My friend Cath, over at Read_Warbler made some lists concerning book series that she is reading, or would like to read.  As I responded to her post I realized that I needed to do the same thing.  If for no other reason than to prove to myself that I was under control when it came to series of books.

Obviously I am NOT under control!…

I have always preferred series of books when I love the characters and there’s a good story to go with them.  Lately I find that I have begun to wonder if there’s such a thing as a stand alone book anymore!!

I’m finding it harder to buy the number one book in a series when it’s a new release. If at least 2 of a series is already release I find it easier.  I think because if I read 2 books with the same characters and storyline that I won’t easily forget it, but one with a year to wait for book 2 and a year after that to wait for book 3.. well..I’m at the point I need a memory pill of some sort!
