Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on a Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
14th – 20th- What author do you not read and why? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
James Patterson. So, I read a few of his books before I started working at the library. Then I started working at the library. Oh my goodness! He is a “hot author,” which means there are about 2000+ copies ordered of each of his books. People are automatically put on hold for any of his titles. Well, that’s a ton of books and he comes out with a book like every two weeks. Most of them, he just puts his name on but I wont get into that. When his books come out, it takes so much longer to shelve holds. We have a cart dedicated to just his book holds. Then about 3 weeks go by, and there’s a crap ton of copies just sitting our the shelves. Mostly, because they order way too many copies. Then we have to weed them and send them to other branches or the friends shop. It’s such a hassle and SO MUCH WORK. They should order less books and he should think about quality over quantity. End rant. haha. Now, I can’t stand to even look at any of his books. LOL.
What about you? Any author you don’t read?
