Booking Through Thursday — Influences

btt button

Are your book choices influenced by friends and family? Do their recommendations carry weight for you? Or do you choose your books solely by what you want to read?

It’s a little of both. There’s part of me that likes to “discover” a new book or author myself, but there’s also part of me that realizes that this can be limiting sometimes. I’ve found that my weeks of participating in this meme and visiting other people’s blogs and various social networking sites for books has brought some new books and authors to my attention that I might not normally have found right away.

  1. There is something sort of magical about stumbling onto a new book or author without anyone guiding you there, but I definitely also agree that it can also be fun to make connections with people through books you mutually enjoy.
