Joy | 1116 comments I was wondering if anyone in the group has a book blog out there they'd like to share? I'm always looking for bookish bloggers. If you do, please post here and let us know!
Here's the link to mine, it needs work, but I think I had sort of given up because I hardly had any hits.

Jenn I dont have one yet, but I've been thinking of starting one. I have a normal, everyday blog that I've wanted to convert over for a while.

Nathalie (natjen29) I've got a blog, but not a bookish one. Apart from reading, I've got an almost as large passion for cooking, so my blog is about that.

If you're interested, you can find the link on my profile page. :)

I do love to read bookblogs though, so going to check the links out!

Nathalie (natjen29) Don't mention it.
Readers are the as important as what I'm writing on it. :)

I've recently started a book blog. I've done anything like it before so if you find anything wrong with it please keep that in mind.

Elizabeth, your blog looks great! I've thought about doing a book blog but I really don't have the time and much more enjoy spending the time I have reading more and writing less about the books I'm reading...lol Maybe someday when things slow down :)


message 12: by Michelle (new)

Michelle Isenhoff (michelleisenhoff) I've recently given my blog a new direction - middle and YA readers. Almost like starting over. I deleted a lot of old stuff. Now I'm trying to focus on books and ebooks for kids, with maybe a little writing/publishing in there. I'm a teacher, middle-grade and teen lit enthusiast, and indie author in the genre. I love kids books!


message 13: by Michelle (new)

Michelle Isenhoff (michelleisenhoff) Lol! Forgot. Here's that blog:

Michelle, I really enjoyed looking at your blog! :) Thanks so much for sharing...


message 15: by Michelle (new)

Michelle Isenhoff (michelleisenhoff) Thanks! That must have been you on my stats today, lol!


message 16: by Michelle (new)

Michelle Isenhoff (michelleisenhoff) Oh, and by the way, Andrea, things NEVER slow down, do they? That's why I'm always blogging at midnight.

NEVER...lol :)


Lianne (The Towering Pile) Lavoie (liannelavoie) | 532 comments I have a book blog that's still fairly new but is doing pretty well so far: The Towering Pile

I'm hosting the 2012 Anne Rice Challenge there. You don't need a book blog to join, a Goodreads profile is fine, so I hope some of you will join me! :)

Lianne, I like your blog! I cracked up about you memorizing Dr Suess as a child so you could "read" the books. My fav was Wacky Wednesday :)


Lianne (The Towering Pile) Lavoie (liannelavoie) | 532 comments Andrea, I'm glad you like it! :) My favourite Dr. Suess was "Oh Say Can You Say", the tongue twister one, though I doubt that was one I had memorised. I also like "The Berenstain Bears and the Spooky Old Tree", which I definitely had memorised. My parents used to read me that book every day!

I also group up in a house where reading was a daily activity. I think that this is part of the reason I am such a big reader, I learned to love it from an early age.


message 22: by Maphead (new)

Maphead | 326 comments Late last night I posted my Top "Ten" Books of 2011. Feel free to check it out...

Thanks for sharing, as always :)


Lianne (The Towering Pile) Lavoie (liannelavoie) | 532 comments I mentioned before that I'm hosting the 2012 Anne Rice Challenge on my blog, but I never linked to it: the sign-up is here. You only need to read one Anne Rice novel to participate at the first level. :)


Lianne (The Towering Pile) Lavoie (liannelavoie) | 532 comments I don't want to seem spammy, but starting today I also have a giveaway on my blog here for The Grimoire Chronicles: Veil Between Worlds by Sally Dubats. All you need is an email address to enter. :)


Lianne (The Towering Pile) Lavoie (liannelavoie) | 532 comments For those book bloggers who haven't heard, Yara of Once Upon a Twilight! recently lost her home and all her possessions in a huge fire. In an incredibly inspiring display of community love and support, several bloggers have organised Restock Yara's Bookshelves. They have a list of books that Yara had or wanted, and you can send books off the list to her friend, to be given to Yara for her birthday next month. :)

Charleen, I loved reading your blogs. The one about 5 star books was really great. I agree with you that sometimes books just don't live up to the hype. Still Alice was one of those books that reached beyond the hype :)


message 30: by Charleen (new)

Charleen (charleenlynette) | 1595 comments I just started a book blog today. My main focus will be on thrillers, with some mystery and suspense thrown in.
