Welcome to Follow Friday! Today’s question is…

Q. Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? 

Not really! Back in high school, when I read romance novels, I had a couple of people — we’d swap books, chat about how hot the hero was, and so on. But, since I started reading young adult novels and urban fantasy/fantasy, no adults I know IRL reads what I read. Now, my students and I do talk about books and, no, they’re not always the ones I assign! Every year, there’s a handful who love books as much as I do and like to talk about them, too. Plus, we started using GoodReads this year, which has really promoted book discussions (makes me very happy!).

But that’s one of the main reasons I started this blog, so I’d have someone to rave about books with!

  1. I’m really surprised how many bloggers don’t have friends “in real life” to chat about books with! But, I guess that’s why blogs are so handy, then, right??

    That’s so exciting that you’re students are so excited about reading. How awesome is it that they’re using GoodReads? I wish I had known about that in school! lol

    I’m a new follower! 🙂

  2. Hopping through. I’ve gotten my family to read some YA books, but I really don’t have anyone who is as into it as I am.
