What makes you want to read a book?

That’s something I have been thinking about a lot lately. After I finished playing through the Bioshock series over the past week, I was interested in learning more about the fictional city called Rapture and how it ended up on the bottom of the ocean. Luckily, there is a novel written where they talk about Rapture and how it came to be and I immediately purchased it online. In many ways, video games inspire me to read more. I’ve read most, if not all of the books related to the Dragon Age series, the books related to Metro, a book related to the Elder Scrolls series and so on. It must be the great world building that makes me interested in knowing more about it.

When it comes to other types of books, I usually go for fantasy or adventure type books, mostly because I love dreaming about other worlds and realities.. But I can also enjoy a good non fiction book. But what makes you choose a book? That’s what I’m really curious about. Do you choose specific genres? Or specific authors? Like maybe just female or maybe just male? Do you prefer fiction or non fiction? Please let me know because I’m really curious. Do you ever choose or judge a book based on it’s literal cover?
