Choosing a Book to Read

Mar 6, 2008
A book is an alcove of treasure, and you just need to dive in and get the pearls. But, the choice to make of which book to select is important. As we all know, reading is a great hobby, and also contributive towards our personal growth. But today, with the onslaught of thousands of authors and millions of books, it is quite perplexing at times to know which book to read.

In our lives, we come across people, maybe neighbors, colleagues and friends or relatives, who are avid readers. Some may even be writers. It is a good idea to discuss and inquire, what kind of books are good, or who are the authors that are famous, which are best selling books, and so on. It is important to know what type of books you personally prefer to read, for example, mystery or romance. Based on your preferences, you could get the right kind of information, from a circle of people and friends.

Personally, I am a member of a library, where there are hundreds of good books available. But even that sometimes puts us in a crux as to which book is good to read. At such time, the librarian is a great help, as they are trained to know books well and in detail. Based on what type of book I want to read, they can be helpful in directing me to the section where that book can be found.

It is important to read the back of the book where the concise story is given. I recommend that if you have a library in your vicinity or office, become a member. If that is not possible, then log onto the Internet and surf some web sites. You may come across some valuable information that might help you. If you are looking for best selling authors and their names, look at the entire list they have to offer, and maybe you can choose one from that list.

In certain towns and cities, you will find a couple of private book clubs, started by people who share a common interest, READING! It is beneficial to be a part of it, as you could actually end up saving some money. Every month they buy a book, pass it around, and then once a month, have a little informal tea party and discuss the book. This is a very social and informative gathering. So, you don't end up buying bad books. Besides, collecting books at home can cause a big space problem.

I hope what I have shared with you will help you in the future whenever you feel stumped and don't know where to find the right kind of book. But when you do find your dream book, out of the millions, think of me!
