>Booking Through Thursday

This week’s question is:  Series? Or Stand-alone books?

Answer: Depends on the book.  For the most part I prefer stand-alones, as I can put the investment into only one book and not think of the next books that are in the series.  Its not that I don’t like series, I just find that if you find a book in a series that you don’t like, especially the first one, then you may be missing a really good book in a series that may come down the road.  Also there is the financial and time that one invests into a series, depending on how long the series goes on for and how long the books are. There is also the factor that if you can’t get the first book in a series, its really not worth the effort to read it. There are always exceptions.
