I got this topic from the post Ms. Sasser posted onto the Google+ site. It caught my eye because I also agree with it. I feel as though if I can't relate to someones writing as the reader and it's not interesting then it's boring. I also feel that way about my own writings. When given an assigned book from the professor that must be read and an assigned book report I feel under pressure. Even though in my last blog post I stated I like the feeling of being under pressure because I work harder, but this is different. Unless the book is interesting and I enjoy reading it and can also relate to then I feel like my writing will not be boring. I cannot tell you how many times I have read assigned books and even books of my own choice and they end up being boring. If the book is boring I just put it down and let it collect dust. I'm also the kind of person to judge the book by its cover. I know that it's wrong and I shouldn't do that but I do. If the book cover looks boring then I won't give the book the time of day. "Never Judge A Book By Its Cover", I've heard that saying for years and years. I understand what it means, but I think that if the author of a book is writing an outstanding piece of work then I believe the book cover should be outstanding as well. To attract the attention of the reader like myself. If I had to write a mini-book for a class assignment, I would decorate the cover to make it very appealing to the eye. In some cases I will make the cover more exciting then the writing itself.
I personally like books that are about real life, like my favorite book, "A Child Called It". That book is far from boring and the cover shows a little boy that's been through hell and back, and you can see it in his eyes. The cover and the title caught my attention so I gave it a chance. Come to find out I feel in love with it and that's how it became my favorite book. It's far from boring. So I do agree with the title, "If It's Boring to You, It's Boring to You Reader". I refuse to write a paper that's boring to me because the audience will put it down and let it collect dust like I do with books.
