So many books to read….so little time! That’s a perpetual problem for even the most devoted of readers. If you are like me, your buying speed far exceeds your reading speed, and so even in my house, I have hundreds of books I have not yet read. Yet, each trip to the book store ends in at least one purchase. 

When there is so much choice, and so many good choices, how do you select your reading material? 

If you have a reading list, how did you come by it? Do you pick books to read from reviews, such as NY Times or Amazon? Do you listen to opinions of your family or friends? Or do you have a couple of trusted readers you rely on, or trusted websites? 

How do you decide that this particular book is worth your time, and not all those others?
