Hopping !

We've reached Friday, so it's time for another Book Blogger Hop!!  Hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books, this is a great chance to meet other bloggers, visit them on the web ... and just have fun!!    And it lasts from Friday to Monday, so there's plenty of time to Hop.    
I'll hop... as soon as I finish this.....

This week's question comes from Christina at The Paperback Princess"If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, so you always start with the first title?"

Yes --the story usually makes more sense to me if I read them in order.   I once read a bunch of Patricia Cornwell books out of order, and it was pretty confusing.  I enjoyed the stories, but if an author has a character refer back to something, or someone, it makes more sense if I know the previous story.      And speaking of series --- I sometimes have to be careful to not completely gorge myself.   What I mean is: In the past, I've discovered an author/series and pick up a whole bunch of the books and read them right away ... and then feel like I've overeaten, so to speak.   So what I do now is start with the first and second book, and then see how it goes.

Happy Hopping, everyone!!!

Totally agree! I "overate" two James Patterson series for so long, I'm still feeling the hangover :D

depends on the author and the series.

something like Terry Pratchett, where each book ususally stars a different character, you can read the first book in the series to learn the world, then bounce around a bit.

but just about everyone else, I better be starting at the beginning!!!
