Day Nine: Why Do You Blog About Books?
In December of 2011, I read Susan Wise Bauer's The Well-Educated Mind, and I decided that I would read through her list of the classics. Somewhere I read that it would be a good idea to blog about a challenge because it keeps you accountable. I had a homeschool blog already. So what's a book blog? Right?
In January 2012, I started my book blog to keep me accountable to the challenge that may take me about ten years to finish. In turn, I found my love for reading again, especially the classics that I had been avoiding, and now I have developed a love for writing about my experiences with the books I do read.
Reading is not just for entertainment or knowledge; reading is for a life experience, an adventure, and better comprehension or discernment of human nature. I love to share what I learn through books with others who think the same way about reading. And I even found a host of other bloggers who are on the same journey as me, which makes it all the more worthwhile to blog.
