Book reviews, musings and waffle from a British lit addict

Book Blogger Hop: 2-5 July 2010 – Why do I blog?

Crazy-for-Books is hosting a Book Blogger Hop this week asking bloggers to share their names and why they blog. So:

My name is Charlotte and, as you can see, I’ve been blogging for about 3 days – so why have I started now?

Much though I probably shouldn’t admit it, I actually kept a paper ‘Book Journal’ as it was so I decided that I might as well keep it online. After all, my journal never offered its own opinions or rewarded me for completing challenges!

I always think that if you genuinely love to read then you would want to keep track of what you read and remember the feelings every book conjured up while you were reading it, rather than those you developed some time later. I hope you enjoy my reviews once I get going!

Thanks x



  • I found you through the hop. I look forward to reading your reviews. I hope you like Charlaine Harris. I love her sookie books. I read them on vacation a few years ago. I am a new blogger too, about 3 months. I hope you have a good weekend and stop by if you can.

  • Thank you for suscribing. Going to England was very fun. Since I only was there a few days, I only went to London and drove around Runnymede. Sadly, because there seems to be many interesting things outside of London. I saw that you were reading Interview with the Vampire for a contest. That book is just amazing.
    Have a nice day!

  • Hopping by to visit and follow! I kept a reading journal too, and started writing reviews when I realized that my feelings about books changed over time, but I had no record of what went through my head as I was reading them the first time. Good luck with everything!
