February 4th: Do you take advantage of free chapter previews?


Maybe I should, I mean a lot of times I know already from page 1 that it is a no go, so a free chapter preview would help. But, I do not know, it sort of feels like cheating. I just want to buy a book and hate or love it.

But I SHOULD check them out. Cos it sucks when you buy a book and then by page 2 you are already bored.

But then where is that free chapter? At the best part? Cos I want the beginning to see if I can slog through or not


  1. I'm with you. I don't bother with them.

  2. I publish a lot of excerpts on the blog so I guess that counts :)

  3. I never have. I'll read an excerpt but not an entire chapter.

  4. I don't really see the point of reading a preview.

  5. I don't bother either. I usually borrow from the library if I haven't tried an author before buying. :)

  6. I never bother with a free chapter. Even if they have them at the end of a book.

  7. I like to go into highly anticipated books with a blank slate, so I tend to avoid all forms of spoilers, previews and excerpts included :D

    1. I do like the same, I want to jump in, and fail or win

  8. I don't read chapter previews on new to me authors and series, but I will read the chapter review at the back of a book that is for the next in series.

  9. I think the free chapter is usually at the end of a book

  10. I don't bother either, but I really should...

  11. Right... what if the chapter is the only good part of the book? That would be annoying.
