(An Unbirthday Cake which easily could
have been my blog's anniversary cake,
now that I think about it.)
My reading has changed over the years, both in part because of blogging and life events. I am a more careful reader now, I think, than before I began blogging, and my reading has become more varied. I discovered reading challenges and accept books for review. I read books you have recommended, even ones outside my comfort zone. I still read for me. I still look for those connections in books between the story and characters and my own life, no matter how different we may seem. I read for pleasure and to learn and to feel and to hope and to grow. To be entertained and even escape. To understand. To reflect on life and also to expand my horizons. That has not changed. I am not a prolific reader like some of you, but I am no slouch either (as compared to the national average), but my love for books and reading has not diminished over my lifetime, and definitely not since I began blogging nine years ago.
I do not know what the future holds, other than I am determined to make it to my tenth blog anniversary. There are days I think that will be it for me and Musings of a Bookish Kitty, and other days when I cannot imagine giving up blogging at all.
Thank you for letting me into your lives and taking the time to visit my blog. You all are what makes blogging worthwhile.
First Paragraph Girl Waits With Gun:
What do you think? Would you keep reading?
What are you reading at the moment? Is it anything you would recommend?
