I do like to read a lot, and I admit I am usually on the lookout for new books. I've been into mystery and thriller books and I recently read everything the library had to offer by Tess Gerritsen.
So yes, I am looking for new books to read. But it baffles me the kind of recommendations that people who know me quite well seem to make to me.
For example, somebody who knows me very well and everything I like was recommending an Indian writer to me who writes about her early life in India. I don't know, maybe it's great, but it does not on any level seem like the kind of book I would read. My father-in-law is always recommending these weird guy books that I would never read ever. Like by authors that if I have read a book by them, I hated it. (Philip Roth, Don DeLillo)
If you know me and you actually have a decent book to recommend to me, fine. But don't play up something you read that you like that is obviously something that wouldn't interest me.
