This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!
Question: Share something you've learned about book blogging or just blogging in general in the last month.
Answer: Well, I've been blogging for over two years now, so I've learned quite a lot since I started this blog. In the past month, though, the one thing I've learned is that book blogging is SO much more enjoyable in the summer. Now don't get me wrong, I absolutely love blogging. But when the school year starts up and I have tons of homework and school reading to do, I only get about two books for blogging read a week. And those books are typically ones sent to me to review. During the summer, I have SO much more freedom...I can read ANYTHING I want and then write all about it right here :)
Over vacation, I read a book a day and knocked so many books off of my to-read list that I didn't have to read from publishers or authors. It was absolutely glorious! With school starting in a little over a week, I really hope I can still read books I've been dying to read as well as my review books. Reading books I enjoy is the reason I love blogging so much. Hopefully that lasts forever :)
I am the opposite. I thought I read more in the summer but I realized I do it more in the winter once my kids go back to school and they go to bed early I have more time to read. In the summer they are just all over the place and I find it harder :)ReplyDelete
