Overall, what factor most influences your choice of your next read?
Since I read for my own entertainment, some months I have a theme that influences my choice of books I will read next. Example...In July I wanted to read Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series, so most of the books I read in July were books from that series. This month of August my theme is "Jane Austen" therefore, I am reading some short stories by Jane that I've never read before, anything relating to Jane, or anything about Jane. Also this month I will be reading two ARC books and reviewing them. Other than that I will be reading my Jane Austen theme books.What is it that makes you want to read a book by an author you have never read before?
I love reading books by authors I've never read before, because that is a way of finding new authors to enjoy reading.
Mostly I find them by reading reviews by other bookies. Book blogging has made my TBR pile grow in leaps and bounds. Someday, maybe I will get them all read. I keep telling myself..."No more books, read what is on your shelves now." But then I visit another bookies blog...well you know how it works, I just have to have that book!!!
How about you, are you a moody reader, or do you have an organized way of picking your next read?
