I’ll be honest. I don’t like reading big books, although I'll admit that I loved the book Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. Over 900 pages that I gobbled up. This was before my wonderful Kindle came into my life (I had to stop writing to kiss the device just now).
My issue these days is that I have access to a whole lot more books than I did before. So the page count influences my book buying decision a lot. Under 300 pages I can handle. The cover and blurb have to be phenomenal for me to go above that. It’s extremely rare that I’ll ever buy an “epic” book.
But wait, here comes the ironic part. I’m not a real fan of novella’s either, unless they are an extention of a series. Yes I’m a little strange, and sometimes imbalanced, but at least I know what I like.
What about you, do you have a page number cutoff?
