So. It’s that time of year again.
The books I’ve waited so long for are being released…all at the same time. For the past several months, I’ve been without a truly GOOD book, and now several will be put on the shelves simultaneously.
Why does everything seem to happen at once? This principle seems to apply to almost everything in my life: holidays, birthdays, tests, applications, vacations…
Here are the books I am most anxious to read (in no particular order):
1. Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter – March 13
2. The Serpent’s Shadow, Kane Chronicles Book 3, by Rick Riordan – May 1
3. City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare – May 8
Is it worth it to buy all three books at a relative price of $20, considering all three will be hardback? Probably not. Do I really want to spend the money to buy all three books on my Kindle Fire, which would be somewhat cheaper? Probably not. Last option: do I want to reserve the books at my public library so I can be put on a waiting list that is already 8 people deep? No. But I’m going to anyway.
Authors and those involved in the world of publishing…here is something to think about:
Don’t publish your books at the same time. I’d like to be reading quality literature year-round. Also, maybe I could afford your books if I only needed to purchase one every few months.
