Friday Blog Hop - June 24th

Book Blogger Hop


In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop (http://www.crazy-for-books.com) is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!

Each week, participating blogs are asked questions to post and answer on their websites.

This week’s question –

When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?


For me, I realized how much I enjoyed reading when I moved overseas.  I was an English teacher in Asia and I didn't have television or much money to do anything.  I started to visit local bookstores and began reading, remembering how much I loved to read while growing up and drifted away from it when I was in university.  Somehow, reading for pleasure took a backseat to reading my textbooks....so glad I have my passion for reading back!

  3. Reading for fun took a backseat for me in college too - I was an English major, so I spent most of my time reading textbooks and the classics. It wasn't until after graduation that I started reading for fun again!

  4. Exactly Super! That was what happened to me as well. Too much reading in terms of assignments and textbooks...
