It's time for another Book Blogger Hop! This is a great event hosted by Crazy for Books and designed to connect book bloggers. I haven't participated in the Hop in a few weeks but I thought I'd jump back in today. The question for this week is:
"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 have to admit that the thing I like most is the book reviews and recommendations. I say recommendations too because I read a lot of blogs dedicated to children's books and I'm always looking for recommendations of books that my kids would like. For myself, I have a HUGE pile of books to read right now ~ and I'm buying a Nook for Christmas so I'll be trying to read all of those traditional books next year, along with many new ebooks! So I don't look for as many recommendations for me at the moment (although I can't help but add books to my list as I read great reviews). But I am always trying to find new books for the kids. We make trips to the library almost weekly, and I'm always filling our bag with children's books, many of which I discovered on book blogs.
What about you? What do you like most about reading book blogs? Speaking of that, what do you like most about My Book Retreat? Would you like to see more author interviews or articles or guest posts? I'd love to hear what you think!
And while you're here, check out my latest giveaway, which ends Saturday night!
