Okay Jen...since you started it

I've got a fun lil question for everyone.

This topic is being discussed on several groups I'm in (yahoo, etc) so I want your inputs on it.

How do you decide what to read next? I know that Jen and I buy tons of books and then don't read them right away, as we have others that we had before and still havn't read. So How do you decide the order of your reading?

Do you stop reading something to start a new release? (I did last night!)

Tell me.

I just depends on what I'm in the mood for. But if I start a series I generally will read the whole series through and not read anything else until I'm caught up with it. I just did that with Gerard's Bodyguards and Kent's SG-5s.

Do you stop reading something to start a new release?

Nope. I have to finish a book before starting another one. I'm anal that way. LOL

There, you have been told. :p

I don't decide a head of time what to read.. I, too, buy lots of books in advance and read them whenever. If a new book is something I really want to read, I usually start it too.. and nope, no need to finish a book before starting another, I read fast ;)

I guess I should answer too huh.


Well for the most part, my review books go first (not just the books here, but for the actual review sites)

Other than that, I mainly pick and choose based on wants. Though If I've been reading a series and a new one comes out and I get it, I will drop everything else to read that book.

I've also started a book cuz Jen or someone says read it.

Ya know, for me, what goes directly to the top of the list is a new story to a series. For instance, when Marilyn Lee's BL5 came out like a week or two ago, I bought it and started readig it immediately cuz I love the entire series and waiting with baited breath for the update.

Now, I've got a gazillion ebooks I haven't read yet. Why? Because I live in NY now and I'm riding the subway for at least 2 hours a day. So, I have put the ebooks aside and have spent mucho dinero on paperbacks. I love reading more now than I ever did.

My ebooks have been put on the backburner because of the paperbacks, although I only read them on the subway. When I get home, I do try to catch up on my ebooks. I normally hit my favorite authors first, go through to make sure I've read everything I have, then delve into other stories friends have recommended.

I rarely stop reading one book and start another. I normally finish what I've started, however, at this moment, I started a paperback that is moving pretty slow, so I began reading another (Kate Douglas ROCKS by the way). I have history with Kate's stories so any story by an author I am familiar with will always go ahead of the class.
