Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read focused on helping bloggers connect with their readers (and other bloggers) and gain followers.
This week’s question is:
Before blogging, how would you find out about new books?
I honestly can barely remember! It certainly wasn’t as convenient as finding books through the recommendations of fellow book bloggers, though–that’s for sure.
I spent a lot of time browsing the bookshelves at my local library and every store I went to (and I was guilty of taking pictures of ones I was interested in on my phone and looking up reviews of them later), and while that’s a process, it’s one I still really enjoy. There was a lot of judging-books-by-their-covers going on, and there were a few books that I remember looking at and putting down that I’ve since read and enjoyed. I have book blogging to thank for that! I’ve read books that I probably would never have picked up in the library or at a bookstore, and that has completely changed my reading life.
