I am picky in the sense that I only read books from author's I read when I was a teen, so as an adult I never actually looked for new authors or tried to spread my horizons etc. Because of this, I'm stuck to reading novel series by a small amount of authors who don't publish at regular intervals. I basically go through long periods of drought before I read another book. How do you get into a new series? Do you just randomly pick up a book and start reading or what? or do you rely on suggestions from your friends or book reviews?
