From the To be Read pile, which one do I choose now?
Start from the bottom or
The most colourful cover of the book on top?
Dependent on mood? – romance, thriller, biography, drama, Young Adult
Or title – Suddenly One Summer, The Seven Sisters, After the Crash, Dreams
I pick one up from the middle
An author I haven’t read before
I study the cover
Small bites of the journey
Ready for embarkation…
I turn to the back of the book…
What is this book about? Who are the characters? Where is it set? What time? Reviews?
I lift the book to my face.
New book smell! Paper…
I turn to the inside back – how many pages?
A quick calculation – how long will it take to read
Before I can start the next book.
Chapter 1, Page 1…
A new journey has begun…
