Have you ever felt pressured to read something because ‘everyone else’ was reading it? Have you ever given in and read the book(s) in question or do you resist? If you are a reviewer, etc, do you feel it’s your duty to keep up on current trends?
No. I’ve never liked to read what “everyone else” reads, and I am way too busy to start now. These days all the books in my TBR pile are personal recommendations OR mothering/wif-ing/teaching, and I am sooo far behind, it isn’t even funny. I could use a year on a deserted island to catch up. Seriously. Ok, maybe six months if it is truly deserted.
I do review books, but I get to pick which ones, and I do them as they come in. Crafts and cooking, ya’ll, all over here.
