Tuesday Thingers


Today's topic: Recommendations. Do you use LT's recommendations feature? Have you found any good books by using it? Do you use the anti-recommendations, or the "special sauce" recommendations? How do you find out about books you want to read?
My answer: I look at the Recommendations feature and I probably have researched things I've found on it, but nothing springs to mind. It's useful when it does tell me about new things, but half of the time it's either more books in series I've already started, or things that are popular that I'm not interested in reading. I think the "special sauce" recommendations are actually really good and I enjoy perusing them. As far as where I find books to read, I have my favorite authors, and all kinds of other resources. Browsing bookstores, newsletters, LT Early Reviewers, professional journals, etc. The list goes on!
