Well, I can't really vote in the poll because I have no clue who or what it is about but I never go to the movies anyway, I pay dearly for my dish with all the channels so I patiently wait for it to arrive on HBO or the like.

Lately, when checking this board, I find I can't relate anything anyone is reading because I've never heard of them, so tell me, how does everyone here find the authors they are reading? How do you just know you're going to like a particular author if you know nothing of his or her work? I go to a bookstore or library and hardly know where to begin because all I know are the "safe" authors due to their well known success. Is there a website that critiques books and authors that one can peruse to "bone up" on what's good and know what to obtain on ones next trip to Borders???
