Do you prefer reading current books? Or older ones? Or outright old ones? (As in, yes, there’s a difference between a book from 10 years ago and, say, Charles Dickens or Plato.)
I like to read a variety of books from different time periods. I probably read more current books (by current I mean published in the last 10 years, not new releases) because I like to keep up with reading trends for my job, but I sprinkle in classics here and there. I will read the “latest” releases every once in a while if a publisher sends an interesting ARC to my library’s collection management department, but I don’t feel like it’s that important to read what everyone else is reading unless someone with similar taste in books recommends something (i.e. my mom recommending The Help). I seem to read a lot fewer galleys than a lot of book bloggers. I like to read books that have already been reviewed extensively in the literary press because I don’t like to waste my reading time on duds.
