However, it was a lot of fun! Looking back, it is one of my favorite memories from all of middle school.
You're probably wondering how on earth all that connects to my blog name--a name I came up with more than three years after that even took place.
Well, I was given a certificate for participating (I wish I knew where it was so I could share a picture) and at the bottom there was a quote:
“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates' loot on Treasure Island and best of all, you can enjoy these riches every day of your life.” ~ Walt DisneyI decided in that moment that the quote was my new favorite because it was SO TRUE and then when it came time to the struggle that was coming up with a blog name, I thought of Battle of the Books--the reading, the competition, the fun--and decided to just figure out something that fit with the quote and voila! Reading is My Treasure was born.
Now, the "Q&A Discussion Launch" bit:
This post is the start of a new sort-of-feature where I write discussion posts based off of questions. For this first one, I decided to go with a question of my own that I've wanted the opportunity to answer.
However, from here on out, I want to write the posts based off of your questions. What do you want to know about me? What bookish things do you want to know my opinion on? What are some things outside of reading and blogging that you want my thoughts on? Ask me anything!
I'm hoping that by having questions submitted by you guys will motivate me to actually write discussion posts (a lot of my ideas fizzle out before I even start typing). Plus, I'm curious about what questions you may ask.☺
If you want to submit a question for me to answer in a post, go ahead and include it in with your comment on this post!
