Personally I’m a fan of short chapters when reading a book, I feel like I focus on the book a lot better when the chapters are shorter. It’s also a lot easier to read a book in public (like waiting before an appointment/on a train) when the chapters are shorter as you may need to abruptly stop reading which I always find really annoying when the chapters are longer as I feel like it ruins the flow.
Although, when a book has longer chapters I’m less likely to continue reading when I really should be doing other things, like sleeping or studying. This is as it feels like you’re reading a lot more and it doesn’t nearly provoke the “just one more chapter” mindset as I find myself more guilty over the procrastination when the chapters are longer. Whereas when the chapters are shorter it’s much more difficult to put down and I often find “just one more chapter” turns into twenty more.
So which do you prefer, longer or shorter chapters?
