Reader Spotlight: Like Mother, Like Daughter

This year, we're doing "Reader Spotlight" posts on a bi-weekly basis. We want to feature readers who have been actively following CLC for a while. We're hoping you can get to know some new friends this way. One of the joys of having CLC is that readers have connected with each other, as a result. That's one of the reasons it was started up in the first bring chick lit fans together from all over the world! We've made some amazing friends because of this blog and we hope you'll get to do so too!

If you'd like to be spotlighted sometime this year, please contact us.

See our previous Reader Spotlight posts.

Note from Melissa A: Rhonda and Kayla have been following CLC for a while and participating in all the giveaways. I love their enthusiasm for books and based on their last name, I guessed they were related. Well, I was right! They're mother and daughter. And they remind me of myself and my mother in how we share a love for books and recommend them to each other. I thought it would be fun to put the spotlight on this dynamic duo today.

I'm loving the mother/daughter theme today. My mom loves reading too, but we don't always share the same taste.

My mom and I love reading. I'm so happy that my daughter is starting to love reading as well. I've got my mom to open up her author lists through my active social media activity and got her reading some of my favorite authors. :-) it's great to be able to bond over something that tends to be overlooked with all the access to technology/tv/online video streaming. I'm so honored to be recognized with my mom as your reader spotlight. :-) For the love of reading!
