FF 2012 Feature & Follow #105

Feature and Follow is hosted by Paranjunkee & Alison Can Read every Friday. Complete Rules and Instructions are here: Feature and Follow

This week's question:

Q: What drove you to book blogging in the first place?

I wanted to share my thoughts about literature and whatnot to people who would listen. I already joined Goodreads and it's great. There are great people that I've made friends with and some very helpful reviews. Also, it baffled how these reviewers got hold of so many books to read, some unpublished, and so much time on their hands to review them. I started looking around and discovered this great YA book blogging community behind it all. It was great. Reviews, books, tips about writing, people with great personalities. I decided that I wanted to be a part of it and set work making my own. So here I am, a couple of weeks later, nursing my infant of a blog, reading more books and writing reviews.

  2. When I first started book blogging, I had NO idea what a big community it was! Then I started joining sites like goodreads and now I can't imagine ever NOT blogging about books! Welcome to the book blogging community!

  3. When I started mine, I was so lost I am surprised I made it but with the help of a bunch of fellow bloggers I did it.

  7. Awesome answer. It's more or less the reason I started blogging too, though without goodreads. :)

  9. Hi Katrina!
    I hadn't even discovered goodreads until after I started blogging: it's great that you had such a start though :D Yeah, I had no idea I could get ARCs or "free books" until I had been blogging for about a year. I was astounded! It upsets me when people are like "part of the reason I started blogging was for the free books" ~face palm~ Anyway! I'm a new follower, and I love your blog.

    P.S. interesting title. It reminds me of that Holocaust related book: I have lived a thousand years. It's really good.

    1. Yeah. It is disappointing when people only want to get free books out of book blogging. I mean, if you want to read free books, go to the library. Jeez...
      Thanks for the follow and I'll have check out that book.
