How do you discover
I usually find new stuff through recommendations from people especially Bill Gates or I just find something catchy at a store.
I tend to walk around book stores and look for interesting covers and, if the story appeals, I’ll check it out.
lead by random universal forces to something new
Recommendations from people and I try to give recommedations
This group, newspapers, and nonfiction authors often refer to other authors worth checking out.

Here, goodreads, and I use overdrive through my library and I just pick a genre and look for anything that catches my eye.
My library. When I request a book online they have suggestions of other books that are similar to the ones I request.
People magazine always has good suggestions
From this group, I learned about ‘Goodreads’ – it looks promising.
Also, I will take my dog on a long walk which allows me to browse 2 “My Little Neighborhood Libraries”
This is a great place to learn about new books, especially from new authors who don’t have the exposure but might have exactly what you’d like.
Well I let the book find me??
A lot of times I find them through recommendations on Amazon when looking up books. Also, Goodreads gives suggestions based on what I read. I also get them on here from other people.
I roam in used books market and visit book stalls to discover new books . This seems to me a spiritual journey.
New release section at the downtown library
I Google if you like specific author , for instance John Sanford, then you might like…
One day I was walking my dog and a cloud burst caught me in the open! I duct into a door way to wait it out and a door opened and a hand clamped my shoulder! I jumped and turned around and a gentleman said come in and get out of this cloud burst! I thanked him and stepped in to a wonderfully warm and cozy lived in home and first thing I noticed was lots of books and a desk with paper and pens! I was ushered to achair and offered a cup of coffee and my dog a treat! I thanked him and said I love books and read alot! The man Smiled and walked over to a shelf and got a hard back book out and went to his desk and signed the inside cover and handed it to me! This was a author and he gave me a First edition of Dune,Signed by him,Frank Herbert??? So I have always let the stories /books find me????
Mainly by book club selections, or receiving free review copies.

I honestly find a lot of books on pinterest and then look them up online
Here for one! Goodreads, ads pop up on my tablet too!!
Try indie authors like me, that suggest books like mine, Trapped: Autumn, give them a chance and spread the word… Get invested in the indie game, you might get surprised
The Internet – it is a constant source, way too many to obtain all of them! Also sometimes at bookstores.
Mostly on YouTube
YouTube. There’s always someone on there with an opinion on a book I’ve never heard of.
@Whitney, BookTubers are the babe of my TBR
Instagram… i follow publishers and other bookish people and of course the authors I love because the good ones will share what they’re reading to give kudos to their colleagues.

http://ebookbike.com/ free books.
Goodreads Bookstagrams Facebook groups
I have no idea! They might in fact be stalking me… I often feel ambushed by new books or authors. I do not go looking, or if I do it does not register as so with me. I just need to actively sort through the ones I somehow stumble upon. The challenge for me is not in the finding of a book to read. It is choosing one (or two or three) to read at a time.
Goodreads, instagram, the groups on Facebook ?
Browsing at the library
@Britany lol reminds me of a farm animal grazing,browzing
Browse bookstores weekly. Cruise Amazon
Instagram and reccomendations by friends
Just browsing a bookstore but not buying (borrowing from the library later.) Browsing the stacks in the library. That’s how I found some of my favorite books.
Reviews, meandering through bookstores, suggestions from friends, book club, suggestions from bookstore staff, etc.
What she said…
Amazon best books of the month lists. They’re typically great reads but these lists are so dangerous to my wallet.
Read synopses, check out book lists.
