BookishThoughts1I have always read a lot, but since I started blogging, I’ve discovered something fascinating about reading: It is better when you have other people with you. Here is a bunch of reasons why:

You have someone to flail with

As I’m sure most of you have noticed, flailing about books is so much more fun when you have someone flailing alongside you.

You have someone who understands

While everyone else is telling you it’s just a book, you have people who understand what you’re going through when you read a particularly heart-breaking book, or when you have just experienced a horrible cliff hanger.

You have someone who you can have discussions with

Sometimes, you just need to discuss a book, and sometimes writing a review just isn’t enough. You need to be able to have someone with whom you can complain about what you didn’t like, or discuss why you loved it so much.

And, most importantly, You have someone to tell you what to read next

I think this is pretty self explanatory. When you’ve finished a book, most often you just need to know which book you should read next, and people are good at telling you that.

Do you agree? Is there anything I missed?
