Booking Through Thursdays: August 2, 2012

 A Weekly Meme Hosted by Booking Through Thursday 

Two questions about selecting your books.

Pooch asks:

Overall, what factor most influences your choice of your next read?

Sefcug asks:

What is it that makes you want to read a book by an author you have never read before?

I have such a huge TBR shelf right now, that sometimes it can be difficult to know what to read next. This year I keep reading a lot of the same genres but this month I'm trying to force myself to reach for other things to get some of the challenges done and not fall into a rut. Sometimes if a book is borrowed I have to reach for it sooner, otherwise it's typically mood. If I'm reading a series then it's obviously an easy pick next, the next book in that series!

I don't care if a book is from a new author or established one, never paid much attention. If I find a book that looks interesting from the plot, and covers catch my eye too, I don't pay too much attention to the author background.
