Ask the readers: how do you decide which books to read?

So many books to read….so little time! That’s a perpetual problem for even the most devoted of readers. If you are like me, your buying speed far exceeds your reading speed, and so even in my house, I have hundreds of books I have not yet read. Yet, each trip to the book store ends in at least one purchase. 

When there are so many good choices, how do you select your reading material? 

If you have a reading list, how did you come by it? Do you pick books to read from reviews, such as the NY Times or Amazon? Do you listen to the opinions of your family or friends? Or do you have a couple of trusted readers you rely on or trusted websites? 

How do you decide that this particular book is worth your time, and not all those others?
