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?
