I was going to skip today, but after all the fun I’ve had in the past 2 days, I decided I couldn’t pass up this opportunity!
Today’s topic is networking in real life. I don’t do much real-life networking, do cool library stuff, or attend fun bookish events. But I do talk about books with my friends occasionally.
I remember last fall I was in a Shakespeare study group, and the “teacher” really liked YA books. Almost every week we would end up not talking about Shakespeare, and instead talking about more recent books. She introduced me to Divergent & Heist Society, among others.
At one point we were talking about how we’d find good books. Most of them would say stuff like “Recommended by a friend” or “Saw it at the library”, and then it was my turn and I talked about how I read book reviews online. I told them about my blog, and Goodreads, and ARC’s and all that cool stuff.
I know my story isn’t nearly as cool as some of the others you’re bound to encounter, but it’s what I’ve got to offer!
