It's a very comforting knowledge to me that there still exist delightful books by wonderful authors that I haven't as yet read...! :-)
While anticipating a good book is part of the fun in the reading process for me, but I don't like the suspense of waiting for the next book in the series to be published ...as I prefer the joy and comfort of knowing that there are at least some new books by my favourite authors available for me to read them whenever I wish to...! :-)
For this reason, I often tend to 'save' books.
Though in my opinion, it would be more accurate to say that I 'savour' books...!
That is, whenever I feel that a certain series is becoming one of my favourites, I stop reading when there are still few books left in that series ...and keep them to be enjoyed later as a special treat ...but not until new books are added in that series...! :-)
Another advantage is, that by keeping the books in reserve like this, it makes it easier for me to maintain my composure when one of my favourite authors contemplates the retirement of that particular series.
Moreover, whenever an author adds yet another new book to one of my favourite series, my pleasure is immense...
...and the longer my 'books-to-read' list grows, the happier I get...! :-)
