It's Friday the 13th! Time for Book Blogger Hop and F&F

Crazy-for-Books is running this Book Blogger Hop to help connect book bloggers with other fellow book bloggers. Here's this week's question:

Q: How long does it take you to read a book?

My Answer:
Ooh...it depends on the book. If it's an easy read and I'm liking it, it usually takes me a few hours to read. If it's not an easy read but I do like it, it can take me about 3-6 days. Now, if I don't like the book no matter if it's easy or hard, I find myself reading it between 5-12 days. If I'm struggling with it after 12 and haven't passed half of the book, then I usually skim the last half or I simply drop the book. I generally average out 2 books per week. Of course this does not include if I have a busy schedule or not.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

Q: What drove you to start blogging in the first place?


A: Let's see. I was bored one day and was browsing through Youtube and found some book vloggers. Then I noticed that these vloggers also had blogs. When I visited their blogs, I was surprised on all of the fabulous things you could do with books. The more blogs I visited, and the encouragement of my friend Wendy from Wall-to-Wall Books, I wanted to start my own blog. It only took me a week to get convinced and started my blog this past June of 2012. Now that I have started am super excited and obsessed with blogging.

Why did you start blogging? Leave me a comment and let me know!

  10. I find this bookish blog world so amazing! I can't believe I didn't know it existed until last year.

    I'm a pretty fast reader, but I'm like you, if I'm not have way through a book in about a week, then I just put it down because it's obviously not keeping my interest.

    Thanks for stopping by!
