This challenge is hosted by April over at Good Books, Good Wine. It is a new, unique challenge to put some spark back into blogging. Day 5 challenge is to Discuss why you blog about books.
There were so many times that I wanted to start a blog but never stuck with it or felt like I had enough interesting things to say about myself or my life to really keep it up. I absolutely love to read and when I discovered the world of book blogging, I thought "Maybe I should try that." I had been looking for a hobby and this became it.
I blog about books because I love to read and discuss the books I read. However, it is so much more than that. I have found a way to connect with authors and other people who have the same passion as I do about books. I love having book related discussions with other bloggers and helping authors promote their books to other readers.
I never imagined that it would get to be this big or time consuming but I am so glad that I found a hobby that I can do anytime and involves one of my favorite things to do. I am so glad I found a community of people that I have so much in common with. Lastly, I am so glad I have got to interact with so many amazing authors out there.
