BBAW – Day 3: What Book Blogging Means To Me
September 12, 2012 34 Comments
I’m participating in the Book Blogger Appreciation Week, which is an event to recognize the hard work and contribution of book bloggers to the promotion and preservation of a literate culture actively engaged in discussing books, authors, and a lifestyle of reading.
The blog post for today is about : What Does Book Bloggin Mean to You?
Go to the BBAW hosting site to find links to other blogs taking part in the BBAW. These will also talk about this topic today.
What Book Blogging means to me
Book blogging has become a fixed part of my life: I eat, I read, I do the shopping, I book blog. Not every day, but most days.
It’s great fun, so many perks:
I have made a lot of new friends online, that all share a passion for books. [BIGGEST PERK!]
I even met some of them – and what is better than meeting over a cup of tea to discuss books?
I have discovered lots of books that I wouldn’t have without book blogging.
I get hold of books that aren’t out (yet) in the Netherlands, because USA/UK publishers send me them.
I seem to win a lot of free books.
I don’t have to buy books anymore (but I still do)
But on the other hand:
It takes a LOT of time!
I now read books while keeping in mind that I need to review them.
My to-read pile is large. I mean, unpleasantly large.
I need to keep my reading and blogging organised via a spreadsheet. Sounds like work? It is!
Stress, to get reviews posted on time, especially when it comes to books I get from publishers.
Overall, I love it!
Do you book blog?
