Tidligere i uken ba vi deg om å dele dine tips og triks for å finne nye bøker å nyte. Nå er vi tilbake med tips som strekker seg fra den gamle skolen til det digitale.
SJ fremhever flere av de mest populære nettbaserte verktøyene for å finne nye bøker:
Goodreads.com is quick and easy. Yournextread.com is fun and helps a lot. But I gotta be honest, Amazon’s suggestions are probably the most useful to me.
TheFu foreslår å sjekke ut prisbelønte lister og en ganske fin måte å velge en god Sci-Fi bok på:
For scifi, see Hugo winning books. Life is too short to read bad books. Sometimes that leads to an author with an entire series of books to enjoy. I really enjoy some of the scifi from the 40s and 50s. Wells stuff is always timeless too (and free). I’m less happy with Nebula winners–-different type of writers and not my personal taste.
I also enjoy reading the books that were made into movies (usually bad movies). Someone though that the book was great enough to blow $50M-$300M on it. Sphere really was a great book, but please ignore the movie.
Vi vil andre stemme for å lese Sphere og unngå filmen.
Mens mange av våre lesere stolte på digitale anbefalinger, tok flere en tydelig analog tilnærming. JSilvers skriver:
When it comes to books, I am a member of the Lead Pencil society – physical books preferred.
I peruse the contents of Bookmarks magazine to compose a list of BooksToRead, The list is hand written on 3×5 cards and I keep it in my purse. I add to this list with comments from my various book clubs.
Cruising the New Books aisles of the various libraries within 20 miles is my main recreation. I pick books matching my lists and other appealing titles, based on the inside blurbs. I also troll the local independent book stores, and Barnes&Noble. I am fortunate to live in the Phoenix area which allows me to checkout books from the libraries of several adjacent towns, and has several independent book stores selling new and used books.
I end up with a pile of books on my table, sorted by due date, then by contents, so I don’t read two books of the same kind sequentially. Books are added at the bottom and read from the top. I will resort the pile, just so long as I don’t keep a book past its due date. Of course, reading turns up a few duds; I give myself permission not to continue reading them.
Thanks for the opportunity to share.
Å gi seg selv tillatelse til ikke å fullføre en dårlig bok er en viktig litterær ferdighet til utvikling. Livet er for kort og gode bøker er for store til å kaste bort tid på en dårlig bok, sikkert.
