Vlog & Blog Hop

Let the long weekend commence :D

It's time for The Blogger Hop again. This meme is hosted by Jennifer of Crazy-for-Books every Friday. She created it to give bloggers and readers a chance to network, support each other and find new blogs to read & enjoy.

The answer to today's question is:

We are Isalys & Vanessa and we truly are book soulmates! We started blogging in May 2009 at at the encouragement and guidance of our fellow bloggy friend Nely from All About {n}. She had told us all about her blog and how much fun she had with is and how many free books she had gotten. Of course, the words "free and books" in the same sentence piqued our interest. It wasn't until we actually became bloggers that we realized it's so much more than free books. It's a great way to share our love of reading with others who love it as much as we do. It's also helped us refine our reading tastes and become acquainted with some amazing authors we otherwise would not have known about.

I guess you can say that our blog is like our love child now! It's a lot of work, but so worth it.
