This week’s F&F:
Before blogging (dark times people!) how would you find out about new books or did you?
Dark days indeed!! Finding out about new books usually entailed walking around B&N for hours, reading synopses, having a coffee, reading more synopses, taking a nap in one of their big cushy chairs, reading more synopses, and then saying, “The heck with it! I’ll just get this one.” Of course, I had no idea if it was even going to be a good book or not.
Then came Goodreads and smart phones! That gave me a real advantage. Then came blogs!! The ultimate insight. Now, I feel informed when I purchase a book. It is always a gamble because everyone’s tastes are different, but I feel a little more secure in my purchases. Of course, I get most of my books free through Netgalley these days. Those are still a gamble, but I don’t feel bad if they suck because I didn’t pay for them. 🙂
