Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about new authors…
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 definitely feel comfortable buying books from new authors. I'm not really one of those people who finds an author and reads EVERYTHING that they've written, so I'm constantly on the lookout for new authors. I usually only buy regular priced books if I've heard good things about them though, so that helps keep me from buying not-so-great books. For bargain priced or buy-one-get-one sale books, I'll get just about anything with good cover art and/or a good sounding blurb on the back. And, at the library book sale each month, I even just pick up books that look like they are in like-new condition. I figure it's only a quarter for a paperback and a dollar for hardcover so I can always just throw in on PaperBackSwap if I don't like it!
