I read my friends' FL page, and every so often someone's book rec sends me off to the library catalogue to see if we have it. Then I think, no, I'll wait till I'm back from NYC or have finished whatever is on the go right now. Trouble is, I'm finding that book recs are like dreams. Sometimes fragments remain ('I was driving a car' which was a nightmare because I don't drive) but more often it's just 'Oh yeah I had a dream last night.' Someone somewhere recommended something that sounded must-read but now I can't remember if it was a fantasy or a mystery or a children's book or, indeed, anything about it at all.

Maybe I just dreamed that I read someone's book rec?
