That Amazing, No, Addicting Thing Called BookBub

Have you heard of BookBub yet? It’s a really nice resource if you’re looking for new books to read. It’s a great way to access books you might not consider. I was introduced to BookBub by a coworker who loves to read.

This website is a great tool for any bookworm. BookBub allows you to create a free account. From there you select your favorite book genres. Based on your choices, you will receive an email every day from BookBub with books suggestions based on the categories you selected. All the book suggestions are titles that have many reviews, and the best part is that these books range from $0-$2.99 in price. How about that for a great deal! It’s an amazing tool, and I enjoy reading the book descriptions and choosing new books to read that I might not otherwise consider reading. Sometimes books I really want to read show up in my BookBub email update. The other great thing is that they only send one email a day, and I never receive any other email from them. They do not flood your inbox. BookBub gets to the point because they know your time is precious and they know you want to read the next book.

What are you waiting for? Go to bookbub.com and sign up to receive your free daily email update. You’ll be happy you stopped and dropped to read this email. I promise!

Long Time, No Reading

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve blogged here. I wanted to blog regularly about different books that I’ve read. My goal for this blog was to share my personal opinions about books that I’ve read so others can decide if they would like to read some of those same books. My other goal was to help parents find books that might be good to share with their families. As a teacher and a new mother, that is my goal for this blog more than ever.

I want to share books that are fun, encouraging, uplifting, and helpful. Reading has been a passion of mine before I even started going to school. I have always loved books and reading.  I hope I can pass that on to my daughter. I’m already starting her own little collection of books, and I enjoy reading to her even at eight weeks old!

Since it has been about a year since I last wrote anything here, many things have happened. I began my second year of teaching, and it was a wonderful year. I learned so much right along with my students. I also got pregnant with our first child, and she was born (three weeks early) on July 6. She brings so much joy to our lives, and we couldn’t be happier. While I absolutely love teaching and watching my students learn and grow, we made the decision that I would stay home with our sweet baby this year. It was a decision that we thought about for quite a while, but I know it was the right thing for us. Now that I am home full-time, I am caring for my little one, and I would like to start blogging again. Although I have not been writing, I have not stopped reading. I am looking forward to sharing some of the great stories that I have read over the last year as well as some cool resources for finding new things to read. I’m thankful for the journey and the opportunity to share the things I love. I invite you to join me on this reading adventure!

It’s me, the bookworm

Hello,

I’m Rebekah, and I absolutely love to read. I have a passion for reading, and I want to share my passion for reading. I believe it is important that we read to our children when they infants and encourage them to read on their own as they grow. As adults and parents, we can foster reading in the next generation by reading on our time. I believe reading is not only educational, but it helps us be creative. We can enjoy reading fascinating stories about real people or make believe families that seem real. My goal with this blog is to bring you books you can share with each member of your family. I will feature books that appropriate for many age levels as well as reading levels (yes, there is a difference). I will also talk about how to promote good reading habits for families. Along the way, I will share things about myself as well. Get ready, and I hope you find this blog to informative and exciting.
