Creating My Own Classroom
I am honored to be participating for the first time in the Book Blogger Hop, sponsored by Jennifer at Crazy for Books. This week's question:
"What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"
I started keeping this blog to keep me organized in my classics-reading project and to give me a place to write about my experiences. (I've always been able to think better when I am typing than when I am speaking.) Both of these initial goals were about my private experience of blogging.
But very quickly I learned how exciting the world of book blogging is. Reading through other people's blogs, I have learned about irresistible contemporary fiction, enchanting literature which has resurfaced after being ignored for years, and fabulous classics which I have never read.
Learning about the literature is certainly a terrific thing about reading book blogs. But even better is the fact that whether I'm reading someone else's blog or the comments on this one, I get to enter a classroom full of amazing fellow students. The questions and insights you offer in posts and in comments are the unexpected delight I have found in the blogosphere in the last few months. Thank you all for being so welcoming.
