  1. Yes.🙂 I like both. (Just answering here rather than on blog today as that’s about all I have to say.)

  2. My post’s up. Essentially…it doesn’t matter to me with books–whether it’s standalone or part of a series is not a conscious factor for me (though I’m sure there’s more weight given to continue with books in a series than to try something new, especially if I come in late and there are multiple books presently unread for a series I’ve started into).

  16. I love both, but I’m not a fan of James Patterson-esque series, for example. If it’s a series, I want it to be a personal story.
