After being drawn to a books cover we then go to the blurb. I personally like a short but to the point blurb with snappy sentences which draw me in. I also like to see quotes from other authors who have read the book and voiced their opinions. This tells me if another author has read the book, especially an author I know and like then there is a good chance that I too will enjoy the book.
The other thing I tend to do is go straight to my favourite authors to check if they have anything new out, this is of course now made a lot easier with the ability to pre-order. Pre-ordering is fantastic, I love being able to pre-order a book, so I know that as soon as it is published it will be delivered to either my Kindle or my home. The excitement of putting on the calendar when the book is due out and due to arrive, the excitement of waiting for it to arrive. I love the build-up to a new book being released by one of my favourite authors (I have a list)
So, that is my process of choosing and buying a new book. How do you choose which books to buy? What draws you in? I'd love to hear your thoughts on what makes you pick a book up.
Keep your eye out for my post of Kindle V's Books. The ever growing argument, I'd love to hear your views on that too.
