The Book Blogger Love-a-Thon is hosted by Kate's Tales of Books and Bands and Alexa Loves Books. It is a day dedicated to giving love to some of your favorite book blogs.
JC: How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
Alexis: I’ve been blogging since January 1, 2012. Wait. Since January 1, 2011. I actually had to go look it up. It feels like I just started yesterday. It is weird really how time flies.
So I used to vent to my husband about books that I didn’t like. He doesn’t read for fun and he was kind of tired of listening to me complain. One day, the hubby suggested I start a blog “or something” so I could talk about books. I thought it was a fantastic idea and when I started to look into it, I realized that there were tons of book bloggers out there and I wouldn’t be weird or anything. So I went for it.
JC: Who are some of your favorite authors?
JC: What are a few things on your bucket list?
Alexis: Gah! Bucket List. I want to go to travel to another country. I haven’t done that at an adult age. I want to really enjoy it. I really haven’t thought about it much other than that.
JC: Describe what your book shelf looks like?
Alexis: I wish I was at home because I’d take a picture (I’m a traveling fool). My bookshelf is in a stage of turmoil because I’m in the process of mailing books across every which way. I have sticky notes telling me where to send things and mailing envelopes stacked on top of books. I have bags and bags of books in front of my book case waiting to earn a spot onto the shelves. A picture would be so much better.
JC: What are your thoughts on books turned to movies?
Alexis: I love them! Not because they are better than the book or anything. I feel like the movies demonstrate that books are simply the best entertainment. The best movies come from books and they aren’t even as good as the real thing.
JC: What are some tips that you would offer to other bloggers?
Alexis: Network. Network. Network. The best part of blogging is the fun you have interacting with other bloggers. Blogging gets tough and stressful sometimes. It’s easy to get burnt out but relationships with other bloggers will get you through it. Don’t wait for them to come to your blog, go to theirs. Make friends! That’s my biggest tip, I think.
JC: Coffee? Tea? Soda? Or Hot Chocolate?
Alexis: Coffee & Tea: Coffee on days where I need to just get through the day (or life) and Tea on days I need to relax and enjoy life.
Thank you, Alexis, for answering a few of my questions :)
