275-399

Anything more is too big and heavy to carry around. I take the book I'm reading with me all over the place. If it's too big it hurts my arm O.o

Me too Rose! But one of my favorite books is over 500 and another is over 400, so I don't mind bigger books, but it's very hard to keep my attention through them unless they're amazing. Sometimes they just seem to droan on and on.

I like some bigger books too...but they cause physical pain lol

A longer book is great if it holds my attention...otherwise I'm bored O.o

i well read any good book but with the longer books you have more info on the chaters and the story unfolds with more meaning and in less of a rush while shorter books seem to go really fast with less back ground on the charter and the hole story

I like books that are somewhere around 200 or 300 pages. Or more. :3

I agree with Annmarie (hehe that rhymed :3), short books don't give you enough information. And a lot of the time when I read a good book that's not that long, I feel like I need more.

It depends on the book! Some books are amazing but you just want to know the end then there are the best books which you wish would never end!

In my opinion I like longer books, because I hate when I get to the end and want the book to be longer. The longer the book is the less I have that feeling.
But I do have to say there is a down side to longer books, too.
