Places I find Books....

September 8, 2010


Recently a question was posted on Twitter asking people where they found books to read. For some reason the question stayed with me. So, I thought that I would share with you guys some of the places I go to when looking for books to read.

1. Bookstores
I'm sure this one goes without saying. I can't count the number of times I found books when browsing through. My local B&N has stands holding books and I usually find a few gems there.

2. Magazines
People magazine is my biggest source in this category. Every week they review a few books and it's one the reasons I love the magazine. I have found sooo many books there that I read and even had to start making a list.

3. Libraries
Another obvious pick. Again, you'd be amazed what you find when you just walk through the shelves and really look at the books. I also found lots of possibilities while I volunteered there.

4. Friends/Word of Mouth
This is such a good source! You often find out things about books you normally wouldn't.

5. Websites & Book Blogs
Whenever I go to bn.com or Amazon I always take a peek at the other books people bought when they bought one I was interested in. You'd be amazed what you uncover. Also, book blogs are GREAT for finding books. There are so many to look at and cover every book genre there is. I have spent many an afternoon browsing different websites and walked away with a list of books I was ready to read.

Well, I hope this has been informative for you. Find lots of good books and enjoy! I'd love to hear some the places you find books to read!

I think my biggest source is book blogs. I keep reading about fabulous books & then I have to go out & get them.

Lately I've found goodreads a great source. I'm always checking out what is on everyone else's shelves :)

Thank you for telling me where you go! I discovered book blogs about a year ago, and I'm always amazed with how many books I walk away wanting to read!
