Book Blogger Hop (December 10 - 13, 2010)

Book Blogger Hop



Season's Greetings everyone!  It's Book Blogger Hop time again!  

This meme is hosted by Crazy For Books.  Please check out her blog for complete rules.

This week's question is:  "What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs?  Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways or something else entirely?"

Answer:  I bet everyone's going to say this, but I like everything about reading book blogs.  

I am so happy to find a community where people love reading and discussing books as much as I do.  I mean come on, book bloggers get really into it!  Not only do they tell you what they like and/or don't like about a book, but they analyze, make teams for their favorite characters and even discuss the importance of covers as reflections of the novel and works of art in their own right.  

Author interviews?  Love 'em!  Because I love to write too and I find it inspiring, helpful and extremely interesting to hear what published authors have to say.  Having authors reach out on blogs make them so approachable and I love getting a glimpse of the person behind the story.

Articles and giveaways are icing also, but what I love most about book blogs are the people behind them.  I love their enthusiasm about reading, their friendliness and the fact that they are always willing to give advice to other bloggers.

Hi! I'm a new follower. I like reviews. It's always interesting to see what others thought of a book.

I like your idea for the Dusty Volumes Challenge. Once I can get the post up, I'll be back to join it and put the info into Mr. Linky.

Have a great weekend!

Hi! I'm a new follower!

I like the book reviews the best, especially for books that I have already read. It's interesting to compare my thoughts with other opinions.

Have a great weekend!

Good answer! We book bloggers are a crazy, funny bunch. That's why I love the book blogging community. There are so many different personalities out there - that's what makes it so fun.

Glad to have found you via the Hop!
