I came across this awesome idea on Good Books and Good Wine.  The 15 Day Book Blogging Challenge.  April came up with these awesome bookish exercises to get our creative juices flowing, to remind us why we blog in the first place and for fun!

I've been so busy lately and I've been out of town so I feel that my blog has been seriously lacking.  Truth be told, it's been hard to get back in the swing of things.   When I saw this Challenge, it lit that blogging flame again.  The nice thing is, you don't have to do all 15 challenges.  Just do what you can.  You also may want to visit the other participating blogs and see what they have to say.

For complete details please visit the starting post HERE.

Why do I blog about books? 

(Channelling Buddy from Elf). I blog about books because I love books!  Books are my favorite!  And reading too.  Reading's my favorite.   I love reading.  (End Buddy channelling).

There just never seems to be a defecit of material does there?  There are just soooo many books to read and authors to get to know and stories to appreciate.  With books there is always something new and different.  Even if a book is old and has been read before, it's the first time *I've* read it. Even if it's a re-read (which TBH I rarely do)there is always something new to be discovered.

I also blog about books because I love discussing books with others.  I love hearing what other people are reading, even if it's a book I will never read. That is one reason I'll read blogs/reviews that are kind of different genres than I would normally read.  I love to hear the stories and why people like the characters and what they have to say about the book is always fascinating.   I like to hear the story from their point of views.

I never really thought to blog about anything else, except maybe Halloween and travelling, but I feel like while I do keep Halloween in my heart 24/7 and I travel whenever I can, books are more prevalent to my everday life.

Yay - so glad to discover your blog and other book bloggers. I love the community and sharing the passion for books with other people :-)

I think that is the core reason every book blogger blogs about books. You gotta love em to do the rest of it :)

I blog about books because I hope to spotlight some of the less known, but nonetheless worthy ones. And I like to chat books with my fellow bloggers of course ;).

I loved that you channel Buddy the elf to discuss Books. So true about reading and talking about books :)

Karen said...

Buddy! I totally read that as you jumping and twirling around like him :-)

I just haven't found any other group of people that are as great & supportive as book bloggers are.

Sure there has been drama and there are always a few bad apples but when things non- bookish happen in my life you guys (yes - specifically you) are there for me in a way that even my real life friends aren't.

Plus, who understands our obsession with books?? I think often about throwing in the towel but it's an important part of my life now. I would miss it too much.

I'm like you - I like reading reviews for books I won't ever read myself. As long as the blogger's reviews reflect their personality I find it interesting.

So true. I love books and I love reading. I love talking books with authors and other booklovers too.

@Tanya-Thank you so much! I think the community is awesome too!

@Felicia-Exactly. Love of books helps spur us on to do everything else.

@Roberta-I like that you want to highlight some of the lesser known books. There are some gems out there!

@Julie-Buddy captures the enthusiasm I feel about books! lol.

@Karen-I agree with you. There are some people that you just connect with. I agree - a few of my blogger friends are now my bffs! (Looks at you.)

@Aurian-Lovefest for the written word!
