Where have all the books gone?
I know for some that this sounds crazy, I know there is a ton of books out there. Let me explain. Back in the day, I'm going back say 5-6 years ago, maybe less, I'd be buying 25-30 books in a month. Maybe not every month but the numbers were always over 18 books. Now I'm lucky if I get 8 books in a month. I looked at May and I had 11. A high number for the year, still less than what I use to buy.
I don't know if it's because my favorite authors have written less or moved on to other things but...In fact, this year is the first year in a while that all I've had time to read is the latest books out. I am having fun reading what I have laying around.
Because I use to buy so much is why I have so many to read. Don't get me wrong, there are tons of good authors out there that I read, I just don't buy as many as I use too. Heck, I don't review as many ARC's as I did just last year.
What about you? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Do you feel fewer books are being published, or is it that many of my favorite authors have moved on and I haven't found new ones?
