I’m currently reading a Sci-Fi Romance called Paradise 21 by Aubrie Dionne. It occurred to me today that I can’t remember the last Science Fiction book I read. I love watching Sci-Fi TV shows and movies, but I tend to read more mystery, fantasy and paranormal books. Since many books blur the lines between genres I don’t tend to pay a lot of attention on what genre a book is. In fact, my book buying habits are often not about the book at all.
Many of my recent book choices have come from authors I interact with online. In some cases I knew nothing about the book I decided to read. I purchase books to support authors who take the time to connect with others through social media. As a result I’ve read some amazing books in genres I may have missed out on if not for the author’s efforts to connect with their readers.
Has social media influenced your book buying habits? How do you choose what book to read?
