Tell Me Something Tuesday is hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings. Check out her blog for upcoming topics! I saw a post by Jen (Twimom) and thought it was fun and decided to join in. So I’ll be jumping in sporadically 🙂
Do you take advantage of free chapter previews?
No, never! In fact, I find them irritating. First of all, since I don’t know they are coming, I’ve been mislead on how much longer is left in my current read. This is especially frustrating in audiobooks because I tend to listen to them when I’m driving. And I’m really careful to have a back up ready to go as I near the end of my current read. But if there’s a free chapter preview, I reach the end much earlier than anticipated and sometimes don’t have another book ready.
And, no, I don’t want to read the preview because I either
- Really want to read the book already and don’t need the intro spoiled for me when I’m not in the right space to read it.
- Don’t have any interest in the story at all.
I can honestly say, I’ve never purchased a book due to a free chapter preview. But I’ve been frequently annoyed.
