How do you choose your reading materials?
No. Because most of them are about sex and murder. The sex , I can stand, but the murder is depressing.
The Iron Web ~ Larken Rose
What are your thoughts on Larken Rose's speech from "The Iron Web?"
It doesn't have to be the best seller. Truth is, I usually find books that are not best sellers to be more interesting. I seldom see best sellers to be really the ones that contains good contents. But I usually go for the books that I really need and want. Though I find it easier to buy books online (barnes & noble, amazon or ebay).
Yes i do. I think it would really make you decide and figure out the best book if you just base on the best books list. I read a lot of books that came from it and i am satisfied.
Yes, I read books from the best seller lists (there are several lists). I especially like Grisham and LeCarre, You seldom get a poorly written book on a best seller list. Mysteries are my favorite.
Sometimes, I do check books on the best seller lists, but more often than not, I used to buy books of my favorite authors.
I usually buy books that sound interesting to me, not because it's a known author or a best seller list. However if there is an author that I like, I would be interested to read more of their books if I enjoy their writing.
