Booking Through Thursday: Bloggers

A weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. Hosted at Booking Through Thursday.

Today's question is:
What do you look for when reading a book blog? Does the blogger have to read the same genre? Do you like reviews? Personal posts? Memes? Giveaways? What attracts you to a book blog?

At first when I was starting out I would have to admit yes it was because of giveaways.  But now usually it's meme's which attract me to blogs and then if I like what I see I try and get the email or become a follower.  I love reading other bloggers reviews especially if it's something I myself have read.  If it's something I want to read sometimes I'll check it out if I don't mind possible spoilers.  If someone has a personal post especially someone I actually follow I will always read it because it's nice to see something more than just reviews etc on their pages, after all we are all human and stuff happens.  In regards to genre, yeah usually someone who reads the same but a meme is a meme regardles of your genre so I'll always check those out. 

Sometimes I wonder if anyone ever reads my reviews but I write them anyway because that's what I like to do, hehe.  I blog because I like to blog and I wish I could do more but I do as much as I can. 

How about you?

I like what you said about "I blog because I like to blog." That kind of defines me...and you can tell, since I have a LOT of blogs.

It's always good to blog mainly because you want to. I type my reviews and memes because I want to, regardless if there are people reading them or not. Of course it's nice to get responses, but that's not the main point.
Thx for stepping by my blog!

I also blog for my own entertainment, and I write my reviews to help me remember what I've already read. I started to do this after I bought a few books I had already read before.

I like the memes, and reviews.

Thanks for visiting my Reading Corner today.

I love reading reviews, personal posts, giveaways and thoughts about what kind of books and why they read it? I have a personal preference in reading but I still read other blogs. I don't have a blog myself because I suck at writing reviews. I don't comment much on blogs either but I read them.
