Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Four commenters did not have movie fav that they rewatch. Jane Austen/Pride and Prejudice was mentioned by two; Musicals were mentioned by two (I like those too) and Christmas movies were mentioned by two. Rita mentioned Grease and Dirty Dancing - my daughter rewatches the first and my husband rewatches the latter. Sue likes to rewatch Dr. Strangelove and MASH while Janhvi likes to rewatch The Proposal.
The Winner from SBB #321 comments is: #3 CAROL L who can make a GC choice if international or book choice from the Updated (**Finally!) ARC/Review titles or (recently updated) Love and Christmas titles - all linked near the end of the post.
**NOTE: I did post an Updated ARC and Other books for Giveaways. I have to go back and list the titles -- someday.
Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.
My question this week: Would you read different books if you weren’t reading for review?? If you don't review books can you think of a reason you might read different books than you currently read?
I often think I am very blessed to get to pick and choose the review books that I like. I would certainly review more of my TBR shelves if I wasn't reviewing but I think the genre mix would remain about the same. I try to pick indie authors/smaller presses as well as well known authors and houses. I do try to pick an occasional review title to stretch my tastes and comfort zone once in a while... but I might do that with TBRs too. So I guess my real answer is "No, I wouldn't read different books."

Thanks to those who are sending in Questions. DON'T BE SHY! Surely everyone has a Q or two you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this Suggested Question Form. At the end of each month I draw from the suggestions I used during the month and that person will get a book choice or GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions. Thanks for sending in questions! The supply of questions is dwindling so share some if you think of any -- even if they are duplicates I'll weed through or try to modify.
Your turn to share. My question this week: Would you read different books if you weren’t reading for review?? If you don't review books can you think of a reason you might read different books than you currently read?

Open internationally and an international winner may get a smaller book or a $5.00 GC if I decide the mailing is too much.

No. i may sometimes reviewa book from an author or genre i'm new to but usually i try to review books in my favourites genres so i'm happy to read themReplyDelete
Oh this is a tough question. I read for both review and pleasure and i stick to what i like that is romance, YA and new adult. I would like to read different genres but not at the moment at least.ReplyDelete
I'd read anything, really. Reviewing or not.ReplyDelete
Congrats to Carol!
I will read a book if a friend recommends it and tells me I will love it.ReplyDelete
I read for pleasure and enjoyment so I don't tink I'd change the genre I readReplyDelete

My daughter recommends a lot of books I would not have read otherwise. Reviewing as nothing to do with my choices.ReplyDelete
I rarely get review books so I mostly read from my TBR pile, which is huge btw.ReplyDelete
But I do like to change things up from book to book. I only stay away from genres I dislike.
Every time I’m in a reading slump I consider switching genres and that’s the main reason I’d read different books.ReplyDelete
Congrats CAROL L!ReplyDelete
I read anything doesn't matter if I'm reviewing it or not. When reading the summary about the story and if it sounds interesting enough to me I will give it a try. By trying different authors or genres is how I find new genres to read or new authors to follow.
No. I sign up to read/review only books from genres I likeReplyDelete
I read mostly from authors I follow, recommendations, and genres I like. I also like to follow interesting blogs, (like yours, Martha) and find so many interesting book reviews.ReplyDelete
