  1. My choice of books is very complicated due to limited reading time!

    I use several criteria…a favorite author wrote it, I’m currently reading the genre, I’m ready for a change in genre since I’ve OD’d on one, I love the blurb…seldom does winning a contest make the deciding factor, but I’ll at least add it to my TBR list!

    I use the same criteria when choosing which ARC to read…but then if previous books by the author has won a contest it might play more heavily in my decision.

  2. I really don’t have a criteria regarding reading. I’ll read most books. However saying that, if it’s an author I know, I’ll read it first. Discovering new to me authors is fabulous.
    If the book wan an award, I’m thrilled for them! It doesn’t really make me want to buy it immediately.
    Stay safe and healthy
