Hi! I'm Carey and I love to read. I've been reading since I was a teenager. Back then I read mostly the mainstream, traditionally published authors like James Patterson, Kathy Reichs, John Grisham, and Janet Evanovich. I was not good at broadening my reading horizons beyond the authors I'd already read.
Then few years ago I received a Kindle for Christmas and soon discovered the online reading community. Before long I was one-clicking away and my Kindle now has hundreds if not thousands of books waiting to be read.
Then I discovered that you could befriend many authors on Facebook, Goodreads, and Twitter. I was amazed! I couldn't believe they would want to interact with little old me. I remember the first time an author who's book I had read liked one of my Facebook statuses. I was blown away!
I began reading book blogs and wanted a way to connect further with them. Sure I would occasionally leave a comment. But I wanted to participate in some of the features/memes I saw them doing and had no where to do this.
Next I was asked if I'd like to receive an ARC (Advance Reader Copy) of a book in return for my honest review. I posted my review on Amazon and Goodreads. But I wanted a way to get this book in front of more readers.
Thus Carey Reads was born.
With this blog I'm hoping to make friends among this great online book community, promote some great authors and books, and have fun!
