    Well first sentences can be misleading. I usually know if it's a bad book once it's too late and I'm already home reading. How do I know? I keep putting it down and picking it up and putting it down. A good book always holds my attention. Likewise I hold the receipt for the bad ones.

    I don't usually buy random books. I like to get recommendations or browse Wikipedia for books I think I might like.
