Does the length of a book deter you from reading it?

Do long books scare you of? What do you consider a long book?

Nope--if it's well written and a good story, I like longer--more to enjoy!

I don't mind the length of books - long or short. But if the print is small that will sometimes deter me. I read on the cardio machines and if the print is small it is a strain on the eyes.

I'll have to share this with DH. He thinks I'm crazy for reading while working out!

No, lengths of books do not deter me. I read my fair share of looong books, but not too many of them. The Outlander series contain very long books which I do space out, only bc if I read through them too quickly, I will have nothing to read. She takes 4+ yrs to release a new book.

ETA: Oh, I think of a 600+ page book to be a long book.

Basically I just don't buy hardcovers since when I'm really engrossed in a book, I can read for like 4 hrs straight, and it puts a strain on my wrists!

Anything else size/length related usually doesn't matter as long as the story is good

It depends on the book. If it is a long drawn out book with an unnecessary amount of character building and details that are irrelevant to the plot then 500+ pages is too long. However, some books are just so exciting that you wish there were more pages sometimes!

Most of what I read could probably be described as a "long book". The only time it bothers me is if it's long because the author gets a bit wordy, like taking two pages to describe what the sunset looks like or something. If it's chock full of content, the longer the better!
