Have you ever bought a book so that it can sit on your shelf--unread? Not all readers buy books for the same reasons, and you may buy a book when your friend recommends it (and then find you can't get through the first chapter).
What factors influence your decision to buy a book? Do you ever buy a book simply because it was on a bestseller list, or because you think it will look good on your shelf? So, is there such a thing as a book snob? Can you ever be too particular about what you read?
