I am looking for a good book!
A -- knock your sox off, cry your face off, and not be able to move because your teeth hurt from biting down -- kind of book.
I have a read a few of these lately:
Memoir: The Face: Cartography of the Void
I want more and this got me thinking about how I personally find my books and wondering how other people find their books:
My go to methods:
1) Goodreads ... Kind of. I feel like I'm to lazy for Good Reads. You have to do some work, like searching and mostly I just want someone to tell me what to read because I'm already researching for my novels, being a teacher and a writer, and I'm just tired... Okay? Don't judge.
2) Suggestions from friends: I'm always asking what people are reading. Mostly complete strangers who would rather be reading than suggesting to me what to read but I don't care ya'll. I'm trying to find a good book.
3) Class ... Being in grad school means that I get to read lots of wonderful stuff that I wouldn't normally read because of my teachers.
4) Netflix and Movies ... When a book gets made into a movie or tv show, I usually try to read it first.
5) Book Stores ... Perhaps I am ancient but I still like wandering around book stores, flipping to the back of books in attempts to find one that I will love. My mom and I often bring ten back to the table and force ourselves to pick only 2 or 3. That is always impossibly hard and we end up making each other pick every single time. This is my favorite way to find books.
I feel like there are other ways that I'm missing, maybe? So how do you find good books? Do you have a magic method I haven't mentioned?
