#ShelfLove Challenge 2016
We’re co-hosting the #ShelfLove challenge again this year so join us and read more of the books you already bought!
September’s topic: It’s Be Kind to Writers and Editors Month! Write a thank you post to your favorite person (or people) in the publishing industry.
Julie’s Challenge Update:
To all the Authors who make our hearts pound, our brains act, and our souls soar.
For all the words on pages that we read or hear.
For the covers we admire.
For the characters, we wish we could meet. For all the heartbreak and love we endure beside them.
For the dangers and adventures. For the lives and the deaths.
For the magic experienced or the lessons learned.
Thank you for your words. Thank you for your stories.
Thank you for your inspiration. Thank you for writing.
Signed, a book lover.
As for the challenge, I’m not doing so well. Very little progress on my end over here. I’ve been doing too many review books this month.
Lynn’s Challenge Update:
Dear [Insert Author Name Here],
For the romance. For the adventure. For the window into another world.
For the vicarious travel. To other countries. To other planets. To other times.
For the characters I want to be best friends with. And the characters I love to hate.
For the “sick days” I’ve stayed home to finish you book. <cough> <cough>
For the laughs. For the swoons. For the crying. For the screaming anger.
I know we readers don’t always express it enough, but we appreciate you. And wouldn’t be here without you and all the lovely books.
This whole Shelf Love Challenge is difficult! I’m up to 14 books. But like Julie, between book club books and reviews, I’m struggling. Yes, I’m reading books I own. But the books are always ones I’ve just purchased/received. I really need to stop borrow books from the library and read my own books!
