Who or what influences your reading most?
For me this has really changed over the past several years. Before I began blogging it was all about going to the library or my local bookstore, and word of mouth. Let me tell you, I could spend hours looking at titles, book covers and the synopsis. Then I found twitter and goodreads, and that had a major impact because I could actually see and join in on discussions about books with people from all over the world. Fabulous!
For the first year or so after I began blogging those remained my biggest influences, but I’ve also added Netgalley, follower recommendations, author suggestions, surprise books from publishers, and of course other bloggers. I’ve built up a list of go to authors, and generally I read their books first when I either receive them as an ARC or pretty quickly after they have a new release. Lastly, there are several publicists who generously let me know about must read authors.
What about you? Who or what most influence your reading?
