I love reading books, it's one of my favourite things to do. But I not only adore reading books, I also love to talk about them. That's actually one of the main reasons why I started this blog. To share my thoughts about books I read and enjoyed with others is a great feeling. I love promoting the books I liked and to talk about them with other readers and bloggers online.
I'm not a person who craves to be right in the middle of a big community, in the book blogging world I can stay on the edges and still have lots of fun and joy. Over the last years I found some great and interesting book bloggers and readers online with whom I enjoy talking about books. I feel like I found my perfect place that makes me happy and that allows me to do what I want to. I enjoy visiting sites like goodreads because most people there like to talk about books. Sharing my thoughts with other book lovers gives me a lot of pleasure and makes me happy. So thanks to all my online book friends for all the interesting conversations.
I'm lucky that I not only have my blogs and social media sites to talk about my passion for reading, I have also two people in my family with whom I can talk about books. My mom and my sister both love to read and also enjoy talking about books. Whenever one of us has finished a book that was great, interesting or maybe disappointing we talk about it. We give each other reading recommendations and when my mom & my sis say that a certain book or series is not for me, then I trust them. I also love ordering suprise books for my mom and sis. More often than not they like the books I order for them and that always makes me happy. And of course then we have even more to talk about.
We not only talk about books, but we also talk about book related things like spoilers, reading the end of a book first, which series should have been shortened and so on. Everything that has to do with books is interesting to us.
Furthermore my mom and especially my sis are my two "neutral" persons whith whom I talk about blog related things. My mom doesn't read any book blogs at all and my sis only reads my two book blogs (but not regularly). It's so nice to have the possibilty to talk with someone about things that happen in the blogging world who have nothing to do with it. So thanks to my mom & sis for loving books as much as I do and for enjoying to talk about books, book related things and so on with me.
I want to know if you also love talking about books and book related things. What is so great about it for you? And who are the people that you can talk about book stuff?
