This tag does what it says on the tin!
Thank you to Deanna at a novel glimpse for tagging me 🙂 It’s only taken my two months to respond. Sorry!
How do you find out about new books to read?
Mostly through blogging! I usually choose books based on the recommendations of other bloggers. I have become a little skeptical of books which receive a lot of hype so I tend to wait until I see a range of reviews before picking those books up. I add most books to my TBR on a Wednesday thank to WWW Wednesday, a weekly book meme hosted by Sam over at Taking On A World of Words. Please join in!
How has your taste in books changed since you got older?
I don’t think it’s changed much! Early favourite authors included Roald Dahl and Enid Blyton. I remember when I was about twelve working my way through all the books by Diana Wynn Jones our school library had (about 20 I think) and loving them all. Howl’s Moving Castle is still one of my favourite books. I also started reading Terry Pratchett when I was about the same age (Truckers, Diggers and Wings, and Only You Can Save Mankind before the Discworld). However, while sci-fi and fantasy has always been my “thing”, I also remember enjoying detective stories and mysteries like The Three Investigators and Nancy Drew.
How often do you buy books?
Not as often as you might think. I use my library a lot; mostly because we ran out of shelf space for books a long time ago. Maybe, on average, once a month? I tend to buy quite a few at a time rather than one a week 🙂
On this topic, I found this cartoon the other day and it made me think of lots of the lovely bloggers I follow, so I’ll share it here…
