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?

Let me know what you think by commenting below!

  1. I certainly would. It doesn't matter how old a book is as long as it's well written and interesting.
