Good morning, and welcome to another edition of Musing Mondays, hosted by Should Be Reading.
Where is your favorite place to find new books to read? Blogs? The library? Newspapers? Magazines? In the backs of other books? Suggestions from friends/family? Online bookstores? On the shelves of the local bookstores? (I don’t necessarily mean, ‘where do you find books to buy’ — I mean, ‘where do you discover new titles that you add to your to-be-read lists’?).
Wow! I like this one, since it offers a whole range of options. And I would probably say “all of the above.” As I blog, I make note of books that catch my eye. When I’m browsing the Amazon store, I might just click and buy based on the cover, the synopsis, and the author’s name. If I’ve read other books by an author, I will jump at the chance to discover a new one.
Bookstores…but not as often these days. But if I’ve received a coupon from Barnes & Noble, for example, I’ll check it out. Especially if a title that sounds/looks familiar, or an author I’ve loved is on the list.
Because I’m trying to curb my book buying (huge TBRs!), I’m more likely to just add books to my list. And then, sometimes, I’ll get my Amazon Vine newsletter and find one of those books offered. I like when that happens!
How about the rest of you? What draws you in and captures your book lust? Hope you’ll stop by and share.
