Feature & Follow #8

Before I begin, let me just apologize for being so incredibly out of it lately.  There has been A LOT going on! I started working from home last week, and trying to cram things in to get my work done before the deadline (I’m leaving for Chicago next Thursday and I want to have my current assignment done before then), plus getting into yoga and trying to work out and get fit every day has got me pressed for time. I’ve been sadly neglecting my books, and I think they’re starting to miss me. I’m missing them too!

This Week’s Question:

What do you hope to accomplish with your blog? Is it to one day become an author yourself, just for fun, maybe get some online attention, or maybe something very different?

My Answer:

I started my blog just so I could provide an archive for my friends who were constantly asking me what they should read next.  If they ever ask I tell them to look through the archive and see if anything sounds interesting. It’s why I try to read a variety of things, though a lot of times I still learn toward the genres I prefer.  I never intended for it to get public attention, but that’s been fun too. The book blogging community is a lot of fun, and I’m really glad to see that there are a ton of people out there who have the same passion that I do.
