Why I like reading your favorites.

I was thinking about this topic while I watched a video of someone’s favorite contemporaries.

Reason 1: I want to know if we have similar affinities.

It’s no secret I am a mom now and the time I had to call my own has been significantly reduced. So I am always looking out for the people who I follow via blog or vlog to tell me what they’ve been reading. The ‘favorites of a particular genre’ are my go-to  posts/videos when I’m looking for something new to read.

If we like the same book, even more so for the same reasons, I know I can rely on your favorites for a recommendation. I’m not a picky reader by any means, but I do have topics, personality types, writing styles that I just don’t care to read. So if we agree, well now you’ve been promoted to one of my top blogs/channels and that’s awesome.

I think I might like the times we disagree even better because they cause me to pause and re-consider what I read. How did we not draw the same conclusions? Did I miss something huge? Some major character or plot flaw that was staring me in the face, much like my keys do every morning when I can’t find them? I love knowing your reasons, they teach this career student something new.

Reason 2: I’m a reader. You’re a reader.

We’re all readers, it’s the reason we are all here, in this community. We read. And we love it. And I am not sure why, but it can be hard to find readers. This community is something special and I watch your favorites because if they’re not my favorites I want them to be. If they are already one of my favorites, we should be BFFs!

This community is something special and I watch your favorites because if they’re not my favorites I want them to be. If they are already some of my favorites, we should be BFFs! And if I haven’t heard of that title you better believe I’ve added it to my TBR.

So in conclusion, keep posting your favorites. They’re important and needed.
