We see many readers, at the library, who take an authors' complete work off the shelf and read it straight through.
Not my cup of tea.
There are others who read only the new book by whomever, then we don't see them again until he/she writes another new one.
The recent weeks have also seen a new Martha Grimes, Elizabeth George and the last Robert Parker western. At least I assume it to be the last, although we've seen, on a fairly regular basis, that death does not mean a person won't publish again...
Later this summer I'll pick up the new Daniel Silva. In between, there are more than enough good books out there to keep me busy. In spite of the perennial warning not to judge a book by its cover, there are many times that it is the cover that catches my eye, more than an author's name or genre. Other than an irrational (and fairly consistent)avoidance of book club books (snobbery, according to some) my taste is eclectic, satisfying whatever mood happens to strike.
What's on your summer reading list??
