I was a voracious reader as a child and continue to love reading. It was an escape as well as a true pleasure to learn and have fun on my own terms. Reading was – and still is – a very special activity for me.
The world expands through reading and it is an activity that I would not trade for the world.
Which is why I am especially excited to share with you that as I have now completed my first book, I was able to claim a profile on goodreads.com as an author! If you are on goodreads and would like to connect with me there, please do! Here is my Author Profile link: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/19829560.Jay_Jasper
It’s a perfect place if you are a reader like me who finds joy in a good book and wants to share it with others. And as any reader knows – you can always use more books to read!
So if you love reading like I do, consider connecting with me on goodreads.
You can also get a copy of my book right from our website here.
Favorite books as a kid?
OMG! I was such a nerd. When I was very young I used to love the Choose Your Own Adventure books, Babar, and of course everyone’s favourite doctor – Dr. Seuss. What were some of your favourites?
I’m a voracious reader too, and know exactly what it’s like to have nothing to read when you want to lose yourself in a good book!!!
I do not think I will have that problem anymore now that I have signed up for goodreads! I already found my next book to read there! I hope you are well and having a wonderful weekend!
Congrats Jay on your author profile on goodreads!
My favorite place to be is in a bookstore.
(Lock me up and throw away the key and I would be completely happy!)
Happy reading, Jay. 🙂
Thank you Margie! I love bookstores and antique stores. Another favourite place for me is laying in a hammock on a sunny day and reading a good book as the sun shines on my skin! I hope you have an awesome weekend Margie!
Reading is indeed a wonderful hobby! I like it a lot, myself. 😃 And congratulations on the book! I just followed you on GR, and added your book to my list. I’m excited to give it a read!
Thanks for your kind words! I will have to check out what you are reading on GR! I am so excited to have a new place to find more books! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far!
You’re so welcome! Yes, Goodreads is great! Definitely a good resource and community if you love reading. I wish the same for you, as well!
WOW!! THAT is sooooo cool!! Congratulations! 🎉
Thank you Olivia! I hope you are having a great weekend so far!
Totally agree. Reading expands our world!
Indeed! It made my world much bigger as a child and exposed me to so many ideas and places!
Congratulations on your book! That’s awesome 😄
Thank you Alex for your kind congratulations and for taking the time to comment! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
Yeah, I agree. Reading is love. Reading is life. Anyway, congratulations on ur book 👍🙂
Thank you for your kind congratulations. I hope you are having a great weekend so far!
Congratulations! Reading is kind of awesome.
Thanks! I hope you are having a great weekend!
I am following you on Goodreads and wrote a review on A Potter’s Dream: Myths and Legends. I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.
Thanks! I saw that and I also saw a certain book in someone’s author profile that I need to acquire for my 2020 reading list 😉 I hope your weekend is amazing!
I love Chandler Bing!
You must be a big fan of ‘Friends’ 😉
Congratulations! I would follow you, but Goodreads is dangerous for me. Too many books for my time!
Thank you! I know that feeling and understanding it more now that I am on the site! Hope you are having a great weekend.
I love books and reading! Can’t wait to find you on Goodreads. Anywhere there are books, I’m happy. When I go to flea markets I still end up looking at books 🙃
I loved to read to growing up. Then the kids came along and my reading got condensed down to the weekly grocery junk mail and the TV guide! But now my kids are older I am getting back into reading again and I absolutely love it. Your book looks amazing and I have added it to my must read list!
Thank you so much for your kind comment Vicky! There are moments in my life where my reading has been quite confined due to circumstances, but these days I am able to read more thankfully. I find it very relaxing. It is great you have more time for reading now! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Sorry for my delayed response. It seems wordpress has marked a number of real comments as spam which I just found.
Your welcome! Yes word press can be a bit strange at times. I often get notifications for things I have already seen! Have a wonderful week.
I only go to Goodreads to read reviews of a book I heard about and cannot get my hands on, or can’t afford to buy. Or do not wish to get it from Amazon. I semi-boycott Amazon. Love, Catrina
I like the vibe of the goodreads community so far. I also try to avoid amazon as well, which can be challenging because I live in a rural area. I hope you have a wonderful weekend Catrina!
You also, eh, “thealchemistpottery”
Goodreads always a yes. 😀
Thank you so much for your very kind congratulations! I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Hope the same for you 😊🎉🎊🥳
I used to read instead of sleep until I got to old to function that way. Congratulations! I will have to try and remember how to log into Goodreads. It’s been a while :/
I can very much relate to your comment! I would often be up till the wee hours of the morning reading if the book had captivated me. Maybe I will see you on goodreads. Hope you are having a great weekend so far!
Ditto! So far so good!
Reading is my world! Nice to meet you fellow, booklover! 🙂
A pleasure to meet another booklover! Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
Congrats on publishing your book, clearly on a subject you have a lot of love for. Awesome!
I loved to read as a kid, too, still do. 🙂
Thank you so much for the congratulations. I love pottery and mythology and it is an amazing thing to be able to share that with others. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Congratulations! Well done on getting your book out there–it’s no easy feat!
Reading is the best!! Congratulations on your book!
Congratulations on your book🤗. As someone trying to get one out there I know how great an accomplishment it is.
