Still Can’t Stop Talking About It

I’ve just been looking at this prompt and the rest of the ones for the month.  Seems like they’re getting a bit samey now I’m pretty much two thirds of the way through them.  Still can’t stop talking about it, the earlier can’t believe more people haven’t read it and the upcoming should have sold more copies are different ways of saying what’s kind of the same thing when you boil it down to nothing.

And pretty much every book I can think of this particular prompt I’ve already mentioned for other prompts.

Geek Girl by Holly Smale

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Fever by Mary Beth Keane

Anything by Margaret Atwood.

Part of the problem is that I don’t often talk about books that I’ve read in the past.  If I’m talking with friends about books it’s usually what we’ve just read, or what we’ve just bought.  Not five years ago I read this amazing book and I’m still talking about it now.

Although, come to think about it as I write this, it’s just ocurred to me that the first ever audiobook I listened to as an adult (I had some as a child but then I didn’t really do audiobooks again as a regular thing until I think the end of 2010) was The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver.  I choose that based on multiple recommendations and the fact it was one of the 1001 books to read before you die.  And it was awesome.  Even now if I’m wandering a bookshop with a friend or my mum and I see a copy I’ll point it out as a book I loved.

It’s not a regular thing but it’s a regularly occasional thing – my talking about it – and I guess that’s what they meant.
