Monday’s Question

Question:  What turns you off fast when you’re reading (in books or blog reading)?

My Answer:  Profanity.  For me, especially, it’s the F-bomb being dropped every few words.  When I see that, I automatically quit reading because it’s a big turn-off for me.  It’s unfortunate, because there are so many good writers out there but they feel they have to use profanity in every sentence.


What about you?  What’s a quick turn-off for you when you’re reading?

    Yes, profanity, too, but encountering misspellings in this automatically red-underlining/spell-(and grammar)checker infused day and age is an instant turn-off for me. I generally don’t go further than that in reading anything (and indeed, I’ve encountered misspellings and grammatical errors in print publications as well as online). It’s usually more a sign of carelessness than arrogance. Well, carelessness can be fixed –and should be!

    I agree Carol. I hope you don’t quit reading my blog though as I know my grammar isn’t always great. I have often thought about taking a refresher course as I’ve realized my grammar skills have gotten worse the older I get. I often wish I could hire a proofreader!
