Musing Mondays

What is your policy when it comes to new authors? Do you feel comfortable purchasing a book or do you prefer to borrow new authors from the library? How often do you 'try out' a new author?

I love reading new authors. Good new authors, that is.

I don't, at all, mind paying for the books. I'm actually more likely to just borrow an author that I know.

The trick is to read the first chapter (or few pages) of the book before you buy it. It doesn't usually take long to decide if the author fits your taste.
