And, I might add, the same thing happens in reverse. Sometimes my friends suggest a book and it's "Wow". Other times? Not so much. But I don't hold it against them, and I always encourage others to suggest books. It's how I discover new books, genres and authors.
Hmm... yes. I agree to a certain extent, but would say there is a significant difference between suggesting books between friends and getting into a nitty-gritty discussion as we do sometimes here. I've not yet reached the point where I'm able to sit on my hands when perhaps I should.
