Google+ The Introverted Reader: Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

Friday, July 2, 2010

Welcome, and thanks for stopping by my blog!

The idea of the Hop is to network and find cool blogs you might not have found otherwise. Hop on over to Crazy-for-Books and join in the fun!

Our lovely hostess has asked us to answer a question each week in order for us to get to know each other better.  This week's question is, "Tell us your NAME and WHY YOU STARTED BLOGGING."

I'm one of the 14 bazillion Jennifers in this world. You'll sometimes see me sign something as Jen(nifer) G., JG, or IntrovertedJen. I mostly started blogging because of Misty at Book Rat. She started linking to her blog in her GoodReads reviews and I liked what she was doing there. Before that, I hadn't realized that book blogs even existed! Now here I am, and I love doing this!

I read practically anything fiction, but mostly fantasy, historical fiction, YA fantasy, and Southern lit.  I host a meme every Thursday, Character Connection, where we spotlight our favorite characters, and would love to have you join in the fun!  I'm currently hosting a Laptop Messenger Bag Giveaway thanks to CSN Stores.  I recently passed 250 followers, so to celebrate that and my upcoming birthday, I'm having a big giveaway! You can win all three of Gail Carriger's books or four of my favorite historical fiction books. If Book Depository ships to you, you're eligible to win!
