A new splurge

Over the last few days I've taken steps to replenish the TBR pile, ordering the following:

Julia Keller - A Killing  in the Hills

Helgason Hallgrimur - The Hitman's Guide to Housecleaning

Nick Quantrill - Broken Dreams

Paul Johnston - The Silver Stain

Joseph Kanon - The Good German

Edward Wilson - The Darkling Spy

Victor Gischler - Go Go Girls of the Apocalypse

Ben Pastor - Liar Moon

Roger Smith - Wake Up Dead

C.H.B. Kitchin  - Crime at Christmas

Christa Faust - Money Shot

Darragh McManus - Even Flow

Of course, there's still stuff on the existing TBR, including the books backing up on the Kindle.  And I still have to order my Liverpool reads.  I've also ordered about the same number of non-fiction books.  It's good to have choice, right?  The plan is to work my way through this lot between now and the New Year.

Do you finish every book you start? I only finish about 30%.

I don't finish every book I start, but probably over 90%. I try to buy books that I think I will like. There is experimenting going on, and a very large chunk of the books I've read over the past three years are by new-to-me authors, but I do a bit of research before parting with cash. And I buy nearly all the books I read, rather than lend from a library.

Rob - That's a very nice lot you've got there. I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of them. And I completely agree with you about doing research before purchasing a book. I'm almost always more likely to do some 'background checking' before buying a book than I am before borrowing one.
