Lurk in Libraries, Climb the Stacks Like Ladders

"You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads." - Ray Bradbury

THE “WE LOVE BOOKS. WE LOVE BLOGS.” PROMO.
I say we like there’s more than one of me, but there’s not. It’s just me. And I love books. And I love blogs.

So here’s the thing - if you are a book blog with a focus on YA, reblog this post, and I’ll be rounding you all up in a giant masterpost of promos that I will then share with all of our followers. Because I like you, and without you, this blog couldn’t exist.

I only ask that you reblog instead of like because some of you run your blogs as sideblogs and so I will then know which blog to use, or run multiple blogs, and it just makes things easier.

I will stop cataloging blogs in two weeks (August 26) and will have the promo up on September 1st. Please reblog by then or you will not be included.

Thank you and keep spreading the YA love!

[EDIT] While I appreciate you following the blog (and I do I do I love it!), if you choose not to follow it for whatever reason and want to be on the list anyway, go ahead and reblog. I ain’t gonna hate just ‘cause you want your dash clean.

Reblogging but I’m not 100% a YA blog. I leave it up to you where or not to include my blog.

Same. Not 100% YA but I definitely do read it :)
