What grabs you when you’re reading a book?  What draws you in?

I’ve been working my way through my massive TBR pile, one portion of a book at a time.

Wait, one portion?

Yes, one portion.  You see, none of the books so far that I’ve attempted have drawn me in and refused to let me go.  I’m not going to name names, though.

I find that I take a book with me to school, read some, then I have to put it back into my bookbag because class is starting.  Then it’s a couple of days before I can even have time to read again.

And I find myself not caring about the characters or storylines that I was reading.  I just don’t feel the need or desire to know what happens to the characters.

I plan on moving to some re-reading that is on my TBR pile because I know those books will grab me and not let go.

I want to be upset when I have to put a book down.  I want to feel that “I can’t wait to get back to this book” feeling.

What makes you put a book down?  What makes you keep reading?
