I've seen a number of other blogs I enjoy taking part in the Book Blogger Hop and thought I would give it a try. It seems like a good way to connect with other bloggers and find some more books to add onto my growing reading list.
Part of the rule for this hop is to include my name and why I started blogging. My name is Alley and I started blogging because my boyfriend was tiring of me complaining that my English degree was going to waste but not doing anything about it. I love to read and thought a blog about reading would be a good place to exercise my atrophying writing skills. Rather than posting general reviews of the books I read I try to find a particular scene, character, line, theme, etc and discuss that.
