This week Booking Through Thursday asks the following two questions:
Overall, what factor most influences your choice of your next read?
The biggest factor that influences my choice of reading is probably the mood I am in – do I feel like reading something serious, or do I need something light and fun, or maybe something in between. Another factor may be guilt at a book having been sitting unread on my shelf for too long.
What is it that makes you want to read a book by an author you have never read before?
Usually I’ll pick up something to read by someone I have never read before based on what I’ve read about them on various blogs or in reviews. Another reason may be authors recommended by my daughter, who reads a lot, or something I saw a friend reading.
