I’m a person who’s long enjoyed reading, discussing those books with others is my idea of a good time. A few years ago, a friend encouraged me to start a bookstagram account on Instagram and I had no idea what she was talking about. But now I’m here with a blog, too, something I never planned to do.
It’s been just over 2 years and I’m still finding my way on bookstagram. To my great surprise, I’ve discovered a community of book lovers enthusiastically chatting about books, what their reading, and making recommendations. I’ve made many bookish friends and I feel right at home. Bookstagram has been a creative way to connect and share my thoughts with fellow book enthusiasts. I also discovered some wonderful ‘teaples’ (my tea buddies on teastagram too, find me here on Instagram)
Fast forward to 2018 and I’ve decided to step out of my comfort zone and give blogging a try. I hope this will be an opportunity to increase engagement with fellow readers while challenging me to do something fun and creative.
The name of this blog is ‘Books by the Cup’. I’ve enjoyed reading since my aunt gave me a book (probably a bit too adult for me) as a youngster that was 100% funny, but changed the way I saw books. Since that time, I’ve had an insatiable desire to read as much as I can, to make it a part of my life. I enjoy a variety of genres, especially classics and historical fiction. But that’s just part of the story. The ‘cup’ part of the name is derived from my favorite beverage, tea. My passion for tea emerged about 4 years ago and I drink a lot of tea EVERY SINGLE DAY. So combine a good book and some tea and you have me.
You’ll notice a theme; each picture will usually have a cup of tea, hence the name of the blog, books by the cup.
Please join me as I share with you ‘Books by the Cup.’ I’m excited to see where this will go.
“All you need are books and tea.”
