We’ll be taking a few days off from reviews here to participate in Book Blogger Appreciation Week, hosted by the lovely people over at The Estella Society.
Personally, I would say the way I stay most closely connected to books and readers is Goodreads. Not only do I keep track of my own to-be-read lists, ratings, and reviews there, I also engage with a number of readers with similar (and sometimes differing) tastes. I’m also active in a few groups that offer reading challenges (a great motivator!) and recommendations (awesome for discovery of new books)!
I also have a number of people I engage with (authors, publishers, and readers) on my personal Twitter account. Recently, I started blog-specific Twitter account so that my posts here don’t get lost in some of the other “noise” of my regular, non-book-related tweeting.
One of the reasons I decided to participate in this event this year is to take the opportunity to connect more with other bloggers specifically, as I think that’s one area where I could do more–and would certainly benefit, as well. Unfortunately, this week has turned out to be one of the busiest weeks in recent memory for me, so I’m not able to engage as much as the posting is happening. But I definitely plan to go back and look through all of the collected links once life slows down just a bit…
