How exciting! I’m actually going to try and start something. It’s a weekly bookish meme!

What is this wild new thing?
I’ll tell you. Searching Saturday is supposed to be a way to find new to you books, whether it’s to add to your TBR or just to talk about. The aim is to search, far and wide. And find a hidden gem.
Where do I search?
Search Goodreads, websites, other blogs, your local library, your friend’s shelves, your mother’s dirty old books collecting dust in the attic, your neighbor’s cousin’s great grandmothers brothers basement. I don’t care, as long as you search!
What do I search?
Books of course, you silly! But If you want to be a rebel and search for tv shows or movies, that’s fine with me too.
How do I search for them?
Yet another great question, you’re such a smart potato. It’s completely up to you. I will be posting topics for each week on a monthly basis, like “Search a book with … on the cover” or “Search a book with … main character”. These topics might help you search and find books you normally wouldn’t even consider. You can choose to use these topics. But if you would rather just search freely or you don’t like a topic. That’s fine too. Here we go again… as long as you search!
We get it, we’re supposed to search. What do we do when we have found?
You make a post, or you don’t. If you do, it’s up to you again. It doesn’t matter if you found 1, 10, 48 or no books at all. You could give a brief list of things you found, explaining which ones you find interesting and why. You could only show books you’re adding to your TBR. You could explain your process or describe the place you went to search, like your neighbor’s cousin’s great grandmothers brothers basement. Or you could talk about how this weeks topic was horrible and you were unable to find anything. It’s your party!
I hope I have provided you with enough information. More importantly, I hope you like this idea!
PS: I don’t even care if you don’t do it on Saturdays. As long as you… I’ll stop.
