What keeps you reading?

As you read, pay attention to what makes you keep reading.

At the beginning of the book, what words did the writer choose that created a character (or plot or setting) you want to know more about?

At what point did you get to the conflict? What makes you care?

What words or situations made you care about the character?

What does the character yearn for?

Note when there are questions that you want to keep reading on to find the answer to.

If you're reading a favorite author, ask yourself why as you read along. What is the author doing that really appeals to you?
