Follow Friday

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer!  This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. 
This week’s question –

Before blogging (dark times people!) how would you find out about new books or did you? – A Great Read

Question provided by: The Pegster Reads
I would love to say that I found out from my local librarian but sadly, that just isn't so.  Although, you would be surprised at how many librarians are YA fans!  
Before blogging, I found out about new books through my local bookstore. I would hit the new book section!  Sometimes I would hear about something in the media but that was rare.  Usually only when a book was becoming a movie.  And in terms of YA, the book was already several years old before it became a movie!

  1. I love going to the bookstore! I can spend hours in there :)

  2. For me it was the library or the bookstore, and this was before e books even, so I needed to find a fresh author, I really had to do some research, but it was always worth it. There are times I do miss those days.

  3. I used to look in local book shops too, but I didn't get the chance to go into town very often when I was younger so I had to borrow a lot from the mobile library or from friends and family.
