Why blog about books?
This week on Downright Discussions I decided to talk about book blogging. I mean, it seems like a pretty appropriate topic and all..
Book blogging is a great way to share the love of books. It's also a great way for readers to find and recommend books to one another.
I actually joined book blogging after my obsession with The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. As soon as I read the book, I went online and found out that there was an entire genre dedicated to books like The Hunger Games. This genre was called dystopian. Since then, I've been obsessed with futuristic books. Will this ever get old for me? I really hope not, because I love reading books about what could possibly come in the future, though I highly doubt that any of the stuff I read about could ever happen. But hey, you never know. The book world might be pretty prepared for any type of apocalypse!
Blogging about books is also a great way to meet new readers that love the same kind of books that you do. It's always a great feeling to talk about favorite books with other people that actually understand what you're talking about. That's why I love book blogging. It's also fun to meet authors and actually work with publishing houses. It's really cool to think of some of the things that book bloggers can do.
What's your favorite thing about book blogging? Why do you blog about books?
