Random Chat: Samplers

What makes a good blurb?

Step up, take a seat, make yourself at home and let’s chat!

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

So I noticed sometimes Netgalley has samplers up for grabs and I am sure other sites do as well.

I wondered if this is something you do – read samplers, or otherwise read the first chapters in a book.

Does this influence if you buy the book or not?

Since the large majority of the books I get are ARC from Netgalley I prefer to read the entire book but I would love to hear your thoughts!
