I've started following the blog sweet green tangerine and she does a great link up called the.book.chat which (obviously) pertains to books. This week the topic is pet peeves relating to books and reading I don't have many but here are mine:
1. Too long or no chapters at all. I like to sometimes read in really short spurts, like waiting to make coffee or comercial breaks of a sporting event, so breaking things up really allows me to read for short periods of time.
2. Someone trying not to spoil a book for me but still talking about it and spoiling it in a different way. For example not telling me the ending but saying "That had the biggest plot twist I've ever read" then the whole time I'm reading I'm trying to guess the plot twist and it's not as exciting when I get to read it.
3. Christian Fiction, don't even get me started...
4. Weak, uninteresting female characters who rely on a man.
5. Hardcover books, I hate having to hold onto them and read these big bulky things, but I also hate waiting until they come out in paperback.
6. This is something I do that might be a pet peeve of others: if you are reading in public (transit, airplane, park, coffeshop) I will try to see what book you are reading and judge you for it (good and bad judgement :)
