Q. "How many books do you own? This can include books in your to-be-read (TBR) pile(s) and books you have already read that are on your keeper shelf."
Ok...I actually counted and the answer is........ 140! That's just my TBR shelf. I don't usually keep very many books after I read them. I have maybe 25-30 keepers and that includes past Bible studies, a few self-help books, etc.
Q. "A Book Blogger is Born: What made you decide to start your very own book blog?"
Well. I think I could say that I started my blog as a creative outlet. In the Fall of 2009 (I think), my youngest was 1, my husband works swing-shift and it seemed like none of my adult friends had the same interest in talking books, quilts etc. So, I started my blog as a place to "talk" to others about the same interests that I have.
A side reason would have been to keep track of my reading and crafts. I used to keep a notebook with all that I read and projects I had completed. A blog makes it MUCH easier to go back and search for a certain recipe or event.
