The discussion in one of the online book groups today started with “does everyone else hate being asked about what you’re reading and what it’s about?”
My favorite answer was “No one ever asks me, because they know I’ll tell them.”
Also, was “I enjoy telling the world, hoping that they’ll pick up the book and we can discuss it.”
Personally, I love discussing books and recommending them. I also love getting book recommendations, especially unsolicited ones. I find myself giving unsolicited recommendations if I’m especially excited about a book. My friends and family know this about me. Some ask. Some avoid the topic.
