Who would have thought that Jessica’s Reading Room is SEVEN years old today!

Almost all of my free time is dedicated to blogging and sharing the book love: BUT as long as I still enjoy doing it, that is what matters!  I started my blog for me first and it may not be a blog with a huge following (which I am fine with ) I still do have people looking at what I think and this is great! It’s crazy to think that people actually read about what I have to say about books! I just wish I had more free time to explore the social media side, but working over 40 hours a week with an hour commute one way, really cuts down on the reading time! BUT I do listen to audiobooks in the car!

There is a Twitter, but it really isn’t active especially now that posts can’t automatically be shared from the website.

I hope to see you around the Facebook Page and Instagram! Keep reading!
