Before blogging (dark times people!) how would you find out about new books or did you? - Suggested by A Great Read
First can I say how excited I am that I was this weeks pick?!!!! I literraly did a happy dance around the house. No shame, just living the life of a blogger we get excited over some crazy things. 

Well I guess my answer is pretty simple. I didn't have a lot of friends growing up that read so I didn't have anyone to recommend books to me. My mom and I would at least once a month drive the hour drive to the nearest bookstore and we would browse for hours! (Sorry we wasn't about to drive that long drive and stay 15 minutes we stayed pretty much ALL day.) I would look at the store employee's recommendation section to see their choices. For the most part though I would just grab a HUGE stack of books and take them to the sitting area and just read a little of each of them. If I had to force myself to put it down then I knew it was a keeper. These trips were some of my favorite memories growing up, and being able to share my love of reading with my mom has always been one of the greatest gifts.
 I still like to do this sometimes. Just going into a store and picking up a book you have never heard of. I feel like that's sometimes how you find some of your favorite books. There isn't any hype or bashing of the book, not many people know about it, it feels like your own precious find for just a little bit. Then of course after you have had your moment you recommend it to EVERYONE...blogger problems =)
What about you guys? Let me know how you use to find new books in the comments below =) If you are a new follower HI *Waves to you* make sure you let me know so I can follow you back =)
Happy Friday ya'll!!!
