I was looking through books yesterday at the shops and saw all the Twilight books, which I know basically nothing about. What I do know is that I’m beginning to feel like I’m the *only* person who knows nothing about them.

Despite being almost broke and trying to save money, I almost bought the expensive book (Australian book prices are often completely nutty) just because I felt the need to be ‘up’ on what everyone else was reading.

Have you ever felt pressured to read something because ‘everyone else’ was reading it? Have you ever given in and read the book(s) in question or do you resist? If you are a reviewer, etc, do you feel it’s your duty to keep up on current trends?

Okay.....I admit it, I have been pressured into reading a book or two...or more. (Yes, Ben I am still blaming you for the whole dark trilogy thing!)
I don't feel duty bound to keep up with "trends" per se, but I do like to read books others have found interesting. Some I like, others not so much. I don't usually do a review of anything I read so I guess it isn't a worry for me. Lol!
