BBAW 2011: Readers


One of the things that book blogging has done for me is that it has really opened me up to new genres. Before starting to book blog the chances of me picking up a Young Adult or Romance book were very slim. They were just genres that I had never really explored before. Once I started reading other book blogs and connecting with other bloggers and hearing about all of the different things that they were reading, I decided to go out on a limb and try some of these genres that were new to me. Boy, was I glad that I did. I never realized how much I was missing out on.

How has book blogging changed you?

  1. I definitely read more widely than I used to. And even if I haven't actually read certain genres or publishers or prize winners, I'm so much more aware that all those different things exist. In that way, among others, my reading world has absolutely grown with blogging!

  3. I definitely read things now that I probably wouldn't have read before, especially books from small publishers and authors who are self-publishing. Very cool. :)

  4. I have read lots of genres I wouldn't normally read either. That has lead to lots of treasures!

  5. More than a few people have decided to try YA because of book blogs! That makes me happy, for some reason. :D

Hi! Welcome to A Bookish Affair. If you leave a comment, I will try to either reply here or on your site!

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
