This week's features are Vivian @ Vivaciously, Vivian and Jessica @ A Great Read this week's question is:
What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?
In 2009 my husband left for a year long tour to Iraq. This was a very difficult time for our family, not only did I found myself to be a single parent of three boys, but my hubby, best friend, and partner in life was going to a war zone. About a month after he left my mom, sister and cousin came to visit and my sister bought the ‘Twilight’ movie and raved about the books. Before she left, she gave me the first book as a gift. I devoured these books in no time at all AND in doing so discovered Goodreads, book blogs, author websites and a whole new world opened up for me.
At the beginning I started following other bloggers/reviewers in Goodreads and adding blogs to ‘my favorites’ and eventually I created a Blogger account, just so it would be easier to follow. After debating back and forth with the decision I started Reading with ABC in May of 2011. Having a blog takes a lot of my time (which I don’t have much of anyway!), but I absolutely love it! Thank you for reading and being a part of the journey!
