Today’s BBAW theme is Community. The idea is to highlight a couple of bloggers that have made book blogging a unique and meaningful experience. I decided to take a cue from the BBAW description and talk about the first bloggers who commented on my blog and encouraged me to keep at it.
My first ever comment came from Amy over at I Ponder the Page
(what a great blog name!). Amy describes herself as a Christian stay at home mom, Sunday School teacher,
wife to a great husband, and of course – a reader. I love that’s she’s always so positive, and willing to read books outside of her usual comfort zone. For example, she identified ten genres of books that she doesn’t normally read, and reading one book from each genre. I am sometimes very stuck in my reading habits, so I applaud her for doing this. The biggest way I get out of my comfort zone is by reading whatever my book club picks. I will
read almost anything, but I won’t necessarily pick it up on my own.
My second comment was courtesy of the awesome Eva over at A Striped Armchair
. Eva is a real inspiration for my blogging. She’s always managing to read great sounding books, and write terrific reviews. I love how she often includes companion reads when she reviews a book, so you can have even more choices. I wish I were as organized about what I’ve read. Of course, one of my main reasons for starting to blog was so that I can keep better track of what I’ve read, and what I thought of it. Eva also vlogs, which is way too scary for me!
I encourage everyone to check out these great bloggers, or go give a little love to some of your favorites. And leave any suggestions for me to check out in the comments – as you can see, I love my commenters!
Be sure to come back tomorrow, when I will be posting and interview with another book blogger 🙂
