It's time for Feature & Follow Friday number thirty-four !!!
Let's take a look at this week's question:
QUESTION: Before blogging (dark times people!) how would you find out about new books or did you?
ANSWER: I never was a big reader growing up (something I still regret to this day), and by the time I found reading entertaining, I was already swamped with schoolwork (first high school, then college). So I'd say that I got most of my reading materials from my school. Yes, there was always the infamous required reading I had to do for English. But I remember in elementary school, we used to get these book catalogs every month that we could order books from, and I'm pretty sure I ordered quite a few (but that was back when it was socially acceptable for me to read books with big fonts and lots of pictures). Once I got older and those catalogs stopped being given out to us, I relied on the book fair my school would hold towards the end of the school year. If I remember correctly, most if not all of the books on sale were on the summer reading list, but I remember how much I enjoyed reading through the little blurbs on the list to see which books caught my attention. And then the best part was going to the library, where the book fair was held every year, and finding the book that would consume me during the last few weeks of summer (because let's be honest, I was a huge procrastinator on my summer reading).
Well, that's all for this Friday, folks! Until next time! :D
