Booking Through Thursday - Too Much Information?

If you'd like to join in, go here.

"Have you ever been put off an author’s books after reading a biography of them? Or the reverse - a biography has made you love an author more?"

Since I haven't necessarily read a biography on any authors I've read, I guess I really can't answer this Booking Through Thursday question of the week.  Of course, I'll read the backside of the book that has a snippet of the author or I may catch an interview on T.V., but that is about it.  Either way, I don't feel it influences to read or not to read their works.  **I do have one exception to this..  I recently learned that a girlfriend from high school has published two novels and is working on her third.  Well, of course, I have to read 'em!!  I'll be starting the first one tonight.

When I enjoy a book, I tend to look up other work by the same other and read those as well.  I also like to get recommendations from friends or other readers to broaden my range or dive into something that I wouldn't normally.

How about you?  Does learning or knowing more about an author make you want to read more or less work by an author?

Happy Reading!

LOL I don't even pay attention to the snippet on the book's back cover until AFTER I've begun the book! Thanks for sharing.
