FF 2012 Feature & Follow #105

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

A. I wish I could say I had some great noble desire to share my love of books, but it didn’t exactly start out that way. I stumbled across GoodReads last year (I can’t even remember how I found it) and OMG! I coudn’t believe my eyes. A whole website dedicated to books? And book reviews? And these oh-so-friendly book bloggers who not only like to read, but actually talk about books? Oh, GoodReads, where have you been all my life? I quickly told my closest friends (who also happen to be avid readers) about this wonderful site where you could track all of your books, find new books, and get reviews for books you were thinking about buying. They quickly signed up as well, and long story short, my blog just sort of snowballed from there! I’ve met so many great people and have discovered books I might never had the opportunity to read otherwise!

Happy Reading!

  2. Man I just found out about goodreads like a couple of books ago and my friends didn’t hear the end of it.I was so excited that people loved books as much as I did, and wanted t talk to me 😀

  3. Aw what a cool way to start book blogging! Goodreads is pretty awesome, I discovered it a few years ago when it was relatively new but I did not understand the point of it at all. I thought it was a site to keep track of what books you’ve read and what pages you’re up to in the book . I dunno, maybe it was like that at the beginning of goodreads? Now however I am pretty much addicted to goodreads!

  7. I love Goodreads! I remember when I first found it too I was so excited. I love the fact that you can keep track of what you have read and own. Thanks for stopping by my blog and I’ve become a die hard Jennifer L. Armentrout fan.
