Lately, I’ve been on a book buying spree where I’m purchasing more than I can read. The fact that I don’t have much free time because of the twins is a good excuse...er... reason, but still… I should really slow down. The thing is, when I find a good book, I have a hard time not bringing that treasure home with me. Many paperbacks don’t stay on the shelves longer than three months before they’re sent back to the publisher. What if the book I just discovered suffers that fate before I return with a plump wallet? No. I don’t like to take such chances. If the back of the book interests me, I read the first few pages. If I’m still hooked, off to the cash register I go.
What about you? Is there any particular author’s book you have to have? Or do you follow a certain genre instead? Are you an impulsive book buyer or do you research your next purchase?
