This year I’m going to go easy with the reading challenges. Selecting particular titles I intend to read is almost a guarantee I won’t read them, of late. So I am going to do more free-form and spontaneous reading, letting my interests lead me along the way.
However, I came across a new challenge I want to join: Support Book Bloggers hosted by Pages Unbound. The lovely Briana says this “very casual” challenge is intended to help us “work together to read blog posts, share them, comment on them, and boost book bloggers in other ways.” I try to do this anyway, but I’m all in favor of some reminders and community support.
Briana includes 12 ideas for supporting book bloggers on the challenge page. There’s no need to do them in order, so I’m going to pick and choose. This month, as it’s a new year, I intend to find 10 new-to-me blogs to follow. I’ll keep track of them here:
EDIT: rather than adding MORE blogs to my already overstuffed feed, I’ve decided to give a shout-out to the last 10 blogs I’ve followed. If I can remember what
Find 10 New-to-you Book Bloggers to Follow
Follow 10 new book blogs. They don’t need to be new blogs, just new-to-you. Optional: write a post, create a Twitter thread, etc. sharing their URLs with others.
- Reader’s High Tea – I connected with a review of The Mountains Sing, one of my favorite reads of 2020.
- Lioness at Large – ThemisAthena encouraged me to read Die Kleine Hexe last year, for which I thank her.
- Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau – How could I resist a blog with this title?
- cas d’interet – “Reflections of a Francophile” are always of interest to me.
- Gallimaufry Book Studio – simply lovely book and art reviews and musings.
- Plucked from the Stacks – one of the hosts of Nonfiction November last year
- Unsolicited Feedback – also discovered this largely nonfiction blog through NonFicNov.
- nicktomjoe – Musings on landscape and fantasy especially drew me to this one.
- Wordy Witterings – frequent reviews, lots of books that look appealing.
- Lisa notes … – thoughtful reflections on books, life and spirit
Will you join in the challenge? How would you like to support book bloggers this year? Or what kind of support do you most appreciate?
