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.
