I have never viewed myself as a writer; I am a reader who likes to talk about books. But because when I started this blog I knew few people who read in the same genres as I do, I needed somewhere to talk about books where like minded people might come. So a few years later here we are. I blog about books. I review books. I do book memes. And this year I am hosting a challenge (1). For me blogging is mostly about wanting to make connections to other bloggers who feel as passionately as I do about books.
I have rarely received ARCs, but the one I have gotten was a doozy. I am still so glad I got to read The Magician King early. For my birthday I received a Color Nook. I am hoping that I will be able to up my e-ARCs through both NetGalley and Edelweiss.
Finally, I have been pretty open about the fact that I am an Amazon Associate. Most links to books will result in my getting a very small cut if your purchase. Other links to authors and other products are not monetized in any way.
And if nothing else … Blogging has brought me here to participating in and volunteering for ABEA!
