I’ve written over the years about not being a fan of book recommendations. It’s one thing for me to write about what I think about one, but rarely will I tell someone, “You should read this.” My thought process has always been that I have no idea what anyone else should be reading. Heck, I can barely decide for myself sometimes.
But sometimes it’s flipped. Though generally not into someone telling me what I should be reading, there are times when I specifically ask for recommendations. I can tell you (as expected) my experience when reading these is hit or miss.
But how do you go about it? You like recommendations? You don’t? You give them? Tell me, tell me.
