  1. How do you decide what to read next?

    Yay! Hi Sarah Echo -- what a beautiful name! I love re-reading books too. It's funny how you can experience a book in a totally different way when you read it for the second time. <3 <3
  2. How do you decide what to read next?

    Hi Will! I love all of these points. I've never heard of Slightly Foxed -- will defo check it out. I'll also keep an eye on recommendations, conversations and the book challenges here. I like the idea of doing a challenge to help me to read more.
  3. How do you decide what to read next?

    Hey --- I know they're tricky questions (!!) but I'm so so happy you took time to answer! I love a good mooch. Do you have any favourite newspapers or reviewers? I love John Crace's "Digested Read" in The Guardian (it's also available as a podcast now). I like how you explore the world around the book, i.e. the cover, the blurb, the interview with the author etc. That's defo a good tip. Finally, I also love seeing what other people read (even if I don't share their tastes). It's great to get an insight into other people's bookshelves and learn what they enjoy reading. :)
  4. How do you decide what to read next?

    Thanks so much for this response. I also like finding things by wandering through my favourite bookshops (bookshop browsing is THE best way to spend time!). I guess I sometimes feel like I'm just seeing the same things in the bookshops or that things are too mainstream? I love your honesty in that you judge books by their covers (!), I have to admit that I do that too. I also love to genre-hop and keep some different genres on the go at once.
  5. Hey everyone, I love reading and mainly read classics --- I'm trying to make it through the Russians and have a strong interest in 20th century modernist fiction. As a result, I almost totally miss out on contemporary literature and, most of the time, don't have a clue what new stuff to read or where to find tips for great new contemporary fiction/non-fiction. - How do you discover new books to read? - How do you decide which books to read? - What are your most trusted sources for books? Thanks, Sarah
