Friday Blog Hops


Book Blogger Hop
Question of the week: How long does it take you to read a book?

My Answer: It really depends on the page length, my schedule, and how interested I am in the book. If I am glued to plot, I may read it in an hour or two. If the book is a thousand pages, it may take awhile or not. I remember reading a few of the Harry Potter books in one night. If a beginning of a book is slow, or if the characters are a bore, it may take me longer to read it.



Question of the Week: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?

My Answer: Years ago, I had a small community called "The Love of Reading" on MSN groups, but after MSN shut down all the groups, I started blogging. My first posts/reviews were very short as I was just writing them for myself. I got an invite to be a book reviewer for www.reviewthebook.com, in which I still do a few reviews for them. Soon after, I started getting review requests from authors and publishers. Blogging is just a hobby and a way to feed my reading addiction.
