This weeks question is...

Before blogging (dark times people!) how would you find out about new books or did you? - Suggested by A Great Read

We would hear about some books from word of mouth but not a lot of our friends were readers so the recommendations were few and far between. What we liked to do was to go to the bookstore and just randomly browse the shelves. With our Starbucks in hand, we would spend hours going up and down the rows until a book would speak to us. Each of us would buy at least six books, knowing nothing about them, and hope for the best. Some of the most enjoyable books we have read were found using this method. Once we discovered a book that we liked then we would buy any other books by that author.

How did you find out about new books?
That is our Feature and Follow Friday for this week! Comment down below if you're a new follower of ours with a link to your blog and we will make sure to follow you back. You can follow us via gfc, bloglovin, email, facebook and/or twitter.


  1. Mm.. now you're making me want a Green Tea Frappuccino at 10:30 at night!! lol That's what I would do, too. Pick up random books at bookstores that I thought were interesting and just pray that they were good haha.

  2. Before book blogging really was a dark time! I only read one genre pretty much and browsed at my library. Now I read so many more different things! New follower here. Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks for the follow. Already following you via GFC and bloglovin. :)

  3. Hopping through. I love getting stuff at the bookstore cafe. Would you go to Chapters/Indigo? I went to the coolest looking Chapters when I was in Edmonton. It was a gorgeous bookstore.

    1. Yes we would go to Chapters or Indigo. The Chapters that we go to is huge and we love browsing the shelves there but our Indigo has a nicer YA section. You would think that they would both be the same seing as how they are the same company.

  4. Yup, I would do that too! I found quite a lot of lovelies that way!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  5. Coffee and books is literally how I prefer to spend my saturdays now! Back in the day there was less coffee and more running around excitedly! I always feel bad for people who don't know how we can spend hours in a bookstore! I already seem to be following you everywhere! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Worth of mouth was all there was. My FF

  7. Mmm...Starbucks. I used to do that too. I'd pick out a stack of books at Borders or Barnes and Noble, get my coffee, and then try to read the first chapter in all the books I picked up. If I was interested, I got it, if it draged or didn't hold my interest, it went back to the shelf. I could spend the whole day at the bookstore. New Bloglovin' follower. Happy reading!
