Collections

btt button

Do you prefer to read collections that are all of works by the same author? Or collections by different writers? Consistency or variety?

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

  1. I am a variety girl as far as collections go. I love reading different authors take on a common theme.

  2. I’m a variety girl, too. =) See my fill answer here: http://the-book-rogue.de/btt-28/

  3. It’s a hard call. I have enjoyed both, but I think I consistently enjoy more of the stories in collections of stories by the same author. Most recently that applied to Maureen McHugh’s After the Apocalypse.

    No post on this one, because my answer is so short.🙂 Hope you all stop by and say hi sometime anyway.

  4. I clicked on the link for suggestions, but didn’t see a place to leave a a comment there – are comments closed on that one? Anyway, Just this morning I read a review from a blog friend about a book that sounded interesting but that I’d had no desire to read because my encounter with it in high school left me wanting nothing to do with it. That got me to wondering how many times we were “inoculated” against certain books by our encounters with them in school and whether that was due to how they were taught or our own immaturity. I’d love to hear others’ thoughts on this.
