Giving Book Recommendations

I need to vent.

Don’t ask me to give you a book recommendation unless…

  • you respect my opinion
  • you understand that I’m human too
  • you go in with an open mind

Otherwise, forget it.

In simpler terms: don’t disrespect, distrust, and disregard.

Venting complete.

  1. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and no one’s opinion is wrong. With that being said, if someone gives you a book recommendation and you don’t like it, then oh well. I agree, you should at least go in with an open mind.

      1. My friends are the same way. They just don’t enjoy reading so they always think it’s funny when I tell them I’m reading one book and then the following day I’m on a different book.

  2. My biggest frustration with book recommendation is when someone says, “Hey, you read a lot. What should I read?” without giving me ANY glimpse into what kinds of things they like to read. And then they either never read my recommendation or they dislike it. So frustrating!
