Have you read any good books lately?
So I’m wondering why I usually stand there like a deer in headlights and can’t think of a thing to answer.
Of course I’ve read good books lately. Many of them. I just can’t seem to bring anything specific to mind when the question is asked.
Many things go through my mind: what kind of books do I think they would like? what would be the best recommendation? with all the books I’ve read, which ones stand out most in my mind?
Maybe if I read fewer books, it would be easier to come up with one or two to recommend off hand. But I read LOTS of books. Soooo… here’s what I usually answer:
Have you heard of a website called goodreads?
If I can get my friends on goodreads, they can see everything I’ve read and even read my little reviews to find out what I think about them. PLUS, extra bonus, I can see what THEY have read as well (if they take the time to enter them), and then I can get book recommendations in return.
I LOVE goodreads. After the library, it’s my favorite book place.
So, if you want to know about the good books I have read lately, check out goodreads. (Yes, it’s a shameless plug. But it’s free, so why not?)
