Discuss Tony Lister's answer to: Do you choose books off the best sellers list?

How do you choose your reading materials?

No I tend to search out libraries, second hand bookstores and start out on various authors, some of whom I discard after a few pages and some who I have followed everything they have published (examples of the later catergorie include Terry pratchett ((to recent times at least cos I suspect he is in the milking the fame stage)) Brian jacques, a lot of the classics and ancient writers Herodotus, tacticus, though I am not so fond of the eighteenth century writers simply because I am not a fan of baroque and elegant writing styles. Im simply a voracious reader but Im not a fan of best sellers
