I come across self-published (sp) books and will peruse them to see if any attract my interest. If it looks like something I don't want to read, I lay the book aside. If it's a book that captivates me, I read it. If it's a great book, it gets recommended. If I read the sp book but it turned out to be not so great, I don't recommend it. This is the same for mainstream books. They can pay an author a phat advance, he can be famous as JLo's fiancee, but if the story doesn't grab me, I don't feel obligated to read that person's book, regardless of how the book was published. Like someone else said, it's like finding the jewels. But this goes with all books because as readers we all value different kinds of storylines and writing styles. Hope this helps.
