Bet that grabbed your attention, huh? We gravitate toward the curtain instead of the small box on Let's Make A Deal. On Christmas Day, we pick up the biggest gift under the tree.
Some prefer curvy cuties, and others are attracted to muscular men. Many like tiny women, and some prefer shorter men. We may eat a lot of chocolate, or just a tiny bit. Some like Chihuahuas, while plenty like Great Danes.
When it comes to reading a novel, I find that the length and size are important, preferring to read a book that's a little longer, giving the story some time to unfold at a leisurely pace.
But that doesn't mean a book that's 200 pages or less can't be fulfilling. Many authors know how to grab our attention right away, providing unforgettable quotes, superbly crafted tales, heart stopping romance or fast paced thrillers, even if there aren't many pages to read.
We all have the power of choice, and we like what we like. Hopefully our preferences still allow us to be kind and tolerant to others who feel differently.
But what about you? Do you prefer to read a larger novel, or are you okay with a quick anthology? Does size matter to you?
