Although I’m a little late on the uptake, I just couldn’t not participate in Book Blogger Appreciation Week. It is such a great idea and although I am relatively new to book blogging, I just love the community spirit of it all!
Today’s question is: What does book blogging mean to you?
The answer is a lot. Before book blogging I had no one to talk to about my book obsession. I’m 19, and all my friends are obsessed with going out partying and to be honest I felt like a complete weirdo for wanting to stay home and read! Book bloggers that I have talked to are just so open and friendly and its great that I get to talk to people about books and which ones I liked/disliked.
I also love getting recommendations for books. I was stuck in a slight book rut before I began book blogging – I read and re-read my favourites in my favourite genres, and nothing else. Blogging has really helped me branch out, and try books that I would have never ordinarily read.
Thirdly, I absolutley love to write and blogging has given me the opportunity to practise writing and really hone my skills! I love writing a little every day and especially about my favourite subjects – books!
All in all, book blogging means so much to me. Its great to be apart of a fantasic supportive community and I look forward to many more years of book blogging!
