Yes I know that good depends on the person.
Anyway, recently I've been thinking about trying to get back into books, only to realize I have absolutely no idea where to start, and no idea how to solve this problem. When it comes to games, tv, and movies, it's plenty easy for me to pick out the things I'll like. If I do find myself having a hard time finding something I'll search for "greatest" lists and look for constants then dig deeper on those. I tried that with books, but found myself kind of groaning at a lot of the entries, which of course makes me a little skeptical of the list's usefulness to me as a whole. Though, it would help if I knew what I was looking for, but I haven't read enough in the better part of a decade to really say with authority what I do and don't want.
So, I'm not really asking for suggestions, I'm asking how YOU find books. Of course, if soliciting suggestions is (one of) the best method(s) then maybe I'll have to try and come up with some criteria. Though if there's a book you think is so good that you would suggest it to everybody regardless of what and how much you know about their tastes, feel free to drop that here I guess.
Teach me how to read, Giantbomb.
