Book Blogger Appreciation Week: Showing My Appreciation



Today is the start of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, and the daily theme for today is Appreciation. We're asked to share the book blogs we read on a regular basis and why we read them. But I have to admit that I am rather sporadic in my blog reading and commenting. Every year I set a goal to get better at it, and every year I seem to fall short.

So today I wanted to show my appreciation to those bloggers who seem to have this whole reading and commenting thing down. These are bloggers who consistently comment on my blog. Most of them visit and comment at least once a week. And I don't have a lot of opportunity to show my appreciation to them for that. So that's what I'm doing today. These are all great blogs that I highly recommend you check out!

  1. Aw...thanks for the shout-out, Julie! I'm honored that you included me on your list, though it's ironic that you did so because of consistency! I think I am terrible at keeping up with blogs and like you, I always pledge to do better.

    I think the reason you think I am good at reading and commenting on blogs is because I love your so much! Yours is one of the few blogs I DO try to get to at least once a week.

    I was going to try to do an appreciation post myself tonight - and planned to include yours! - but I am just too tired...

    So, thanks - and right back at ya!

Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop

I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Mundie Moms are hosting the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop in honor of Independence Day in the United States, and I've decided to participate.

To stick with the theme of Independence Day, I'm doing what I did last year for this hop:

I'm giving away a book of your choice that is written by an author from the United States.
It can be any genre as long as the author is from the United States. You choose the book (up to $15), and I'll order it and have it mailed to you from Book Depository.

The contest ends on Thursday, July 5th at midnight Eastern Time. The winner will be notified by e-mail. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.

Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a safe and fun holiday!

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
