Feature & Follow Friday

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly tradition hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. They feature an awesome book blogger and post a question ~ we learn a little bit about each other. You gain new followers, make new friends, and discover new books ~ something to look forward to every Friday :).

Q: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?

I've always loved to read ~ been reading since before I can remember ~ and I was at a point in my life (a never-ending point, it seems) where I needed to do something I was passionate about, something I loved. I work in banking ~ yawn ~ while painstakingly combing the wanted ads for jobs that will actually put my Art History degree to work, and I was am just completely BORED. Then all of a sudden it hit me ~ I had an epiphany ~ I should write about the books I read! Why didn't I think of that before!?! So I did some research, played with some blog hosting sites, and have been learning as I go. Book blogging keeps me sane, gives me something to look forward to every morning, and allows me to meet people who are as addicted to books as I am. It has completely become my passion.

Follow me darlings, I follow you :)

Happy Reading Everyone :)
