Share a book…Share a story!
Do you like a book that leaves you turning the last page only to find out the story has ended? One that keeps you up half the night because you cannot close the book for want of what happens next? I love these types of books! And I love sharing these stories and thoughts with friends and family.
My problem is finding that type of story that puts me on the edge of my seat. It seems to be hit or miss circumstances. However, I have started using www.GoodReads.com as a place to explore what’s new, what other people are reading and how they liked it. You can explore by genre, new releases, award winners or just type in the title or your favorite author.
www.LibraryThing is another website that offers guidance on what to read. Here you can find discussions on books of varying categories. Discover what is hot or what others are reading and what they think about the book or the author.
Sourcebooks may be a publishing company, yet their website can be helpful when looking for a book. You can find it at http://www.sourcebooks.com/book-club-favorites/. They do offer some great read-a-likes opportunities. They even have paired what to eat and drink while discussing some of your favorite books! Not bad when you are hosting a book discussion!
So what am I reading right now? The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Yes, it is a tear jerker. Yes, there are characters in it that you could really want to get to know. Have you read it yet? Let us know what you think of it! If you have not read it, then What ‘cha Reading?
