The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Topic Run Dates: September 24th – 30th, 2021
Are you more willing to read traditionally published books than self-published (indie) books? Or do you not have a preference?(submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)
The simple answer is no.
I typically choose my next novel based on the synopsis, so, for me, it does not matter who or what company published it. There is the initial stigma that self-published novels usually contain more errors (gramatical, sentence structure, etc.) since it can sometimes be seen by less sets of eyes before publishing. However, I have not found this to be the case as I have read some ARCs and some previously published novels that were not perfect that came from larger publishing houses and some that came from self-published authors. Therefore, there is no real difference between the two in terms of accuracy. In content, the stories have been both great and just okay on both ends of the spectrum, so, again, I rarely see a glaring difference between the two types of publication.
Pretty much, in summary, I will read anything and everything!
How about you? What do you have a preference?
