Follow Friday



Q: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?

I really wanted to have my reviews in some kind of order, so I first started with that goal in mind. Then, when I saw the vast world of book reviewing that is on the web, I got very interested in reviewing Indie authors and helping out to get these books into the mainstream as much as possible.

That's a great reason--I think it must be really tough to have to promote yourself as an author. Helping out the indie writers you read and appreciate is a great use of book blogging.

Nice! I used to keep one of those book journals myself, but once I started blogging, I got tired of writing everything down in two places! So my blog is now my book journal too!

Getting reviews for Indie books out there is certainly a worth goal. There are a lot of great unknowns.

Thanks for stopping by my blog this week!

One of the best things about finally getting my hands on a Kindle is the easy access to indie books. It's been a great experience to find some real gems!

It's nice that you had reviews first, I hadn't written a review until I started my blog so my first ones were pretty terrible!

Thanks for stopping by!
