Hi all,

I'm an avid reader (mostly classical Russian fiction) as well as an aspiring entrepreneur. I'm currently researching what matters most to people who read often to potentially create a really good solution to enrich your experience.

I'd really value your opinions and have put together a very short survey that will take about 5 minutes to complete. You can also opt-in for a more in-depth discussion about your reading habits if you'd like.

Enjoy your reading adventures!

Realistic character development that readers can observe a little bit in every chapter, not too long chapters, different types of characteristics w/ different views & interests.
I mainly read non-fiction, but if I were to make an exception I would look for these things in a fiction book (+ interesting plot)

Probably How fast the book turns out to be in less than 3-5chapters if I don't get the main idea within 3-5chapters I struggle on till the book is finished :wink:

Hello everyone. For me, the storyline has to be realistic, the characters need to be believable. I don't mind short or long chapters, as long as the characters are interesting then I'll read it.
There should also be a big twist or reveal near the end of the book. :)

this probably won't help you, but for me - it has to hold my interest. I know this is simplistic, but as a compulsive reader for over 70 years, that is my answer. Let me think on this and maybe I can come up with a more detailed and definitive answer.

There's nothing wrong in what you've said, Cattleman. It is true. There's nothing worse than trying to read a book which isn't interesting. I usually give it 50-100 pages. If it doesn't hold my interest by then, then I give up on it. :-D
