Expanding Horizons

Because I don’t read enough book blogs on a weekly basis (yeah right) I am interested in discovering some book blogs I may have overlooked.  Maybe your blog doesn’t come up in the usual Google search or you are new to the book blogging universe.  I would love for you to ‘introduce yourself’ here in the comment section for this post and link back to your own blog(s).  Planet Books averages 100 hits a day (which may not be much for some of you but I am happy to have them) so you could get some new traffic too from those people who don’t know about your blog either. 

I love reading your blogs and though I fell off the blogging and commenting wagon for a while there last summer and fall, I’m hungry for more and love to discover your recommendations for what to read.  Below are a few of the book blogs that I frequent.  On the right of the screen under “Friends of Planet Books” you can find more links too.

A New Goal

For some reason, I have found it extremely challenging to keep up with all my Google Reader subscriptions (and I keep adding more subscriptions weekly) and I haven’t ever been good at responding to your wonderful comments on this blog.  I’m trying to change all of that.  I am working my way through the backlog of book blogs on my GR this week and hope to be able to get it down to just reading the daily feeds every morning instead of the plethora of week old feeds maybe once a week.  I’m also going to comment more frequently on your great blog posts. 

If you noticed in my last post, I responded to each of your comments.  Thank you for leaving them.  I’m going to attempt to be more interactive with you as you leave comments.  I really love the “friends” I have made throughout the book blogging community and hope to become a louder voice in it myself as time goes on. 

Do you find that these are challenges you face too?  Do you approach reading book blogs kind of like a fun job and set aside a specific time of day for going through them?
