This is a weekly event hosted by Jen at Crazy For Books. It's a chance to discover new blogs and to garner new readers for your blog as well.
New this week.....Tell us your name & answer the question - "Why did you start your blog?"
My name is Karen and the short answer as to why I started a blog is - to save my marriage. I never used to be a big reader. Maybe 6 books a year on a busy reading year. Then I read the Twilight series in four days, the next night I was up until 4 am reading The Host and so began my reading obsession. That year (2009) I read almost 150 books! Of course I had to discuss them....at length ...with someone. Ding ding ding!! That would be my poor husband. I realized I had to share my passion in another way when he started knowing who the Black Dagger Brotherhood was and corrected me when I made the mistake of saying Z and Mary...he questioned me...."Isn't Z with Bella?" okaaay. Poor guy. So I started reading and commenting on book review blogs. Then my husband kept bugging me to do my own blog since I'm so opinionated. MOI????
So here I am! I hope you like what you see and come back soon. There are a lot of blogs out there and I'm glad you came to check out mine!
Head on over to Parajunkee's View and participate in her wonderful new Follow Friday! Again, make sure you read the rules before you enter!
