The Tuesday Talks this week: Do you shop for specific books or are you a browser?
For me, it’s a mix of both. If I’m at a bookstore (I still miss you, Borders!) then I am definitely a browser. I love strolling around bookstores and discovering new titles. I also browse Amazon pretty frequently. When I travel, I’m 100% a browser. I like to pick up a small paperback to read on the plane and they are usually books I’ve never heard of. On my last trip I grabbed In the Blood by Lisa Unger. Super creepy, by the way!
That being said, I also shop for specific books. I look for books by my favorite authors for sure. Working in a library, I have access to a lot of titles, so I have to narrow it down somehow! I just started reading The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. After seeing this on numerous must-read and bestseller lists, I looked for it specifically.
Do you all browse or know what you want when you book shop?
