This week's question...
Do other people influence what you choose to read? When a family member recommends something, or a friend says they hated a book you were planning to read … does it affect your reading choices?
If it sounds like a book I'd like, I would add it to my wishlist but I wouldn't stop whatever I'm reading to read it. With reviews and blog tours, I don't often get to recommended books for awhile. However, I definitely add them to my list.
If they say they hate a book I'm planning to read, it doesn't effect my reading. I'll still read it. (Actually, I'm more likely to read a book that people are bashing just to see what the fuss is. LOL)
Reading is a very subjective thing - what's the saying? "One man's trash is another's treasure" or something like that. One person might love a book, while I hate it or vice versa. So, no, it will not stop me from reading something if it's on my list.
