TGIF: A Book Blogger is Born
(Hosted at GReads)
This Friday's Question:
A Book Blogger is Born: What made you decide to start your very own book blog?
A side-effect of being a librarian is that you love to talk about books. Most people don't mind. They might not understand my fascination with fairies, public schools, or coming-of-age stories, but they play along. Others complain, especially when you go on and on about teen fiction when all they read is adult romance or mysteries. Or they're not readers at all, and I'm just a weird girl with too much imagination. I love reading other blogs that discuss teen lit, and I wanted to contribute. Plus, I just really needed a hobby.
College kind of ruined me when it came to just sitting and relaxing. I got too used to doing homework and multi-tasking while watching TV. I've been done with school for over four years now, and I still can't enjoy primetime television. I tried crocheting (I have about 20 unfinished projects), coloring (which is fun, but can get a little tedious), and sudoku (which is just frustrating). I needed something to keep me occupied during the evenings that wouldn't cost me any money, and voila!, blogging fit the bill.
So here I am, a relatively new blogger, and loving every minute of it. Is anyone reading? I don't know. While I'd love some interaction, I'm really just enjoying the process. I like sharing my thoughts and ideas, and maybe, just maybe, I'll make a friend or two that shares my enthusiasm.
