Have you ever convinced someone to read a book, a series, or a whole genre? What book(s) and who was it? Did they like it?
Many years ago, I recommended some books by Charles de Lint. She loved them and kept on reading.
I also recommended the first Anita Blake to my sister, but she was so horrified by the first paragraph where Anita was discussing her scars, she put it down. About a year ago, I lent her Mind Games by Carolyn Cross. I figured she would like it better, because the main character, Justine, is more of a regular gal. She loved the book and ran to the library to get the second one. I was so happy!
How about you? What have you recommended to others? Was it a flop or a hit?
