When it comes to picking up a new book, do you go for reviews first, or would you rather take the matter in your own hands?
Usually, I do not go for reviews because I truly believe they’re nothing more than spoilers. Besides, I recall times when after going through the review I would have a shocking experience face-to-face with reality, so to speak. Nowadays, the most I can do about carefully picking up a new reading is check out the writer’s bio and decide from there on. Or, in some cases, I decide to start reading a new book when a close friend recommends it, because I know very well the type of readers they are, just like they know me, thus, no exhaustive review in advance.
Up to present day, this technique has never failed me.
Have you got any tips and tricks for discovering the perfect new reading on your list?
