Are your book choices influenced by friends and family? Do their recommendations carry weight for you? Or do you choose your books solely by what you want to read?My book choices aren't really influenced by anything except my own interests, both personal and professional. My husband will occaisonally suggest a science fiction title that I'll read, and sometimes even enjoy, but for the most part my family's tastes are very different from mine and I tend to be a more self-directed reader rather than one who relies on others' suggestions.
