Choices, Choices. . .Too Many?
Okay, you've forced me out of sinus infection fog to blog.
You know that sickness my sister had last week while we were in VA? Well, I got it. I've missed 1.5 days of work -- in addition to my vacation days. I've missed 3 Sundays of church in a row from snow, travel, and sickness. I feel like a heathen. Now I'm on antibiotics and praying they take affect soon.
Yesterday, I got this catalog in the mail. Boy is it like putting a kid in a candy store when you hand one of these to a fiction lover. Nice thing is that browsing these pages is also good enlightenment for what I do in my work.
I'm amazed at all the choices there are in fiction these days. The growth in CBA fiction over the 15 years I've been in the market are tremendous.
I look through this catalog and realize there is not nearly enough money or time for me to get all the books I'm sure I would enjoy reading. Then, too, there are plenty of books in here that I couldn't care less about reading just by looking at their covers and descriptions.
So, my question for you is how do you decide what books are worth your investment of time and money to read when there are so many good choices in both CBA and ABA? Do you stick to a favorite author or a favorite genre? What might entice you to try something different?
