I guess that depends on whether you think it's more important that someone reads the book, or that they pay for the privilege before they do.
Everyone is different. I dabble in writing off and on, and my husband is the only one who has ever read any fiction I have written. The process of creating something is what makes me happy and motives me, and whether someone reads it when it's done or not, doesn't matter to me. Everyone is different, which means that what motivates is us different.
