This weeks question is: Do you have a bookish pet peeve? If so, what is it? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
I hate poorly-edited books. I feel like I spend almost as much time reporting grammatical errors to Amazon as I do actually reading books.
OK, not really. But still. I have stopped reading books that were otherwise fine because the writing pulled me out of the story over and over again.
I get that indie writers might not be able to afford professional editing. But I see the same problems in books published by major publishing houses. And it just…sets my teeth on edge.
What about you? What’s the one thing about books that just gets you all riled up? I’ll do my best to calm you down in the comments.
The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book-related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog
