Grabbing my bunny slippers........

Because it's time to HOP!!!!!!     
When I went over to Crazy for Books to start hopping, I discovered that Jennifer had added something new: a question to be answered!   This week's question is "Tell us your NAME and WHY YOU STARTED BLOGGING."    Jeez.... such pressure.    ;)~

Ok.  I'm Jo and I started blogging for a few different reasons.  I had become aware of book blogs, and had also become addicted to Google Reader, so I was continuously reading about books, and what people thought about books, and cover art, and stories, etc.   The more I read, the more I wanted to talk about it.  So, I did a little research, figured out what I generally thought my blog would be about, and jumped right in.  I'm not always good about posting every day, and when it's a really busy week, I seem to only post 1 or 2 times.  But, I really enjoy things like the Blog Hop, and Teaser Tuesdays, because they make me sit down and post.   However, I'm constantly reading, so I now try to take notes when I've got a book in my hand, so I can put my thoughts down in my blog.  It's sometimes hard for me to keep up with my TBR list because in addition to all the cool books I read about on other blogs, I'm a librarian --- so I read reviews for books that aren't coming out for a few months.   As a true book addict, I can't keep myself from adding them to my list (and when I order them for our library, putting them on hold for myself).  I'm coming up on a year's worth of blogging in August, and I can't believe I'm still here!   And I'm grateful for everyone who reads my posts, and follows my blog ---- thank you!!!

I love doing weekly memes for the same reason! It forces me to blog and think about books and what I'm reading.

Happy hop day.

Hey Jo, Just stopping by from the Hop. Every time I visit your site, I fall in love again with your header. With the hot summer burning us up here in the south, I can feel the cool autumn air and marvel at the gorgeous fall color. Hate to wish away my life but boy am I ready for cooler weather.

Rheanna said...

Wow I just love your layout and header! I can't wait for my weekend to really get to read some of your posts but I'm really enjoying your review of Clare de Lune. I have felt the same way after reading other reviews on the same book and I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one who became curious! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and I hope you enjoy the holiday weekend!

Isn't it funny how the TBR pile grows? 2 years ago I was having difficulty discovering new authors to read and now I'm at over 400 books on my TBR list!

Shera (Book Whispers) said...

Don't worry, I have little faith that my own TBR pile will ever get under control.

Found my way here through the blog hop, cute blog!
