Today’s Musing Mondays question:
“What is your policy when it comes to new authors? Do you feel comfortable purchasing a book or do you prefer to borrow new authors from the library? How often do you ‘try out’ a new author?”
I think I’ve mentioned before that I don’t really buy books anymore now that I’m making negative money, so it should come as no surprise that I prefer to borrow books by new-to-me authors from the library or friends. Even when I did buy books often, I wouldn’t take a chance on a book I wasn’t going to like; either I had to like the author or it had to be recommended to me by several people. These days, the only way I’m going to buy a book is if I’ve read it and loved it and plan on reading it again and lending it to others to read.
