What else could B stand for on a writers blog. I have to say my TBR pile continues to grow at an ridiculous rate and I have to say I blame my kindle. Now that may seem a strange thing to say but the TBR pile on the kindle is invisible it is easy to lose track of just how many books you have one there, especially with so many freebies to be had, it is easier to put in your bag therefore the TBR pile of paper copies remains static gathering dust until an offer in the supermarket or a book by a favourite author results in purchases to increase the pile in its quest to reach the ceiling. And if I am honest mine could actually reach it around three times and be well on its way for a fourth.
Like wise blogs fill my inbox not because I don’t like reading them but rather because I love reading what my fellow authors are doing and am constantly hitting the follow button for new people I cross paths with, there are so many interesting people that the internet allows us to connect with that we never would have met back in the days before hashtags and email.
People have questioned whether in this age of technology the old paper format of the book is doomed but I think there is certainly space for both, in our computer driven world we can meet new authors try out their work, but there will always be a place for taking down that old familiar friend from the shelf and curling up in a lovers embrace with it.
