What’s that book about?


When I scroll through the book titles on my Goodreads.com friend feed, sometimes I wonder, “what’s that book about?” I consider asking the person who is reading the book. But then I realize I could just click on the link and read the official summary.

Funny how online stuff works. If a friend tells us in person that he/she read a particular book, it’s natural to ask what it’s about. But when you read online that someone read a book, it seems like it’s more proper to click on the link and see what the book is about. Even if the person didn’t give a review, there’s still the official book summary.
