A Musing ~ Book Talk ~ 10/29/12

Each week Miz B at Should Be Reading asks a bookish question to muse over.

Q. "Do you have people online that you often discuss the books you read with? Not just book groups, but individual readers who share the same taste in books? If so, what do you like best about this? If not, do you wish you did?"

There are certain blogs that I follow whose owners have the same tastes in books as I do and we end up reading the same books at times.  I like to read their reviews after I've written my own to see how they compare.  I also enjoy getting new ideas for books to add to my wishlist and TBR pile.

I'm also friends on with several people who read the same genres and books that I do.  We comment on each other's updates and compare notes along the way.

I enjoy the sense of community that it brings as I don't really have anyone IRL to talk books with.

Musing along,


  1. I like your post today, and I agree with you, I leave comments sometimes about a book I've read on their reviews, but I don't know if that is the same as a discussion.

  2. I enjoy the "conversations" fueled by bloggers sharing their thoughts on books. That works for me!


  3. I have had blogger 'conversations' but not one on one discussions with rare exception.

  4. I agree about getting ideas for your TBR pile. If you share a view the same opinions on a book you get curious about their books you have not read yet. I like browsing other peoples shelves.

  5. NIce answer and it is similar to mine.


I love reading your comments! Unfortunately, due to spammers, I now have to moderate comments.
