Are you doing any reading Challenges this year?

For me I am doing my own reading challenge. I want to read 12 books this year. I know not much compared to some of the ones I have seen around but with two kids my reading time is limited. As for what books/genre or what not, it is what ever that happens to be on my shelf that I have not read. I have more then enough to choose from.

So if you are doing a reading challenge what ones are you doing, how many books are you trying to read? Is it a challenge of your own or is it one you entered on a blog or site else where?

At what point do you decide if you like a book or not?

For me once I move past the cover and the book synopsis and begin to read I like to be drawn into the book and its character by the first half a dozen chapters if not sooner. I love when I am reading a book and I want to keep reading to see what is going to happen next. That the book is so good that I hate to put it down and when I do I can't wait to go back to it.

As for not liking a book I can't say that I have picked up a book and not like it but I tend to stay in my comfort zone of reading which is Vampires. Now there have been time when reading a book or book series that I had to walk away for a bit but not becasue I didn't like it but becasue I was burnt out on the series or just wasn't feeling the book at the time.

How about you at what point do you decide if you like a book or not?

Do you judge a book by it's cover?

I do, it is the first thing that draws me to a book or new series other then the title. But in order for me to buy it the synopsis has to make me want to continue reading.

How about you, Do you judge a book by its' cover?
