An interesting discussion over at Mobile Read discussing the influence of literary awards have on reading behavior has me wondering the same thing about sf/f readers in particular:
Q: Do literary awards affect your reading choices?
For me, I’d say no. I have a hit-and-miss track record with award winning novels and stories. Thus I tend to just read whatever suits my appetite, which may or may not be an award winner. That said, I do have a super-secret desire to read through all the Hugo/Nebula winning pieces of short fiction.
How about you?
