How do you usually pick out your books--by author, based on recommendations of friends, Bestseller lists, just look until you find something that catches your interest???

I usually do all of the above haha! But for most of the books I have read, even when I was a child, I found when I went on my many trips to the bookstore. I always grabbed some type of coffee (my parents allowed this starting at age 10 with decaf of course, until I was 13 ) then I would go to the sections that interest me and start skimming books, picking out the ones that had an interesting plot, then read the first chapter. By then it either goes home with me or I continue my search .

I realize that is pretty unconventional, but I have been doing that for as long as I can remember, even in my local and elementary school libraries in the 2nd grade!!

I browse and pick things to read. If I really like an author, I tend to read everything they have and then I'll start browsing to choose again
