Book Blogger Hop - 2/21 - 2/27

Question of the Week:
What is your go-to recommendation for someone who doesn’t read often? (submitted by Amanda @ Give Me Coffee and Books)

My Answer:

I ask what they are interested in and suggest something in that genre.

If they don't choose anything, I suggest THE THIRTEENTH TALE and/or SHADOW OF THE WIND.

Those two should get them hooked on reading.

    1. Yes....LOVED them both.

      Thanks for commenting, Marg.

  2. Oh nice! Those are new to me ones. It's hard when you don't know what the person likes genre wise! As I said in my post, I struggled to find something for my niece every year. I don't think she's quite a reader yet.

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. It is difficult to find something for someone else.

      I hope your niece gets into the wonderful world of reading like all of us soon. :)

      Thanks for your commenting, Jessica.

  3. I try to match something to their interests as well.

  4. I loved The Thirteenth Tale. I haven't yet read Shadow of the Wind, although I've heard great things about it. Great choices, Elizabeth.

    I really have to know more about a person's interests and taste before making a recommendation. There are so many variables to take into account. Haha

    Have a great weekend!

    1. I agree about knowing more about the person.

      LOVED Shadow of the Wind...I actually HAD to go to Barcelona after reading the book to find all the places mentioned in the book.

      Thanks for your comment, Literary Feline.

  5. Yeah, like everyone else has already said, I'd need to know what sort of genres the person enjoys first before I would recommend anything. If they liked mysteries or the supernatural, I'd be able to recommend lots of different sub-genres and books. ;-)
    I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, Elizabeth.

    1. Exactly...if you knew what someone liked, many books would come to mind.

      Thanks for your comment, Flora.
