Book Blogger Hop Dec 10

Book Blogger HopThis is the Book Blogger Hop, hosted at crazy-for-books.com

This week's question for discussion:


What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?


Book reviews and articles, definitely. I like when a blogger reviews a book I haven't heard of in a way that makes me interested in picking it up. A great blog can even recommend a book that the blogger liked in a way that makes it clear that I would not like it. That's helpful. It's fun to read negative reviews as well, particularly of books I also disliked. I like when a blogger reviews a book I've read, because that can become a discussion. I appreciate well-thought out articles about reading, writing or bookstores, again, particularly when it inspires further discussion.  

If that sounds like what I try to do here, you're not far off. As far as blogging is concerned I write what I would like to read.

I love to enter the giveaways. It's always exciting to be exposed to new books with the possibility of getting to read them.
