Ever since I was a little girl, my dream job has been to read for a living. After graduating from college I could have tried to get a job with a publishing company, but I never pursued it and my life moved in other directions.
I still think this would be a wonderful job (although I'd also really love to be a lighthouse keeper, but I don't think that job exists anymore). However, I still don't live in an area where there are publishing companies and I can't just pull up stakes and move as easily as when I was single.
But I am excited to announce a new transition for the Transitional-Woman!
My dream is sort of coming true, that is, although I'm not being paid for it (except in free books - who's complaining?), I have been given the opportunity to read and review three books on this blog in the near future. My chance to review two of these came about because of the Blogging A to Z Challenge. How cool is that?
The books are from genres I don't usually read, but I find myself eager to read something different for a change. Two of the books had online excerpts that sounded great, which is why I approached the authors asking if I could review them. One of the author's generously sent a copy of the first book in her series so I can read it first before reading book two for review.
Because I've had the chance to read hundreds of different blogs during the Challenge, I've discovered so many hard-working authors laboring over their books trying to get them published. I respect their efforts and wish these transitional men and women great success.
Today's letter is R in the Blogging A to Z Challenge
