Okay, so this is a bit of a selfish thread, but it may be interesting anyway. When you go to a reading by an author, what types of chapters do you prefer to hear: Descriptive chapters, action scenes such as battle scenes or chapters where magic is manifested, highly thoughtful situations that are introspective and filled with contemplative issues, or chapters with many characters and lots of dialogue? If I left out any other preferences, please state them. It's often very hard to decide what to read aloud to people who are unfamiliar with your books and your world. What do you think would leave the most lasting impression?
