Don't you love learning more about the blogger behind the blog? I know I do!
I've been seeing some features and posts around lately from other bloggers that are a little more personal, not so much book related. Inspired by those personal posts, I came up with this feature. It will take place every Wednesday and it will be about me; Cathy, the girl behind The Crazy Bookworm!
Of course, if there are any burning questions you are dying to know about me, feel free to leave them in the comments of these posts, and I will do my best to respond in the next Let's Get Personal post.
Thanks, and I hope you guys enjoy!
