Today's question from Friday Feature is about why you started book blogging.
For me, I'd been blogging for ages and also writing book reviews on Goodreads. I met a lot of book bloggers through both those communities, so it seemed like a logical step tostart a separate book blog of my own. It's encouraged me to write longer, more thoughtful reviews compared to the ones I started with, too.
Meanwhile, this week's question at the Book Blogger Hop asks how long does it take you to read a book?
This is very variable for me as I often have at least a couple of books on the go at a time. I can read a YA novel or a fast-paced thriller in a few hours, but I also read quite a bit of non-fiction (which I prefer to digest more slowly) and epic fantasy (lots of pages!) and those tend to take longer. It can really be anything between an afternoon, and a couple of weeks. If I don't finish a book within a fortnight, though, it's probably heading for the Did Not Finish pile...
