I don’t think I’m alone in being someone who clicks on something interesting, in my case usually a book that looks interesting, then I see something else interesting in the new place, click again, and end up following a breadcrumb trail of interesting things to finally find something good.
The other day I did this and found a really cool gift for a friend. It wasn’t her birthday or anything, I just followed along until I arrived at a destination where there was something I knew she’d love.
I’ve also found three new books in the last week or so doing this. A book looks interesting, but then I see another recommended book near it, click that and so on until I find something great. I have picked up a really nasty flu bug and the last three days I’ve been feeling very sorry for myself, not writing and reading a lot, and these books are not ones I’ve heard about or seen advertised, if feels like they are special finds, and they have all be terrific.
Do you do this, too, and what great surprises have you found along the way? Isn’t it fun how the internet has created this new way of finding things?
