I am very new to blogging...both reading blogs and doing my own blog, but I have quickly grown to LOVE both.
Before I joined the blogging community, I read mostly adult classics, children's classics, and historical fiction. Those genres are still my favorites but my eyes have been opened to so many great books, and I now see what I've been missing by being such a book snob.
I do a blog post called "Ten Books I Thought I'd Never Read", and that was totally inspired by the realization that I've been missing out on some great books because I thought they just weren't for me. I came to that realization through reading other people's blogs and through doing research for my own blog.
Another way my reading has changed is that I read with a purpose now. I'm reading with a book review in mind. I try to be aware of wonderful quotes from a book, or interesting places or people to research from a book. I look for anything new or different that I might be able to blog about. So in that way, I feel I'm getting more out of my reading now.
