Good morning lovely readers,
Well it’s Monday, it’s raining, I’m curled up on the sofa under my duvet and all I can think about is whether size really does matter?
What got me thinking about this you might wonder, well, I’m currently comparing the difference between the size of the ARC of Peter James’ Need You Dead with my Kindle and the difference is MASSIVE!!!
Looking at my bookcase there are so many books of different sizes but one thing I have noticed is that the majority of the books I have bought are ‘small’ and by that I mean that I am able to hold it in one hand . . .
I was up most of the night reading Need You Dead and it is MASSIVE!!!
Too big to hold in the way above, take a look . . .
Not only is it bigger in width and height, it is much thicker too . . .
But then again, my Kindle is tiny compared to these two!
It really got me thinking about whether I have been put off a book in the past due to it’s size?
I must admit that sometimes I look at a physical book and am slightly daunted at the thought of starting it due to the size, I just think I’ll never be able to read all that, but if I have a large book on my Kindle, that thought never crosses my mind, obviously because I can’t see how big it is in real life.
Now I’m not saying it affects my enjoyment of the book in question at all, however, I can’t help but wonder what the thought process of the publishers and authors is behind different sized books like this?
And readers, what are your thoughts? Do you like the larger sized books? Do you prefer the smaller option? What about the thickness? Do you get daunted by larger books?
Does size really matter folks?!?
Please let me know in the comments below, I would really to hear your thoughts on this!
Have a super day and keep reading,
