Feature & Follow Friday

Hi welcome to Follow Friday! Let me tell you what is going on today.  First PJV will be featuring one blogger from this great community each Friday along with having the Follow My Book Blog feature. Each week one blogger will be selected as a feature, so sign up for the Follow Feature.




PJVs Friday Featured Blog
The Unread Reader








Hi Missie...tell us a bit about your reading addiction...

As a kid, I read all the time, and I was even a 'library helper,' you know, where you get to school early just to help put books back in their place. I remember being so proud to have been picked for the job from a group of willing volunteers.  But in high school and college, I lost touch with reading for pleasure; if it wasn't 'required reading' I didn't have time for it.  There was even a period in my life when I was studying so much that I actually considered reading as being stressful.  Once I finished my graduate degree, I wanted a break from anything having to do with words on paper.  But slowly, I started picking up books again.  All kinds of books, a variety of genres, and I realized how much I missed reading and how much I enjoyed it. 

After that, I felt so unread and decided I wanted to do something about it.  So I jumped back into reading with a renewed passion by joining a local book club and even taking some literature courses.  Now that I've learned more, I feel like there is nothing I won't try when it comes to genres.  Yes, I love and probably even favor PNR and UF, but I also really like non fiction, contemporary, YA, mystery, humor, and of course, I can't forget the classics.  Now it feels like with each book I read, I'm developing relationships with stories, some meaningful, some as a passing fancy, and I'm loving it!

    Oh dear. I just realized that while I discovered & followed this blog last evening through the Hop, I never commented to say hi & how much I appreciate your blog.

    I am a bad, bad person -- and it is no longer Friday, but I decided I would say hi since by rights I found you through BH/FF. So, apologies for the late post.

    And I DO appreciate your blog. I'm a very new blogger, and this site is amazingly helpful -- and genuinely nice.

    Thank you very much!

    Lily
