Feature/Follow Friday #2

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

This is a meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee, it's a great why to find new blogs and get new followers! So make sure to check out their blogs and this weeks Featured Bloggers!


This Weeks Question:

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

So mainly I would just spend a couple hours once a month on Barnes and Noble, looking up my favorite authors to see when their next books came out and see the whole "costumers who bought this also looked at" list. Then I would also go through the upcoming YA and MG lists also on Barnes and Noble, back then I knew Goodreads existed but I didn't really know what it was...dark times indeed.


What about you!?

  1. I used to spend hours at the library just browsing to find something interesting. Thank goodness for book blogs because I was introduced to so many new genres, which has been the best part! New follower here and have a great weekend!

  3. Hopping through. I hung out at Barnes & Noble a lot pre-blogging. Still do. I was there yesterday and today, although I didn't buy anything.

    1. Can't beat a book store for book shopping(you know besides Amazon). =)

  4. Amazon, but the same process. And then Goodreads, which led to stalking blogs, which led to blogging ;)

  5. The only place I found new books before blogging was at the library. I don't know anyone that likes to read, so I never got any recommendations from anyone. And I didn't go online looking for books until I discovered book blog (oh what a happy day!)

    1. Awesome! Yeah unfortunately I don't have a very good library near by...it makes me sad.

  6. Indeed dark times! I used to have no clue about genres and what was coming out when, I just queued for Harry Potter and bought the rest whenever I saw something interesting in a bookstore! I also had no clue about Goodreads although it's such a help now! I'm a new GFC and Bloglovin' follower! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Yeah I know what you mean, I used to have no idea there was a difference between YA and MG or Fantasy and Sy-fy, it was basically all the same in my mind!

  7. I would also browse the bookstores to see what was available, especially my favorite authors.

    Have a great day,

  12. I used to spend a lot of time at Barnes and Noble too. It was so nice to be able to sit down with a pile of books and drink a huge cup of cafe mocha. I got most of my recommendations though from the local library. They were great about figuring out what you might like based on you're favorite author, or a book you really liked. New bloglovin' follower. Happy reading!

  13. LOL dark times indeed! I like your answer but as I actually wondered through library! I always did that and I do it now when I go to pick up some books for my mum. I just have to go around the shelves and check. The librarians are so used to it :) Great answer :)

  15. I never knew about Barnes and Noble as it's not big in the UK. It was always Waterstones or WH Smiths here.I'm a new bloglovin' follower. I love your background.
