I find that I am a bit of a publisher snob and I don't like it.
I have read books from smaller publishers and sometimes I like them. But lots of times I don't. I am not sure if I don't like them because of preconceived notions about smaller publishers or if they really aren't that great.
This is not to say that every book I read from one of the major publishers is amazing, but for some reason I find myself going back to those books that have a big name behind them.
When I am looking over egalleys, or catalogs for ordering I just really tend to stick to the big publishers.
So, do you find that who published a book is important to you? Or do you even look at who published a book?
Do you have a favorite smaller publisher? Or a wonderful recommendation from a smaller publisher or published independently? Let me know!
