Blog Buddy Friday: Ste J

29 Comments

SteveToday I’d like you to meet a very special blogger who probably needs no introduction as many of you are well acquainted with Ste J over at Book To The Future. Ste J is from the UK and his blog is all about the books he reads, his thoughts and musings. His reviews have reminded me of old favorites I’d forgotten about and introduced me to books I’d never have considered. He even managed to convince me to read Flatland which is on my Kindle, but I’d put off reading forever. Of course I don’t like all the books Ste reads, but then neither does he. 😉 He even did a fabulous post once on what he gets from these less than favorable books. A very positive outlook on the subject. I loved it.

Although his blog is, for the most part, about books, reading, writers, and so forth, he also takes you along on his travels and can make even a trip to a local pub interesting and fun. Although Ste is very humble about his own writing, he has a beautifully eloquent and often humorous way with words. He grabs your attention and makes you want to read more. On very rare occasions he’s even been known to post a poem. If you’re fortunate enough to stumble onto one of these rare gems, count yourself fortunate. It doesn’t happen often, but so worth the wait. There’s also posts on music, movies and TV.  Ste is not only an interesting and entertaining blogger, he’s one of the loveliest, most supportive people I’ve ever met and I’m proud and honored to call him friend.

From Ste J: “Here you will find provided, an eclectic mix of stuff for your reading pleasure, when it comes to books, I intentionally do not reveal much plot, if you fancy reading it, you don’t want me coming along and telling you the butler did it or such like. Not that I’m saying he did do it, but he could have. As a public service I also read the rubbish books so you don’t have too, as well as delighting in finding the obscure to amuse you. I am also looking to review more authors who are self publishing and attempting to vary the content more and grow this into something interesting. Feel free to look around and make yourself at home, there’s tea in the pot.”…Ste J

When you have a little free time, drop in on Ste J over at Book To The Future and browse his many fascinating posts.

  11. Why thank you for such a wonderful surprise, I have been off the blog for over a week and wasn’t expecting to find so many comments and follows, I need to respond to. Your words about me are wonderful, naturally I disagree with some of them because I need to keep up my humble persona but I really am quite speechless for such high praise. It is funny you should mention a poem as well, I have one coming up within the next two posts!
