What does book blogging mean to you? :The day I discovered that there were book blogs out there in blogworld, I felt like a child who had found an unexpected treasure box filled with candies! I was thrilled to bits that there were all these wonderful people out there willing to share about what they had read and also ready to “listen” to your views on books. I do not have too people around me who read as much as I do and being unable to share/discuss the books I have read does make me feel a little lost.
Book blogging has enabled me to share what I read as well as my feelings on the books I read. It helps create an outlet for two of my favorite activities – reading and writing. I have discovered like-minded bloggers who read books similar to my tastes and thus discovered more books to read. I have also learned to expand my reading outside my normal comfort zones after reading other bloggers’ reviews for the same.
Book blogging has helped me realize that there is so much out there to learn and so many (in number and variety) books to read and enjoy. I discovered another magical world - the world of memes and reading challenges - these made the already loved activities of reading and writing way more enjoyable and challenging. And of course, book blogging has helped me discover a wonderful, close-knit, supportive community. I am really lucky that I have all these super-book-bloggers who are there to help with suggestions, answers to questions and book blogger events like BBAW and Bloggiesta to enhance the experience of book blogging.
Yay to book blogging!
