The Book Blogger Hop (6)

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books and runs from Friday to Sunday. The Hop is a fantastic way to get your blog noticed, and visit some other blogs that you didn't know about before. Head over and sign up and see what you can find!

Each week a different question will be added to the hop in order for conversations to occur, and for your followers to get to know you better. Here we go!

"Since Thanksgiving is coming up next week, let's use this week's Hop to 
share what we are most thankful for and what our holiday traditions are!"

Absolutely, 100% thankful for the health of my husband and girls! We were in a very scary rollover accident in October of 2008 and I thank God everyday that we made it out okay. Very cliche, but the accident changed my life. I enrolled in library school 2 months later and made my dream of being a librarian come true. Crazy what has to happen to make you open your eyes and get busy with life.

Follow Friday is hosted by the lovely Rachel at Parajunkee's View. Here is her question:

"How long have you been book blogging?"

Some of you may already know, but I started this blog in the summer of 2009 as part of my MLS degree. That's library talk! I had to blog about search strategies and book reviews. My early book reviews from 2009 are not tagged, but they are back there! So, I graduated in the summer of 2010 and have been blogging away since then. It's been hot and heavy around here since late August. ;)  

Leave me your answer and I will find you!

  10. I work at a children's hospital. After seeing that horrific picture of your munched vehicle, I totally agree with what you chose to be thankful for. Many, many times people don't end up so fortunate! :-)
