    Carrie, I’m so sorry we’re just getting around to thanking you. This is the first time we’ve seen this. From our hearts, we feel honored and THANK YOU!!! xoxo ❤ ❤

    Thank you, Carrie, for including me on your list 🙂
    It’s so wonderful to see a blogger support other bloggers. You’ve inspired me to do the same.
    Thank you also for the awesome and generous review you gave my book on Amazon and Goodreads.
    I’ve started to be on Goodreads but am overwhelmed with it all. Hopefully, I’ll get it all sorted out.
    I feel so privileged to be part of your blogging community.

      It was my pleasure, Carol. I had planned on finishing my book club’s book before starting yours, but I’m having such a hard time plowing through it, I needed something light. Yours was perfect, and I easily finished it in a couple sittings.

      I like Goodreads, but it took me a while to become more active in it. There’s still more I could do with it, but I’m getting there. 🙂


      • Carol Balawyder

        What book are you reading for your book club?

        Yes, I do intend to become more active on Goodreads…eventually. Right now I have to take care of my tax form on Amazon so that my books can be sold in Europe. Taking care of business is not my favorite activity.


        • Carrie Rubin

          I hear you. Not as much fun as the writing part.

          We’re reading The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman. I know I should like it, but it’s really not my cup of tea. Certainly some great history I’m learning, though.


          • Carol Balawyder

            I don’t think we “should” like any book. One thing about book clubs though is that it forces us to read books we wouldn’t otherwise pick up. Sometimes we like them; other times we don’t. But I also think it’s worthwhile to know why we don’t like a book. I think that makes us better writers in that we become more in touch with what we like to write about and our own style.


    • Carrie Rubin

      I loved your book! I should really put some blurbs and such on this book page, but the lists grow so long, I’d end up with 10 Books by Bloggers Pages! I should go back and link to everyone’s blog though. Haven’t done that yet, but I figure people can always access the author’s blog through the Amazon author profile since I’ve linked to the book.

    I’m honored to be on your list, Carrie. Again, thank you for reading.

    I wanted to read more books by bloggers last year, but I simply couldn’t find the time. How do you fit reading in? Are there specific times during the day when you read? I find if I want to read a book, I have to set several hours aside and just read it, or I might never get back to it.


    • Carrie Rubin

      I read every day on my lunch break for about 45 minutes and then again in the evening when I walk on the treadmill. My treadmill walks are great for reading bloggers’ books because most are e-books, and I can easily prop up my iPad to read the kindle version. Still, sometimes I get too busy, and it can take a while to finish a book!
