Annoying Things About Books – Part 2

Another thing that bugs me about books: Previews at the end of a book.

You know, that annoying moment when you think you’ve got a couple more pages left of your book and then it finishes and then the last few pages are a preview for another book.

ARGH!!

It lulls you into a false sense of security, thinking you have loads more pages of this exciting book, and then you’re stuck with a preview. Sometimes it’s good if it’s for the next book in a series, but at the same time it’s irritating because you still have to wait for that next book to be published before you get to find out what happens after the preview!

Then again, it’s annoying if it’s for a book you’re not interested in.

Or just annoying, full stop.

Why sell a book with a title saying it’s a certain book, and THEN stick a couple of pages from another book?! I paid for the book whose name is on the cover, not for the preview of another book!

And surely it’s a waste of paper?!

Do you agree?
