Blog Hop


Great Fun! I decided to join The Book Blogger Blog Hop hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy For Books. I saw a few of the bloggers on my subscription list putting up posts for it, and it seemed like great fun. I can't wait to hop around to other blogs myself. Anyhow, we were asked to tell our name and why we started book blogging, so here I go.

My name is Jazz. I started book blogging, because I realized a lot of my friends and dance students didn't seem to enjoy reading for pleasure as much as I did. I started to brain storm different ways to make reading seem as fun as it is. I thought starting a blog would be a wonderful way to do that. What if I could make the story come alive? I did a little research to find facts, movie trailers, and such. I'm also a music lover and like to listen to music while reading. Thus, I thought it would be fun to make playlists for each book. Actually, you would be surprised how often music is written about in books.

I really just discovered in the past year that there is a book blogging community. It's so great that I'm not alone. I love reading other book blogs and getting new ideas. I'm still working on posting consistently, but I feel like I'm getting better. I've made a goal to at least post once or twice weekly, and I'm doing well with that. It's very exciting to meet goals. I would love to do three days a week, but you know baby steps. I want to do a good job for my readers. I am so thankful to those of you who follow and comment. Okay, I'm babbling.  I like to talk. Ha ha. Well, maybe I should say I like to write.  Have fun hopping around my blog. Hope you find some good reads. Keep it shiny!

Oh! I'm also joining Follow Friday hosted by Parajunkee's View. Click  the button to find out more about it.
