BBAW: First Treasure

It's officially here! Book Blogger Appreciation Week! This is my first year participating since I started my blog a couple weeks after the festivities last year so I am very excited to be a part of it and see what happens during the week. Since this is a week about appreciating book blogging we are going to be doing a lot of that this week so sit back and relax. There may not be a lot of book reviews this week but there will be a lot of fun!

Today, if this is the first year we are participating, we've been asked to talk about the very first book blog  we discovered and why we love it. Well that's easy for me. The very first book blog I discovered was Becky's A Book A Week. I love her blog because her reading pace matches mine, her taste is very similar to mine and some of the best books I've read have been recommendations from her. She keeps it simple, only writing book reviews but her review style is wonderful and to the point, always coming down to whether or not it's worth reading and frankly that's what I'm looking for in a review and I feel like she inspired me a lot. I have no idea if she knows at all that she was the very first blog I found. From her blog roll I was able to find many others and that opened up a whole world of wonderful and then I eventually started a blog of my own. Things do spiral that way sometimes but it all started one day with a google search about a book, and Becky's blog showing up and feeling like I had a bit of a kindred spirit out there, so thanks Becky and keep up the wonderful reviews.
