In Search of a Good Book.
Posted by tricia linden
I think we can all agree that the internet has changed the way we shop. No longer are we required to hop in our cars and cruise down to the local mall for the perfect shop for the perfect birthday or holiday gift, clothing item, household gadget, or good book. Now we only have to hop onto the internet and find any thing we want, and a whole lot we don’t. It’s all there for the on-line surfing.
I can still remember when hardly anyone shopped on-line. It was too new and not to be trusted. Now, with a few click-clicks here and a few click-clicks there and the release of some valuable personal financial information, you can have your heart’s desire delivered directly to your front door. I should know, my front door has been very busy lately.
But remember the days when we would go to the library or to our local bookstore to find our next great book to read? Or we’d get a book passed on to us by a trusted friend. Well, that brings me to today’s question. Since I’m an avid reader as well as an author, I’m really interested to hear: How do you find the books you want to read? It is on Goodreads, via Amazon recommendations, the latest and greatest internet sensation, what your friends are reading or have read and had now passed on to you? Where, oh where do you find the next good read? Or even more to the point – - -
What are you reading now and how did it come into your hot little hands?
I’ll begin by sharing my answer. I’m currently reading on my Kindle The Minstrel Boy by Laura Vosika, book two of The Blue Bells of Scotland series. I found it by reading the first book of the series and liking it enough to want to read the second. I found the first book through a recommendation I saw on the internet, but I can’t remember where or when, but it sounded interesting enough to give it a try. I think it may have been on sale on Kindle for .99 cents and that was enough reason to give it a try.
So, if you would be so kind, take a moment and let me know how you find the books you want to read. As a show of thanks, I’ll be giving away free copies of my first book, Return In Time, through a random selection from the comments section. I already appreciate your assistance and participation, so blessings and good wishes to you all.
Hope to hear from you all soon. And Enjoy Always, T
