Booking Through Thursday – Friends

btt button

Do you have friends and family to share books with? Discuss them with? Does it matter to you?

(Personally, I almost can’t remember the last time I was able to really TALK about a book I’d read with someone else who’d read it, and haven’t really been able to since my best friend and I devoured the same books in high school. Thank God for the internet.)

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

_____________________________

I am lucky in that my whole family reads. We each have our own tastes, but sometimes we read the same stuff. My brother reads a lot of the same books as me because rather than choose what to read himself, he reads my blog and chooses books I’ve reviewed. I guess if your sister is a librarian, you might as well reap the rewards.

My friends are all readers as well, but that’s mostly because I’m a librarian and most of my friends are from the library. My BFF is not a librarian, but she reads also. I can’t think of anyone I hang out with who doesn’t read. I guess I’m surrounded by nerds… and I love it!

Regarding discussion, when I read a good book, I tend to discuss it with anyone who will listen. I also am in a book club so I discuss books there as well.

  1. I like your post, I love discussing books but the last time somebody wanted to talk to me about them i was afraid of sounding pretentious so i didn’t really get in to my favourites and ended up talking about harry potter!i think i still came across as a bit of a book snob while simultaneously seeming like a child!what kind of books do you like to read?
    oh and maybe take a look at this bantics.wordpress.com

  2. Like you, I have lots of people in my life (both family & friends) to discuss books with. Almost all my friends read (birds of a feather…) and we really enjoy talking about books — what we’ve liked and what we haven’t. The same goes for most of my online friends — it seems like nearly all the people I like to read about and spend time with are readers, too.
