My answer to Follow Friday's question is.....
It really depends on the month. Some months I don't spend anything on books and then other months I tend to spend a lot. It primarily has to do with the fact that I try to get deals on shipping when ordering and because I am on a budget I tend to spend my book budget for a number of months at once. Also it also depends on how much I end up spending on library fines.
The question here is:
"If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title?"
Yes, unless I have read that one can read the book without knowing what happened in the previous book. But for the most part I do try to find the first one in series. But it really does annoy me if I can't find the first book when I am at the library.
