Musing about New Authors

“A book must be an ice-axe to break the seas frozen inside our soul.” Franz Kafka

What is your policy when it comes to new authors? Do you feel comfortable purchasing a book or do you prefer to borrow new authors from the library? How often do you 'try out' a new author?

I am very open to new authors. I like to explore new books and new genres. I do buy new authors very often. The blog world too is a big help in such matters. We already know a few authors from there when we go book buying. Even without that knowledge, I read through the back cover and buy.
