Previously known as Monday's Question of the Day, Books For Thought is a feature where I post a book-related question up for discussion. I am open to all opinions and enjoy reading diverse comments from my lovely followers. I look forward to picking your minds!
Have a question idea? Share it here and I'll feature your blog in this post.
How do you choose books at the store/library? Do you ask for opinions from staff? Go by covers?
(Question credit goes to: Laura from The Zealous Reader)
My Response: I love this question Laura! I usually take my sweet time when I am strolling through a bookstore. Due to the fact that most of the time I know what I am looking for, I never ask the staff for recommendations. Is it shallow to think I know more than they do in the book department? I know, I know I'm a meanie. Now as for the bloggers and bookworms who work in bookstores, they would make the ideal employees for sure.
On other occasions when I am diddle daddling, I admire the pretty covers while I familiarize myself with their summaries. Once in awhile I find a book that I never heard of and leave the store feeling happy and accomplished. Honestly speaking, it's been so long since I actually shopped in a bookstore! Amazon is my friend. Plus, I never go to libraries, I hate the one in my neighborhood. Does anybody else not go to the library or am I the only weirdo? I am very curious to know everyone else's shopping tactics though!
What are your bookish thoughts?
