Sharing a Love of Books

Join me as I discuss (often ignored) joys of reading!

One of my favorite things about reading a good book? Telling other people about it! There’s nothing better than chatting up your favorite read (or listen) with others. I’ve heaped praises upon praises for Andy Weir’s The Martian; it’s one of the few books I’ve loved that Scott has as well. It’s one of my go-to recommendations right now because the protagonist is instantly likable, the writing is engaging (even if the topic seems beyond dull, like nitrogen levels), and the stakes are literally life-and-death.

Maybe it’s just me, but there’s something pretty awesome about sharing a book you enjoyed and having that person love it, too. Social media opens up more avenues for bibliophiles to connect with each other and discover new favorites. I recently chatted with a new Instagram friend about Between the World and Me and Missoula. We talked uncomfortable reads and shared favorite Krakauer books, as well as books the other hadn’t encountered yet.

Call me crazy, but being able to share the literary love is a wonderful pay-it-forward joy of reading experience that I’ll always appreciate.

Thanks for reading! What are ways you share your love of reading?

    I absolutely love making book recommendations. It’s so fun to dig through the books I’ve read — and books I’ve heard about — to try and find a suggestion that will be perfect for someone. It’s especially great when one lands and then you can suggest other books like it.

      I’m the same way! I enjoy going through Goodreads and other lists I’ve curated to recommend a few options. I like to throw in an unexpected one, too (with the caveat that it is a bit of a Hail Mary), just in case the reader wants to explore outside of their comfort zone.

    Sharing favorites and recommending reads to others has been one of my favorite things about joining the book blogging world! I so rarely recommend books (or get recommendations) in real life, and I love that there are so many wonderful (nerdy) people online who can’t wait to hear me gush about my latest favorite. Perhaps “can’t wait” is a strong term, but I think we really are united by the thrill we get hearing others talk about great books. 🙂
