A Q&A With Yours Truly

Last Tuesday, I had the honor of being featured on WordPress’s Daily Post blog.

They featured a Q&A with me about how I came up with the 101 Books idea and how I’ve slowly developed my blog and grown the readership over the last three years.

Obviously, 101 Books would’ve never have grown without people to make it grow. So thank you guys for reading.

I thought I’d share the first question and answer with you guys. Then, you can visit the Daily Post blog to read the entire article.

WHEN DID YOU CREATE 101 BOOKS? WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL GOAL, AND ARE YOU HAPPY SO FAR WITH THE RESULT?

I started 101 Books in August 2010 while I was trying to pick some books to take on a Labor Day beach vacation. While researching online, I stumbled across the Time list and the idea came to me.

When I started the blog, I never envisioned it’d become what it is today. Honestly, I thought I’d post every couple of weeks with a review of a book I’d just finished. But, for me, my book reviews are the least enjoyable posts to write. I started digging into the little nuances of each book — picking out passages, writing about the author, discussing the movie version of the book — and those are the posts I really enjoy, and that’s how today’s blog format eventually took shape.

To read the full Q&A, head over to The Daily Post.

Thanks again for reading 101 Books!
