New vs. Old Books - To Review or Not To Review

It seems like most book review sites tend to review new books, and being a new reviewer, I followed the trend.  However, this weekend I spent a few hours at a friend's house helping clean out their garage only to find myself shopping the pre-sale pile of books.  I walked away with a whole box.  A WHOLE BOX.  As if I didn't have enough to read and no time to do it, now I have another box full of books to read. 

What I'm contemplating is if I should review the books I picked up even though they aren't new.  If you were looking for a good read and paid attention to a book blogger, would you follow a recommendation even if the book was over a year or two years old?

One Little Book Blog Inspires Conversation!

Awesome! Author Emma Campion uses my review to further discuss her book, 'The King's Mistress', and her style of writing. What an honor to have inspired the topic of her blog!
