Wednesday reading experience #9

Ask a stranger for a book recommendation and follow it. You never know what might happen. If you are too shy to approach a stranger, try someone you know but have never discussed books with, like a workmate or an in-law.


What happened? Did you read the recommended book, and how did you like it?

I hope I am better at listening to people´s recommendations within other areas, but I would never ask a stranger for a book recommendation. I sometimes ask people who share my literary interests however, and this has lead to great reading experiences.

I asked my ex ma-in-law for a book recommendation. She suggested "Will You Please Be Quiet, Please", a collection of Raymond Carver's short stories.
The tast before me is not just reading the stories, but actually first locating the book!
