Many people like the idea of reading but do not really seem to connect with it once they start. A book can very quickly begin to feel dull. But it does not have to be this way. One of the biggest reasons why this happens is that you chose the wrong book. Some books have a tendency to look very captivating by their cover but are surprisingly boring to read once you buy them.
The saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” could not be more accurate. A way to know what books are good for sure is to buy the books that many people read. And New York Times Bestsellers are a way to learn about a lot of such books. Here are some fantastic books featured in New York Times Bestsellers:
