It's Follow Friday once again and well, if you don't know it by now, Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee.
The Question of the Week is: What is your usual monthly book budget?
To be honest, I really don't have one set. If I had to estimate or guess, I'd say it's about fifty dollars a month--although depending upon what's getting released during the month, it can go up. My priority is always the new releases--that I've been waiting for--followed by books I've been thinking about getting--usually these books are picked based upon reviews from other bloggers and/or the summaries on the back covers. Er, if I'm painfully honest, covers also do play a part in what books I end up getting from the bookstore. I am a huge sucker for a snazzy cover.
It's also Blog Hop time again and well, Blog Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books.
The Question of the Week is: If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title?
I'm going to admit that I've been guilty of reading a series out of order before. However, I do prefer to read a series in order. Actually, I'm pretty funny about it and I'll buy one book at a time--just in case I fall out of love with the series--unless I'm really, really in love with the series.
And those are the questions this week! Feel free to leave me a comment and if you'd like for me to follow you, please leave a link! Well, you can leave a link anyways--I always love to see other answers to the weekly questions. :D
