Do you like to talk about what you read? Do you have somebody to talk WITH?
I have a few friends who read, but in general we do not read the same types of books. I recently joined a book club, which is great, but I can't read so fast as to go every month.
That is why I like blogging and the book blogging community so much. It gives me an opportunity to meet people who enjoy reading as much as I do, and not only that, people who love actual books - their feel, their heft, their smell, don't you dare dog ear that page!- and that is so refreshing to me. I wish I had more people around me who were as nerdy about it as I am lol.
I have met so many great people through blogging and I am really glad to be back doing it after my hiatus.
