This week’s musing asks…
• Do you read books that are part of a series?
• Do you collect all the books in the series before starting? What if the series is brand new, and the only book that’s been published so far is Book one? As subsequent books in the series are published, do you go back and re-read the preceding books?
I do read books that are part of a series. I don't tend to collect them all before starting, although if I really love the first one I will definitely rush to buy the rest of them if they're available. The Harry Potter series is the best example, of course, but also Stephen King's The Dark Tower series, as well as the Dragonlance series.
Sometimes, if it's been a really long while since I've read the previous book, I'll reread it before the next installment comes along, but it's not the usual for me.
