Letter #1 -To The Book Blogging Community

Leave a Comment

I have always loved letters since I was a child, and I always found them easy to write, so I had the idea a while ago that every week or so I could write a letter to someone whether they are fictional or not and tell them what they mean to me. I hope I can do this and not chicken out of it in a few weeks. So my first letter is to anyone who reads this, but mostly its to the book blogging community.

Letter #1 - To the Book Blogging Community

To all the book lovers in the Book Blogging community whether that is booktube or bookblogs. You have created a part of the internet where people can talk, discuss, rant argue and love books without any kind of prejudice which is the most amazing things I have ever had the pleasure to see.

I have loved books ever since I can remember, and growing up my love for books grew however I felt like I had to hide my love for books because it wasn't "cool" to be a bookworm which I was, I mean my friends knew I read books, but they thought I meant like a book a months or something not nearly two books a week which I actually did. It was only until I went into Sixth Form when I could actually show my deep love for books as I was studying English Literature and could be passionate about books in class and talk about books freely, this helped me a lot because I knew I didn't need self conscious about how much I loved books and how much I wanted to be a writer when I was older. 

Flash forward three years and I am in university studying English Literature and Creative Writing, and then whilst mindlessly scrolling through tumblr and youtube,I discover youtubers who talk about books, and I couldnt stop watching, and then I found book blogs. I had found an amazing community who loved books and were proud to call themselves book lovers and I fell in love with the community so I started my own blog in the may of this year and starting posting my thoughts on books. When I started this blog I was so happy to be so nicely welcomed into this community and for other book bloggers/ booktubers being so sweet and so helpful it was the best thing I could ever have asked for. This blog has given me the chance to talk to people who love books as much as I do and the people I have met becuase of it are the nicest people I could ever have had the pleasure to have met and talked to,  also in my short time i have seen the community go through some highs and lows but they always stick together and fight for each other which I am so proud of them for. So I just wanted to say to the book blogging/ booktubing community Thank you, you have helped a very shy book lover come out of her shell and share her love of books and her mind with anyone who is willing to listen, and this is all to this amazing community, so finally Thank you Book Blogging Community for everything
