This is the question for this week,
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?
If the author is not known , and this is their debut novel with an interesting synopsis on the cover and any reviews appear favourably to me then I may read it. However, if the author has a good reputation I am more inclined to read their book.
I must admit I didn't try out 'new' authors much until I started blogging. The blogging world has opened up so many new avenues to me in regards actual books and reviews that I feel that my reading repertoire, in 'new' authors has increased tremondously.
I am therefore more inclined to try out 'new' authors , either buying or as my house is being overrun by books(lol!) by borrowing from the library.
