This week’s Booking Through Thursday asks two questions:
“‘Overall, what factor most influences your choice of your next read?’
‘What is it that makes you want to read a book by an author you have never read before?'”
I guess the factor that most influences my choice of next read would be my mood. If I’m feeling down a quick comfort read is what I need. And if I’m feeling particularly energetic then I tackle books that are from genres unfamiliar to me or books of a chunkier variety. Challenges I’m participating in may also influence me.
The thing that makes me want to read a book by an author I have never read before is the genre of the book. If its a Golden Age mystery, a cosy mystery or a classic than I’ll read it even if I’m not familiar with the author.
