TGIF is a weekly meme that can be found over at greadsbooks.com. Every week you can find a question that is bound to get you thinking.
What made you decide to start your very own book blog?
Wow, you know I have no idea…I have always been an avid reader since a pretty young age. The only reader – other than my nan – in my family so you can imagine how frustrating it was trying to find an outlet for all the book I was reading and wanting to talk about. The being the only bookie in the family part of this story has changed in the past couple of years though I will add :)

So to begin with a joined Goodreads which was brilliant for posting my thoughts on books. BUT that wasn’t all I wanted to do though. I wanted to write about other topics, topics that were still in the realm of books but that weren’t strictly reviews. And thoughts that reading a book may have triggered but I couldn’t exactly bung them into the middle of a book review.
And I think that is what made me decide to sign up for a Blogger account.
I wanted to go off on a tangent if I wanted without watching someone’s -who didn’t care about what I was reading anyway – eyes glaze over with boredom.
And even if there was no one out ‘there’ reading what I was thinking it made me feel better just to get my thoughts onto the screen.
Blogging I have discovered is VERY therapeutic :)
