Book Blog

Tell us a little bit about one of your favorite blog features…

Sydney: I have thoroughly enjoyed joining and participating in First Line Fridays.  This has increased the interaction between my readers and me and I love it!

First Line Fridays first meeting

It originally was started by Reading is My SuperPower and Bookworm Mama, Faithfully Bookish, and my blog, SLB joined in the fun. We now have 13 bloggers on board participating and it is so much fun!

Beth: YES! FLF is a great excuse to talk about books and grow our to-be-read stacks (or piles, or planets)! Awww, look at us! ????

Tell us a little bit more about your blog…

Sydney: After moving to a new city in a new state, SLB was born in April 2015 when a stay-at-home avid reader-librarian wanted to start a new reading adventure.  The goal of SLB is to promote clean content, to help authors get the word out about their books, and for readers to discover fun and new authors and books.

It is also SLB’s 2nd birthday this month and there is a grand prize giveaway running through the end of the month.  You can enter the giveaway!

Beth: Congratulations on TWO years of blogging, Sydney!

Sydney: SLB Tours, launched in November 2015, was born when a need arose for quality and affordable book tours for authors.  The mission statement of SLB Tours is “To provide affordable and quality events for authors/publishers and to promote family-friendly fiction to readers.”

Beth: I love this! I’m proud to participate in SLB tours 🙂

Sydney: Also, something cool about the logo is that it was designed (with ideas and feedback from myself) by one of my friends, Sharilyn Shumway.  You can learn more about her here.

  1. Congrats Sydney!!! And Erin!! I enjoy reading both your thoughts on books 🙂 My favorite childhood book is called The Teeny Tiny Woman. Read it do much the book is almost falling apart. My grandmother used to read it to me and I loved her sound effects. It’s what started my love for reading!!

  5. Hi Beth and Sydney–two of my favorite people in one spot! Congrats on your blogiversaries! One of my favorite childhood stories was The Secret Garden.


  6. Congrats Sydney! Love these posts ???? I’ve already said Anne with an ‘e’ is a favourite, along with Enid Blyton’s Faraway Tree series. Maybe this time I’ll add Chronicles of Narnia to the list. ????


  7. Woohoo!!!! Sydney!!! Great having you here! And loved getting to hang out with you at CFRR! Looking forward to many more memories!


  8. Beth & Sydney, you don’t know how blessed I feel having discovered you and all your blog friends, not just as a new author but as a reader who has neglected her first love too long, partly because I don’t have time to “experiment” with books. There is nothing as frustrating as investing hours in an unfulfilling book. Now my frustration has shifted…I have too many options! 🙂 From the author perspective, you ladies who participated in the blog tour for WAITING FOR BUTTERFLIES made all the difference! You introduced me to soooo many reader friends who became my website, blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest friends. I know you LOVE what you do…but I also hope you know what a difference you make!
