Discovering new book blogs with Weekly Geeks

Dewey, over at The Hidden Side of a Leaf started the Weekly Geeks this week, giving us book bloggers something new and interesting to either do or write about each week. I like this because it helps me to keep my blog update regularly (the same reason I love Booking Through Thursday). I have been better about keeping my blog updated lately, but I still haven't reached "daily" status yet and that's what I'm really shooting for (and only managed to do for the first week of this blog).

So this week, the assignment was to discover new blogs - five of them! This kept me busy because I wanted to list blogs that I really liked rather than just listing any old blog. I figure listing blogs that I enjoy and learn from will be more beneficial for people who read my blog as well, yes? Yes.

And here they are:

Stephanie's Confessions of a Book-a-Holic
- I like that Stephanie lets her personality our in her blogs and I love that she covers some book news as well as writing reviews. Oh, and she loves the library which makes me heart her even more.

Everyday Reads - From what I've read of Lighthearted's blogs, I think we have similar tastes in books. I'll definitely be checking back to get book suggestions from her.

The Literate Kitten - This is a fun blog and also has interesting news bits about books which makes my heart smile in a big way.

Passion for the Page - This blogger is super organized with her challenges. I'm only doing two and I'm not doing so hot on completing them. Also, I like her review style, giving the book stats at the beginning. It's a great feature.

Reading Reflections - Laura is another fun book blogger with an interesting selection of books. I've found lots of new books for my reading list on her page.

I'm still working on my blog updating regularity, too ;>)! As I looked through blogs this weekend, I discovered the Booking Through Thursdays you mentioned. I think I'll take a shot at that this Thursday. I'm not sure I'll ever be a daily blogger (there just aren't enough hours in the day), but I'd at least like to post a couple of times a week!

Thanks for stopping by (and listing) my blog this week. I've enjoyed visiting yours, too. And now that you're in my reader, maybe I'll be able to keep up!

Happy reading,
~Kristi (Passion for the Page)

Wow. Here I am discovering new blogs, and I see that you discovered me first!! Thanks for stopping by!!

I really love your blog!! I saw that you have A Fine Balance on your list for the Chunkster challenge. Fantastic book. I read it last month!! And I love your idea for a book club. May have to take that into consideration!

Heart smiles - I love it! Thanks so much for including me here. Can't wait to visit your blog in the future, and hope to see you at Literate Kitten again...(Geez, I need to actually finish some more books to write about them!!!)

Hi Becca, I'm here from Weekly Geeks. I've read several of the books on your 52 books challenge. Did you like Songs Without Words? I loved it...

I chose your blog as one of my "new weekly geek favorites" :)

Hi Becca! Oops, I thought I already left my comment here. Thank you again for visiting my blog! I'll surely drop by here as often as I could and hopefully peruse the archives as well.

Out of topic but I scanned your post on Ali and I've been meaning to read her book after watching a feature or two on her on cable sometime back. So I guess I'll search your archives for that too!

Have a lovely weekend to you!

This sounds like something fun to do! I'll try and do it on my blog as well.

Btw, a HUGE Mother’s Day Book Giveaway is currently happening on my blog. Hope you’ll stop by.
