Welcome to Bookish Blatherings, a Bad Bird Reads feature where I ramble about bookish or bloggerish things and hopefully you will join in on the discussion.
So, some of you might have noticed that I started writing reviews for the books I read before I started blogging. School and work have made it hard to read as many books as I use to. So it’s been nice to fall back on the books I have read long ago, and it helps that I remember a good amount of details of those books. I don’t know why, but I have a good memory when it comes to the things I read. I’d say I have been reading solid for the past 5-6 years and blogging for 3. I have read a year here and a year there off and on for all my life but things always got in the way. This is the first time I have kept up with my reading in a long time. Anyway, I am getting off topic.
Since I started writing reviews on my old books, I have been wondering what other bloggers do about this predicament. Since you guys started blogging, what have you done with all the books your read before? Did you review them in the beginning? Did you start blogging right when you started reading? Do you review your old books with the new ones? I think I have about 300 books I haven’t reviewed yet. And I have to assume some of you are in my same position. So, I am wondering…
How many years have you been blogging compared to how many years you’ve been reading?
What do you do with all those books you read before blogging? Review them or let them sit on your shelves?
