Booking Through Thursday – Influence

Do other people influence what you choose to read? When a family member recommends something, or a friend says they hated a book you were planning to read … does it affect your reading choices? – BTT

Yes, and it does not always happen very often because I read more than most of the people I know. I do take recommendations easily. As for the other end of the spectrum, I consider it, but I always wonder about the books (or movies) we do like and disagree on. I am more open minded about certain items than friends and perhaps they are about others that I am not keen on either. If I plan on reading a book, I usually stick to it unless a lot of people say it is bad.

How about you?

    Recommendations from other book bloggers are welcome, especially if I already think the book seems interesting.

    If I do not like a book, no matter what people say, I will probably not read it. 🙂 Perhaps I miss out on a few things, who knows?

    kind regards,

      Hi Bettina! Well, life is short so we can’t read them all no matter how good they are. I do try to read varied things, but there are some books and authors I don’t even bother with anymore. Thanks!
