Sometimes I go down odd rabbit holes.
I’ll click through hundreds of links to related articles when I only intended to read a single Wikipedia article.
I will look up an address in Google Maps and, by the time I’m done following a route or free travel long down some roads, I’ll find myself a whole country or continent away.
I’m discovering this happening now with book recommendations.
A handful of years ago, I saw a jacket review from an author I liked recommending Andy Weir’s The Martian. I read it and loved it.
A couple months ago, Weir recommended Blake Crouch’s Recursion, which I was given a chance to review for Geeks of Doom, and I loved it.
Now, Blake Crouch has a jacket pull quote for Jeff Lemire’s Frogcatchers.
I was already planning to read it, but I think it’s moved up the priority list a bit.
I think it’s Lemire’s turn next.
