Afternoon friends, welcome back! Today, Dani and I are sharing the topics for January 2022.
I can’t believe we’re planning for January; another year has already gone by, both too slow and fast at the same time. 2021 wasn’t entirely horrible, it even had its bright spots at times, so here’s to hoping that the next year will continue to be better. i’m never going to forget the hopes we had for 2020 and the ensuing catastrophe that happened instead, so I wish for a better 2022 with a very very healthy dose of skepticism.
In case you’re new to this meme:
Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme hosted by me and Dani @ Literary Lion where we discuss certain topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts. Join in on this meme by writing your own discussion on the topic, and sharing your link using the inLinkz that will be available on Dani’s blog each Friday.
We’ve got four awesome topics, two of which were brought to us by Jillian and Fives, so thank you very much to them. If you’d like to share a topic, you can do so using the Google Form that will be available below.
Without further ado, let’s get started!
January 7: 2022 Reading Goals (Dani)
Prompts: As we enter the new year many of us will be setting goals on Goodreads and choosing new year’s resolutions. What are your goals related to your blog or books/reading in general? Are you going to have resolutions this year, and if not why not?
January 14: Do Book Buying Bans Work for You? (Jillian @ Jillian the Bookish Butterfly)
Prompts: The book community is full of consumerism. People want to not just read their favorite books, but own them as well. Sometimes this can get…a little out of hand. How do you control your spending/buying books you don’t have time to read? Does setting a book buying ban work for you? How long do you usually ban yourself for?
January 21: Do Bloggers Owe Their Readers and Vice Versa? (Rukky)
Prompts: Do bloggers owe their readers anything? Do bloggers deserve anything from their readers? Do you think there’s a specific etiquette that bloggers/readers should follow when interacting? Do you as a blogger pressure yourself to provide certain things to your readers? Do you do certain things when you read a blog post?
January 28: Rereading Books? (Fives @ Down the Rabbit Hole)
Prompts: How many times is enough? Why re-read at all? Is re-reading just a comforting pastime? Or is there excitement to be relived? What kind of books do you re-read? Do you ever re-read books you don’t like in hopes that it will be better the second time? Were there any books you didn’t like as a child but liked as an adult, or vice versa?
Even if you don’t participate by writing LTB discussions, we’d still love to hear any suggestions you might have. We’re always accepting topics, so you can share your ideas using the google form below!
Tomorrow’s topic is Do You Keep Up With New Releases and I don’t know if I have anything much to talk about since the short answer is no. Or well lately, the answer is no. There was a time when I was very much invested in what the latest releases were. Hmm, maybe there is something I could find to discuss.
I probably won’t update the LTB page with January’s topics until tomorrow, so you can check back over the weekend to find them there. However, all the topics up to the end of December have already been added.
And yeah. Until possibly tomorrow,
