It’s day 8 of the challenge and we’re talking about our

Favorite Book Blogger Moment

So is it a big momentous moment like when you hit 1,000 followers (I’ll get there someday 🙂 )?  Or is it the exciting, little ones that happen often, like when you’re approved for an ARC you requested or when you open your mailbox and find an unsolicited ARC waving hello?  Those are definitely happy days, indeed. 

For me, my favorite moment wasn’t entirely a book blogger moment but the result of book blogging.  A year ago I started working at the Main Branch of our public library and I absolutely LOVE it.  I’m with my favorite books everyday.  I talk books and get paid to do it.  I’ve joined ALA and YALSA.  I attend online seminars put on by publishers.  The YA librarian listens to my feedback on books and orders books I recommend.  I’m very lucky!!  And I wouldn’t have made it down this crazy road if I hadn’t taken up blogging about books as a hobby.

So, maybe it’s not an actual “moment”.  If I HAD to pick a moment, it would be when I recommend a book, it’s ordered, and it’s already off the shelf and someone is reading it.  Yeah, that’s pretty cool. 

Thank you, book blogging!
