Books from Before I Joined…
Before I discovered the beauty of Goodreads, I was an aimless reader. I didn’t know what was popular, or cool. I just saw a pretty cover and I picked it up. I read books simply because I wanted to, or because I was personally recommended them. I read books for the pure joy of reading.
And then, I discovered all the bookish things that exist on the internet, and everything changed. In some way it was for the better: A whole new world of reading opened up to me. My TBR grew overnight and I discovered books I never knew. In other ways, it was for the worse: I now tend to mostly read over hyped books and have developed a serious book buying problem. I also feel the pressure to read certain thing and always stay on top of the popular books that everyone is talking about.
So, this week, we are gonna take a step back let’s look back at the gems I discovered long before I knew that the internet could be so bookish.
