Books on a shelf

What makes you decide to read a new book?

Sometimes for me, a book’s title is enough. When I was prepping this list, one book title stopped me in my tracks. I had to find out what The Man in the Microwave Oven by Susan Cox was all about. I don’t normally read mysteries, but this one might be heading to my TBR pile.

I’ll also pick up a new book because of a well-designed book cover. Spellbreaker by Charlie N. Holmberg has a gorgeous cover. I really need to stop staring at it and finish writing this post so I can put it on hold.
