Questions for Book Bloggers!

Questions for book bloggersHello, you! Are you a book blogger? Then I have questions for you!

As many of you know, I am currently working on my Masters in Library and Information Science. This semester, I am taking a course called “Literacy, Reading, and Readers.” I have to do a final project for the course that centers on a topic about reading. I decided it would be a great idea to examine a community of which I am a part – book bloggers!

600 followers! Let me A your Qs!

Waddup, people!? Guess what!? I reached 600 followers last week!

and there was much rejoicing

Cah-razy!

I thought the thing to do would be to first say

THANK YOU

for following, and commenting, and sharing, and liking, and being altogether great.

Nextly, I’d like to do a Q&A because I’ve seen other bloggers do this at milestones, and I have not done this, so why not get on the bandwagon?

Let me A your Qs! Qs can be about whatever you like. Just comment below, and I will respond in a forthcoming post and give you a shout-out!

Cause why not?

Love,

me.

2016 in the books

Happy 2017, ya’ll! It’s time for a yearly wrap-up! 2016 was a successful year for me both in terms of reading and in terms of blogging. I also made a big personal life change in 2016. And now I’m gonna talk about all of it! Here’s my figures and facts now that 2016 is in the books.

Goodreads:

As far as Goodreads goals are concerned, I went above and beyond my first goal for 2016. I originally set my goal at 30 books! 30! And I ended up reading 66! This was the first year I’ve ever increased my goal during the year because I was reading so much. This was in part due to readathon participation, and also in part due to the fact that I got to count many of the books I read for school on my Goodreads. Here’s some fun Goodreads facts about what I read this year:

IT’S NABLOPOMO! (and this post is gonna wander)

It’s NABLOPOMO!

The one month of the year when I decide to do a blog post every day! What is this madness!?

Right now I am currently sitting at my desk at work, streaming the Cubs game and trying to look like nothing out of the ordinary is happening. (I work at a library, so by “desk” I mean the public help desk, so the trying-to-look-like-nothing-out-of-the-ordinary-is-happening thing is a challenge, ESPECIALLY WHEN ADDISON RUSSEL HITS A GRAND SLAM AND IT IS NOW 7 TO 0 IN THE 3RD INNING).

I honestly have no idea what to write about today – I had planned to do a “welcome to NaBloPoMo” post, but I pretty much already covered that in my last post, soooooo.

Yup.

Here we are.

Day 1.

Cool.
