New Blog Feature: Rewind & Review!


With the new year beginning, I've taken the time to reflect more on what I want to accomplish as a reader and a blogger.  After my good friend Lisa mentioned on her blog about wanting to focus more on older book titles, it got me thinking I want to do more of the same.  As a reviewer I tend to get caught up in all the shiny new book releases, which results in a mile-high-pile of books that keep accumulating over time.  So with this new feature, and the help of Lisa, we've come together to create REWIND & REVIEW.

At the beginning of each month we will set aside a few "older" books to be read & reviewed on our blogs.  I encourage all of you to join in and do the same each month.  There's just a few easy-peasy guidelines/objectives to follow:
  • The book(s) needs to be published in 2010 or earlier.
  • Set a goal for the month on how many books you'd like to read & use the feature title "Rewind & Review" in your reviews.
  • If you use the graphic, please provide credit back to mine or Lisa's blog.
  • Use this opportunity to have fun reading some long lost loves!

I want this feature to be laid back & fun.  No link-ups will be provided, and we won't punish you if you don't fulfill your reading goals for the month.  Being organized about my reading titles helps me & I hope it will do the same for you.  After all, older books need love too!

This new feature will officially kick off on February 1st with a post of the older books I plan to read for the month.  I hope you all will join in with us!

  2. I'm not a blogger but an avid reader. I think this is a great idea. It'll maybe make people use their libraries more too. =) x

  7. That's a great idea!
    I'm always late on new releases, so my book reviews tend to be old anyway. :D

  15. I've been thinking the same thing, I love reading and reviewing new titles but I've started to feel that my blog is posting the same stuff as others sometimes. And I have so many older books I just love and want to share :)

  16. Sounds like a great idea. I have more than enough "older" books sitting on my shelves waiting for the day I'll get around to them. I will have to do something about that...
