The 15 Day Book Bloggers Challenge hosted by April @ Good Books and Good Wine. Day 9 in the 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge is discussing why I decided to start blogging about books.
I've done like 3 or 4 posts about this at this point--I almost feel like my readers are probably getting sick of hearing about it. But instead of just directing you back to those posts, I'll summarize it again...
I have a lot of friends who read. And surprisingly, most of my reading friends like to read the same stuff I do. Usually if I recommend a book to them or if they recommend a book to me, we all end up loving it or feeling just about the same way--with some variations. However, none of my friends read at the same speed. It's probably obvious, but I read more than most of my friends. So I wanted a way to keep up with what I have read that I think my friends might enjoy, what I thought about each book I've read, and which ones I would really recommend to my friends. It's one of my favorite things to do--talk about books with friends.
Since starting to blog for myself and trying to keep up with it all since my real life friends do not read at the same pace as I do, I've discovered a community of people all over the world who are dying to discuss books. It's wonderful! Love you bookish peeps!
