Musing Monday - March 9, 2009

Today's topic is New Authors.

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 confess I like to stick with what I know. I definitely gravitate toward books with familiar authors but eventually I run out of books to read and have to branch out. I'm usually fine with buying a book by a new author, especially if I've heard or read good things about it. I figure that every author I've read was new to me at one point.

I don't go to the library very often (rarely) because of the deadlines and the germs, but I do go to the library book sales and I'm much more inclined to pick up new authors when I'm paying .50 an inch!

I'm okay with buying new authors, too. If it's a story that interests me, I'll get it.
