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 generally jump right in when it comes to new authors. I love discovering new writers. And I have no problem purchasing a book by an author I've never heard of before.
I try out new authors every month. How many depends on my reading kick at the time. Once in a while (like this year), I work my way straight through a series. But my usual situation is quite the opposite: I enjoy trying new authors so much that I neglect series or novelists I am familiar with just for the thrill of trying something different!
I've have read five new authors since January 1. What about you? How many new authors have you read this year?
