TGIF (A Book Blogger is Born) & Book Blogger Hop #3

Friday is the day of following, friendship and questions in the book blog world. This week I am taking part in two further blog hops! TGIF is run by Ginger at GReads and the Book Blogger Hop is run by Jen at Crazy for Books. Look forward to getting to meet & know you my fellow book bloggers :-)

Q - A Book Blogger is Born: What made you decide to start your very own book blog?

A -  I started book blogging on the 18th July 2010. I have loved to read since I was 5 years old and had been writing reviews of the books I'd read on Amazon then Goodreads for several months which had lead me to start reading blogs. I loved the community and seeing what everyone else was reading and thought so I decided to start my very own blog. At that time I already had a personal blog I'd been keeping since 2007 (I no longer have that blog, it has gone into retirement!)

I blogged for about 10 months then unfortunately life got in the way and I hardly posted for about 8 months, this lead to my blog (then known as Magic Faeries Paranormal Review) stalling but not quite dying. Then about 3 months ago I resurrected my blog and feel like I have come home :-) I have also renamed my blog to something I feel fits both me and the books I blog about better - so Eternally Books came about and is wonderful!

I love blogging!!! In addition to Eternally Books I am developing two blogs/websites which will be launching in the next couple of weeks!. My new business website 
(Blossom Your business) which focuses on blogging, design, marketing and social media for small businesses owners and work from home professionals. And I am also putting together a book tours site (Eternal Book Tours) and a site specialising in blog design for book bloggers.

Q - How many books do you own? This can include books in your to-be-read (TBR) pile(s) and books you have already read that are on your keeper shelf.

A - Oh wow it's a lot, maybe too many!!!  I think I have around 500 novels on my various bookshelves (I have sold or given away as many in my life at least!). I also have a growing collection of ebooks, I think I have about 150 now. Okay that's just the fiction!

I love books and have around another 400 non-fiction titles. They are on design, writing, health, history, philosophy, genealogy, blogging, wordpress, yoga, self development, coding, business, learning Spanish/French/German and much more. Did I mention I love reading non-fiction almost as much as fiction?
