In addition to enjoying reading books and sharing thoughts on them, one thing I love to do is get other people's thoughts on the same! I often find myself cruising through my followed blogs (or fave users on GoodReads), seeing what books others are reading and what they've got going on.
Such is why I'm really excited to be participating in my first Book Blogger Hop! Hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books, it revolves around that same idea of getting to see what's going on with other book bloggers out there. There's also a question posed every week, which each participant is encouraged to discuss. This week's is:
"What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"
My answer may not be so exciting, but I love the reviews! They're the cornerstone of most book blogs, after all. ^_^ Even reading various reviews for the same book is fun (as is the case in book tours), since each blogger has their own review writing style, as well as (of course) differing opinions.
But I also love to find out individual bloggers' thoughts on a variety of topics. Sometimes it's the "rambling about ___" that is most enjoyable....and most hilarious! I recently read posts on topics like book review length, bizarre Christmas traditions, and the (sometimes appalling) behavior of bookstore customers. Whatever brings out the personality of the blogger is quite intriguing to me.
