This was created to learn about the blogger, fellow bloggers,etc as a community.
Why Do You Blog about Books?
This answer should be obvious-I LOVE BOOKS! I love both reading them and sharing them with others. Blogging just gives me a wider reach to do so. :)
I used to drive my family nuts by trying to convince them to read books I loved. I got a lot of "That's nice honey, but I don't feel like reading." I was always the odd one out in my family. the only other major reader was my Grandmother several states away and I knew we had different reading tastes.
My friends read some, but I don't think any quite near to the level I did but I had a bit larger reach.
Then I started volunteering at Libraries. That really got me going on some good book conversations with patrons. And I learned what it is like to max out a library card due to the books the recommended to me. I loved trading off book recommendations with others...
Then I found Goodreads! The best site ever! I have met so many people and authors alike on this site. I loved finding others who loved books the way I do.
After a couple years, I finally decided to give this blogging thing a go. So many said it was a great way to share books. I must agree. Although I am still very loyal to Goodreads, Book blogs add so much personality. And you can better show off your favorites!
So, here I am 5 months later, still getting into this book blog business and having a blast. Especially when someone leaves a comment saying they are going to get a book I shared or that it sparked an interest in them. It makes me feel that my interest and passion for books means something, somwhere to someone. Even if just for a moment. That makes all the time I put into blogging (and sometimes it sure does seem to be a lot) worth it!
