I love to read but I hate picking what to read next. When a new book by one of my favorite authors comes out, it's a no-brainer that I will devour it, usually within a day or two. Then I'm back to square one. What next?
While there are ranking lists based popularity and critical response, I usually don't find that these align with my tastes. I have taken to social media for guidance from people I know. This method works for me as it doesn't limit the question to recent publications and it allows me to ask additional questions of the recommender to figure out if I will also like the book.
Most recently, a friend recommended "The Sound of Things Falling" which was an excellent book and one I most certainly would not have found on my own. How do you select your next book? Do you have any recommendations for me?
