Book List Abundance

I can’t resist a booklist. I was going to write a good booklist, but that wouldn’t be true. I will click on almost any booklist. I look at the list and then see how many great and recommended books I still haven’t read.

Once upon a time when I started my blog, I used to review every book I read. I don’t have time to do that anymore, but I indulge in Goodreads as often as I can to update what I’ve read- never as much as I would like, I really enjoy seeing what friends read too, it’s like a personal recommendation.

So tonight on this full moon night that I can’t resist staying up for, even though there may be cloud cover, I’m thinking about booklists and what informs our reading. Is this a Taurus thing? Comfort seeking?? I like to read books recommended by my friends, sometimes ‘friends I haven’t met that I read/listen to or watch’. Trusted sources, I love a new source though.

I don’t continue reading/listening or watching something that I don’t enjoy. There are a handful of authors/speakers or directors/actors/writers/bloggers that I will persist with. It’s almost sad that the list keeps getting shorter.  There is abundance now.

I’d love to hear how you decide to read a book? What are the telltale signs or a trusted source for you?
