Recruiting Readers

Aside from being an avid blogger, I am also an avid reader. I have always loved to read, but became committed to it once I became a SAHM. Last year I gave myself the ambitious goal of reading 50 books in the year. I failed... Miserably. I only made it to 33. I mean, 33 isn't anything to be ashamed of. That's pretty dang impressive in itself... But never-the-less, i didn't meet my goal.

This year I decided to be more realistic about my goal and read 35 books. And so far I'm doing great. Right on track with about 28 books down.

So last year when my personal challenge began to take shape, I decided to blend my two hobbies... Blogging about books! I joined the team at The Book Nook and became one of their book bloggers! (find the link on the left bar).

The Book Nook is a collaborative blog with several contributors. We blog about books we read for fun, but more than that, it's an avenue for new books to become noticed. Publishers and authors contact us and provide us with a free copy of their work in return for an honest review. Free books!

Now The Book Nook is in need of more reviewers. We've had a few people leave, and we've also been overwhelmed with the amount of incoming work. Too many books and not enough people to read them! I myself am a little overwhelmed at the moment. I have 4 books in my "to be read" stack that need reviews before the years end. And sometimes publishers ask that you post on a specific date for their blog tour... I've got two of those coming up!

So, if you have a book addiction and would like to join our little club, please leave me a comment with your email address. We're recruiting readers! Come on, you can feed your habit for free! That's good news! Help keep The Book Nook alive!
