The Page 69 Test
Today I'm over at Inkspot, the blog for Midnight Ink authors, talking about The Page 69 Test. Marshall McLuhan, author of The Gutenberg Galaxy, recommends reading page 69 of a novel, and if you like that page, buying the book. I posted Page 69 of both of my 2013 releases (Fatal Descent and A Basket of Trouble) to try out the strategy. Would you keep reading after those excerpts? Will you buy the books? And what do you think of the strategy? Is the Page 69 Test a valid way to make your reading choices? Leave a comment there, and let me know what you think.
