I miss the good old days when you went to the bookstore to search for a new book to read. I remember begging my mom to drive me to Barnes and Noble where I search the young adult aisles furiously for interesting novels. There would always be so many! Then I'd tell my mom I was ready and she would tell me I could only get a couple out of my pile because, looking back, they were pretty expensive.
Now I find myself browsing Amazon but not finding nearly as many as I remember. Is it because my taste has changed? Or because I am just too afraid to commit to a book that I can't open to some random page and read to determine if it's interesting to me?
I've found that I have that problem more often than not these days. Every time I find a good read I hesitate on purchasing it because I'm afraid that I will absolutely hate the book and have wasted my money. I know it sounds silly and all the books I've looked at are great, but every time there's that thought lingering in the back of my mind.
Does anybody else have this problem?
