Do you read books?

OK, that's a silly question. Let's try: Do you read speculative fiction books? How about comics and/or graphic novels?
What are some of your favorite resources for choosing what to buy or read next?

Inquiring minds want to know!

I use a mix of asking friends and using awards lists from previous years, and also "best 100" type reading lists from various sources. It's not unusual for my reading list for an entire year to consist of Hugo winners from the 1960s, for instance.

I have very little familiarity with current authors, though I'm trying to get better. Up until 2 years ago, I don't think I'd read anything written in the previous 10 years, and usually hadn't even heard of titles that had won awards in the last few years. I have been working on that a bit and in 2011 I actually read the majority of the Hugo nominees before the voting was finished. This also involved me reading titles from genres that I normally would not have touched, and while I can't say I gained a love of new genres, I did enjoy them more than I thought I would.
