Although we’re not supposed to, we humans are pretty quick to judge.. whether it be.a book by its cover or a website by its profile questions. Last week a new website called Bookish was getting a lot of social media buzz and I felt compelled to check it out. Frankly the fact that an extremely high percentage of the authors mentioned anywhere on it are American and that they chose to have an Essentials Collection entitled Patterson gave me a big hint that this was not the place for me but this question was the clincher
In case you can’t read the teeny writing it is one of the questions they ask you to complete when signing up and asks how many books you read a year. The highest option is 16+.
That’s when I knew I’d not bother visiting the site ever again. It’s a site for occasional readers not obsessives with endless TBR piles and a complex database of reading data that enables the creation of end of year reading charts.
It’s just as well, the last thing I really need is another distraction from my reading :)
