Why I Love Wednesdays...Book Blogging or Book Blogs

I am returning with my new feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love is: Why I Love...Book Blogging OR Book Blogs (or both).

If you want to play along, feel free to grab the image (there is a button on the right sidebar now) and link your post in the linky.  Here goes.


  1. When naming your link, please choose the name of your post.  Mine would say "Why I Love...Book Blogs."
  2. Please link directly to your post and not your blog.
  3. Please participate :)
Why I Love... Book Blogs!!

I'm going to go ahead and let everyone know that I'm going to come across as a bit cheesy.  But the plain truth is that stumbling upon the book blogging community and other book blogs has greatly changed my life for the better.  And I mean that in a everybody-please-give-me-a-hug sort of way.

Book blogs connect me to readers like me.  Oh we may not read the same books but just knowing that you are a fellow reader...well it makes me go all warm and gooey inside.  There are gads of YA book blogs on my Google reader even though I don't often read YA books.

Also, sometimes I think I'm crazy when I'm reading.  I think...wait...did I just read that.  Then I hop along to another blog and they say exactly what I'm thinking.  I LOVE that.  Not because I then feel validated in all things book related but I feel like I'm not alone and I'm not crazy.

In day-to-day life I am surrounded by sooooo many non-readers.  AND they think I'm weird (someone said anti-social) because I read. They say things like..."Do you ever give your eyes a break" or "Why don't you relax and put that book blog."  My family understands but I'm not always around them (I miss my mommy).  But when I visit book blogs...all problem here.  

Finally, and my gushing is about to stop soon, I promise.  I've been introduced to new book related things.  Such as when Peep @ Attack of the Book made me curious enough to try Audiobooks.  Or when peer pressure convinced me to purchase and read The Hunger Games and now I have an addiction that I'm trying not to succumb to.  In April, I participated in Dewey's 24-hour marathon and had the ultimate blast.  I can't wait till October to try it again.  Oh and let's not forget Armchair BEA (I'm sorry that I can't remember which blog helped me with this).

I don't mind the book lust that regularly occurs when reading reviews by Bree @ Romance Around the Corner.  It is because book blogs that I met my book twins Bookbelle and Jade.  I mean really.  I can't start naming all my friends because I'm sure to leave so many out.  But book blogs are oh so special.

And why I love book blogging?  Well I get to talk about what I love and I get a golden ticket into a world that has brought so much fun...I know...oh so cheesy yet oh so true. And the giveaways are kind of cool :)
