This week Booking Through Thursday asks the following:
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?
I do value the opinion of some people. Usually if it is something my daughter has read I’ll check it out, although there are some that I know aren’t for me. There are also some friends, who I know have similar tastes to me, that I listen to for book recommendations. Sometimes, even when one of these people says that they didn’t enjoy a particular book, I’ll read it if it’s one I wanted to read anyway.
