It’s time for another discussion post! I’ve seen a lot of people talking about how book blogging and BookTube have changed their reading habits. I think that I’m a completely different reader than I was at the beginning of the year, when I started this channel. So here are the ways that book blogging have changed the way I read!
Sea of Rust first drew my eye because it has one of the most stunning covers I've seen this year, and we've established here before that I am incredibly shallow when it comes to my books. I was delighted by the description -- it sounded so incredibly Asimovian and old-school sci-fi that I had to take a chance.
June has come to a close and July has just begun. It's time for Instagram Sundays, featuring the week's photos from my Bookstagram account.
So, I have a problem. When I like something, I’ll go completely overboard and love it to death. If I like a song, I’ll play it on repeat until I cannot stand to listen any longer (1997 was a tough year – to this day I cannot listen to ‘My Heart Will Go On’ because Little Justine just loved it so much). It turns out, I do the same thing with books.
Readers are picky people. We are loyal to our paperbacks, hardcovers, or e-books, and often will not buy a new book until it is in our preferred format. Then, of course, there are others who are ‘hybrid’ readers. Hybrid readers will happily read one book on their Kindle and the next in physical form. So what kind of reader are you?
