Series or Stand Alone Book?
Which do you prefer to read? A book in a series or a stand alone book?
I must admit how much I loved Jan Karon's Mitford Series. I embraced the characters and couldn't wait to dive back into Mitford and into the lives of the people (yes, I felt they were real people not just characters). I also enjoyed Janet Evanovich's over-the-top mystery series with Stephanie Plum. No, I haven't gotten hooked on reading Harry Potter's adventures, but I know readers could hardly stand to wait for the next book. Joselyn Vaughn's sweet romance stories and W S Gager's noir mystery series with Mitch Malone keep me coming back for more too.
I enjoy a good book not in a series too. The Help and the Kite Runner are stand alone books. The story is told and wrapped up in the ending. I was satisfied.
To be fair, I must cast my vote since I am asking you, dear readers, to vote for one or the other. But I don't want to prejudice the vote, so I will hold my vote until the results are in next week.
Please vote in the poll at the right side of the page and leave a comment. You may want to share with us what book(s) persuaded you to vote this way.
