Whew, already day 3! We're halfway there! Today's topic is to highlight a real-life blogging experience and how that's shaped your book blogging life. For me, it would be my high school librarian.
Before high school, I was an avid reader. I still am of course, but I have less time for it. I was reading all the time! During the summer I'd check out stacks of books, only to have them finished within a week. My parents hated the back and forth trips :P Once I hit high school, I was determined to continue my love of reading. Up until this point, I hadn't read too many fantasy books. I'd read a few, but no high fantasy. The first day I checked out a few books that looked good, my librarian immediately asked me what genres I was interested in. When I told her fantasy, she introduced me to one of my current day favorite authors: Chris Wooding. It just so happened that the library carried two of his books, and I LOVED them. Poison became one of my favorite books ever! My librarian encouraged my love of reading through-out high school, but it became harder and harder to find time for pleasure reading. However, I still appreciate that attempt she made to make reading a bigger part of my life, because it fueled me into my future of book blogging!
This is a great opportunity to give some books to people who share your interests, and GET some books to add to your library! But it only works if lots of people sign. Up. You can sign up either at Emily's blog or Enna's blog. Sign ups are open until November 22nd.
