I visit the library on a weekly (sometimes bi-weekly) basis and book stores at least once a month. I usually know what I’m looking for and other than directions, I don’t usually seek help or advice or even chat with anybody. However, the other week I ended up having a discussion with a bookseller about Karl Ove Knausgaard because I noticed his copy of My Struggle at the cash and I asked him what he thought and if I should read it. It was a fun conversation!
Since I believe a majority of us get book recommendations from bloggers or the media, I wondered whether you ever get book advice from booksellers or librarians. Or are you like me and already know what books you want whenever you visit libraries or book stores?
Thanks for your thoughts!
