I write this knowing that I’ll almost certainly be writing a year end list or making a video, but as we approach the end of the year lots of publications are publishing their year end lists of books.
Do you ever look at these? I usually don’t. I can’t remember the last time I read a book during its original publication year, maybe I never have. As someone who almost exclusively buys from Half Price Books, brand new releases are usually hard to come by.
Sometimes it does make me feel like I have no idea what’s going on in the world of books. There are times when new releases trickle down to me and grab my attention. I’ve had my eye on a few recently, but I haven’t bought anything.
