So, you enjoy reading, you definitely don’t want to start a book blog for any of these reasons and we’ve convinced you that you already have everything you need to start a book blog – because you know, you do!
Or… maybe you actually don’t want to start a book blog but want to join this awesome community in other ways – trust us you’ll be welcomed with open arms.

10. The community often has wonderful projects which raise money for charity
11. Or generous books which do the same – like the I’ll Be Home For Christmas anthology published this year
In a nutshell if you love YA books – especially UK ones (though the community often natters away about MG, picture and adult books + those books published elsewhere in the world) then we think you’ve got no excuse to grab yourself a Twitter account, follow a few of us and join in this wonderful community.
