I am reading a lot of books from library.Have formed a mystery reading group in our local library in Wigtown Scotland.I look for books by authors I like and then the librarians make suggestions which are usually spot on
Even if you only borrow books from the library, you can help your favorite authors by asking the library to purchase their books. I have a second edition of Lead Poisoning out and my second novel, Stress Fractures, is being released today. Ask for them at your local library! :-)
Another way to help favorite authors even if you read their books in the library is to post reviews. A few sentences will do, and be honest. The author appreciates you taking the time, and the more reviews there are, the more likely others are to want to read him or her.
