So I’ve had this idea brewing in my head for a while now, but I want to know what you, my readers, have to say.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that I’m an independent bookseller at a small bookshop in Northeast Ohio (which is currently up for sale and you should make a donation here to help my manager put the deposit on her business loan so that she can keep it from becoming a soulless name-brand clothing store!!). So, I spend a lot of my time around books. I love them.
In a way, they’ve become a major part of my life. I also know that there are quite a few of you out there who also love books, some of you are even authors, and I’m so jealous of that fact because I wish I could finish just one of the few books I’ve started writing, but that’s a different story for a different day. Nobody needs to read my works of fiction… my factual life is already sometimes too much to handle!
So now I’m toying around with this idea of doing a monthly book review here on my blog. I know, I know: you all come here for laughs about how my dog shit himself or when my mother asks me for assless chaps, but I think there is a little room for some book-talk, don’t you?
Around the same time that I started this blog, I had also started one just for reviewing books, but I got so swept up in this one, and no one was really reading my other one, so I shut it down. Now, however, I think that it might be a nice little feature. You know, just something on the side from all the hilarity that you come here for.
The way I was doing it before was this:
You all suggest what you want me to read next, I then pick one of those books at random and I read it and review it for you all, and then the process repeats every month. This way, you guys get to participate, and I get to read books I might never have picked up without you telling me to. It’s kind of fun for everybody! (If you’re into that kind of thing, which I am!)
So… feedback? Tell me what you think! I won’t do it if no one is interested, but I thought I might throw it out there!
Have a great Tuesday, everyone!
