BBAW 2012 Day Three – What does book blogging mean to you?

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!

Happy Reading,

  1. Blogging has helped me branch out too! Before I would just stick with ‘safe’ choices, which is fine but a bit boring. Now I have so many books I want to read, I don’t know what to do with myself!

  2. It’s been a while since I was 19 but I remember those days very well. I was like you in that I’d rather stay home and cuddle up with a good book than almost anything else. No one “got” me. Now that I’m a book blogger I feel like I’ve found my home šŸ™‚

  3. Great response! Book blogging has definitely helped me step outside my comfort zone reading wise. I think it’s increased my love for books too–something I didn’t think was possible.

  4. It’s definitely nice to discover that there are so many other people out there who prefer a good book any day over a crazy party! Thank goodness for the internet. I would have just thought I was a weirdo forever and would have no one to spaz out over a book with! šŸ™‚
