This awesome challenge is being hosted by April over at Good Books and Good Wine. It seems like a great challenge, so I thought I would check it out! I am going to post one of these every two or three days, interspersed with book reviews. Enjoy, and feel free to join in!
Day 9: Why do you blog about books?
I thought this was going to be a long and convoluted answer, but it really isn’t. I started blogging about books because I want to be an author someday, and I thought that blogging about books and posting book reviews would be good for me in a few ways. One, it would help me identify what it is in other writing that I didn’t like so I could avoid those pitfalls in my own. Two, I hoped it would bring me into the fold of the publishing world a little more.
And then there is reason three, which is why I continue to blog about books. I just love to read and to share what I think about what I read. I don’t think my opinion is the be all and end all, and I love talking to people with differing opinions from mine. A conversation about books is always a good time, in my mind. I mean, come on. I tried to get my husband to read The Hobbit with me before we saw the movie so we could have our own little two-person book club!
So, what makes you blog about books?
