I read based on both. With an author I'm familiar with and enjoy, it's almost a sure thing that I'll like the new book. If reader reviews look positive, I'll test out a "sample" on my nook & if it proved to be as good as the reviews, then I will buy it. Sometimes, I'll read author blogs and read what they recommend. I've found quite a few great books that way.

I read based on both, too, but once I get hooked on an author, I tend to read everything they write. Barbara O'Neal is a good case in point. I loved the first book of hers I read so much, I ran out and devoured everything I could find--and then started in on her books written as Barbara Samuel!

I am a sucker for my favorite authors. I anxiously await their next installments. I do, however, read suggestions and selections by B & N for new writers. I have found a few new roads to take.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.
