National Book Lovers Day

ImageI am writing this in honor of National Book Lovers Day. The pic is of what books I have been able to purchase since losing my entire collection in an arson fire (my collection, along with my home). It was a hard time and I am still getting over it, but the first thing I went to buy back were as many discounted/used books as money would allow.

I love books, I love to read and I love to write. I run this blog to write book reviews and give author interviews because I want to share the love of words with everyone I possibly can,

If you are an indie author, i want to get your name out there! If you are an established author, I want to post about how you influenced my life.

Since starting this blog, working with Dark Media Online and Books Make Me Happy, I have been blessed to be able to interact with authors who shaped my teen and adult years like Darren Shan, Terri Garey and Ellen Schreiber, plus more! I never once thought I would be able to have these oppoerunities to speak with, review and interview these people who inspired me.

Now, I want to inspire YOU. Get out there, buy a new book, discover a new author, get the word out there about your own work...just do something to help spread the love of words we all have here.

I started reading at about 2 and a half years old, no joke. I loved being read to as a kid. I started writing when I was eight years old, but composed my first poem at the age of three. By 14 I had finished a manuscript. Words--be they poetry, lyrics or especially books--have always been my refuge along with God.

I love that people are LIKING my posts on all the sites of which I am a part. It means a lot to have my appreciation of art appreciated by other art lovers. Thank you all.

  1. What a great post for National Book Lovers Day! It must have been so heart breaking to lose everything like that. I always enjoy reading your blog and your reviews. I remember being able to read at a very early age as well, I love reading books, especially Sci-Fi and Horror. Thank you for sharing your great reviews and interviews.

  2. Awww! Thank you so much for your kind words: they made my day! It was hard, the emotional damage is extensive, but I thank God my mom & I survived. I'm glad I can share the love of the written word! :)

  3. You are most welcome, I found your post very moving. Thank God you are all ok. Your love of books shines through in every review. Sure you will rebuild your book collection in time, you have some great titles already. Enjoy your weekend and have a great National Book Lovers Day!
