Book blogger hop: book club bloggers

I’m joining in with Billy at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer‘s book blogger hop again this week, where they post a question which you and other bloggers answer, hopping from blog to blog to see people’s answers. This week, the question is…

Do any of your book club members have a blog? Do you compare notes if they do?

The answer to this (and it’s a short one this week!) is yes and no.

One member of my book club does have a blog, a really good one, but it’s not a book blog.  So, whilst we regularly talk about books when we meet – in and outside of book club – we rarely talk about blogs.

We did initially as we both set up at the same time and both use wordpress and we might occasionally talk about something the other has posted but neither of us does it for more than a hobby and neither is more or less an expert than the other.  The same with social media.

So, once the initial thrill and excitement – the “oh my god, I’ve started a blog” moment died down, so did the discussions.  Now it is part of our lives and something mentioned in passed.

What about you, do your friends have blogs – book related or otherwise – and do you compare notes?



  1. I don’t really know anyone in RL with a blog either (that I know of!) but several people have expressed interest. And I do have a local book club that meets at a doughnut/ coffee place, but I haven’t joined yet. I have been thinking about it… it looks like a nice sized group.


  2. I don’t think I know anyone in person who has a blog. Online–yes, but no one in person. Oh, wait! My husband. But then, he doesn’t really blog anymore so I’m not sure he counts.

    Thank you for sharing! I hope you have wonderful week!


      • He wasn’t a book blogger, but we did talk about our blogs and our posts. As it is, he still reads most of my book reviews before I post them and he follows my blog. 🙂

  3. I’m in the same boat, friends that write blogs but not about books. Do you find other types of communication methods to discuss books outside of book club? I get into a world of trouble with text messaging. Do you all review on Goodreads, talk over Skype, or chat while reading it in group chats? Thanks for sharing!
