What's your blog/website(s)?

Why do you blog/write?   I blog because I want to share the wonderful books I have read with others so they can be passionate about reading. 
What do you hope to accomplish with blogging? By blogging, I want to bring the joy of reading to others and also have some fun talking to most wonderful folks on the web....reading bloggers.  Reading bloggers are the helpful and so passionate.
