IsThisBookForMe…what does that mean anyway?  Why should I read your blog?

Ask yourself, dear reader, how many times do you pick up a book and ask yourself “is this book for me?”  How many times do you read the description or download a sample and then sit there and still question as to whether the book is really for you?  How many reviews can you read before you decide to take a chance and buy, borrow or download that book?  That’s the question I want to help answer for you.

Here’s a little about me.  I’m a self-admitted book addict.  I think my loved ones are wondering if there is such a thing as a Readers Anonymous meeting.  I’m just waiting for them to stage an intervention!  I had books crammed onto every available shelf and taking up space in closets and cupboards.  I regularly maxed out my limit of library books (and racked up late fees too!).  And then with the advent of e-readers and downloadable books, I quickly filled my Kindle to the point where I couldn’t remember what I wanted to read next or why I got that book in the first place!!  I’ve also been lucky enough to receive a few ARC’s through both Goodreads and NetGalley.  I wanted to have a place where I could post my reviews and share my thoughts on books so others could decide if that book is for them.

Most of the books I read are e-books but I do not shun the good, old-fashioned book.  I still love the smell of books and will still regularly go to bookstores both big and small.  Sometimes I’m able to read a book quickly, sometimes it takes me awhile.  I have a regular, full-time job and my family does expect to see me from time to time.  I’m going to try to review at least a book a week.  Sometimes I’ll have more, sometimes less.  But my goal is to have a review posted every week for something new.
