Here are some very interesting posts on social reading and hype.
- Social Reading from Something More
- The Hype Machine from The Misadventures of Super Librarian
- Same New, Same New from Romance Around the Corner
Blogging and social media have really changed the reading landscape, and I’m not sure it’s for the better. When blogs about books first started gaining traction, it was wonderful. Ways to hear about new books from people who had as crazy a reading habit as I. Now, I feel like blogs are one big echo chamber for various authors. It’s turning me into one of those curmudgeons who avoids hyped books just because of the hype. But these posts all say it better than I. Now, back to my TBR pile.
