This weeks question is:
"If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author?"
Absolutely! - I am slightly obsessive about this and will often want to read a series and will locate or buy the first two or three in the series before starting to read. There is nothing more irritating that getting to the end of a book, and not having the next in the series to start. It is rather like missing an old friend.
Even if the book is not part of a series, I still locate others by the same author.
Obsessive or organized and creatively logical? Of course I have to read every book in a series - in order - once I find an author I like -and will hunt all sources, including used book stores to track down those elusive tales. And do I prefer that author's works in print -digital or paper - or audio? Decisions, decisions - and then remembering which format for new publications. Keeping all that straight takes serious organization - and I have been guilty of buying a book twice - sometimes in 2 formats. I, too, like to have all the volumes of a trilogy - or whatever number - when reading them. I don't like waiting a year or more to find out what happens next. Thanks for introducing me to the Book Hop!ReplyDelete
Hopping on through. I agree with you on series though at the moment I have a review book that's number 5 in a series I haven't read. I'm really trying to break a habit of a lifetime and not go get those first 4 books...ReplyDelete
