floppy inside. Don’t expect me to make that effort in a book store. I really don’t care about the reviews for previous books or a whole biography of the author at the moment of decision making.
