Thankfully Reading Weekend Mini-Challenge #3

Mini-Challenge #3 is being hosted by Jen at Devourer of Books. Here is what hse has to say:

I hope you’ve been having a great weekend reading so far. Have you been using the #thankfulreading hashtag on Twitter? Reading is a solitary activity, but it is something that is even better when you have a reading community surrounding you, which is part of the reason that many of us started blogging in the first place.

So what I want to know, is what reading community are you thankful for, and why? Are you thankful for book bloggers? The book community on Twitter? Your spouse or family that lets you ramble on and on about what you’re reading and doesn’t complain (at least not too much) about the myriad of books flowing into the house?

I love the book blogging community. I was a lurker for many years. I never thought in a million years that I would join in and create a blog since I am pretty shy and quiet. I jumped in and have never regretted it! I appreciate every one of my followers and fellow book bloggers. I love being able to share what I have read with others and I love reading what others have to say about the books they read. My family is not into books like I am so my book blogging family is super important to me and I love everyone one of you! I also have a friend who I share books with and she with me. It's fun to discuss them after we have both read them, I just wish we lived closer to each other so we could get together over a cup of tea in person to chat about books!


  1. I agree that I love to discuss books. There's nothing better than a cup of something warm (coffee, hot cocoa, or tea) to make that conversation even more awesome. I usually have a coffee while I blog and chitchat about the books I'm reading. Thanks for sharing your love of books with us!

  2. I agree. Wish we all lived closer so we could meet up and discuss books over a good cup of tea.

  3. The book blogging community are some of the best! I have increased my TBR pile by 100's I am sure!

  4. I learned awhile back that an awful lot of us are introverted people. In social situations we're quiet (and me, I'm awkward) but in the virtual world we come out of our shells. AND when we meet our virtual friends in real life, it isn't so awkward and difficult. One of the greatest experiences for me has been getting to meet a lot of my virtual friends. Keep bloggin! :-)

  5. I think so many of us really needed this outlet of people who are crazy for books, they can be difficult to find in real life.
