Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday!

I decided to do the Follow Friday again this week!  But this time I’m going to take the time to do the blog hop as well.

Follow Friday is hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee’s View.  It’s a great way to find some great blogs and interact with other bloggers.

This weeks question is:

Q. Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100factsaboutme, give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.

 1.  Every book I read I’m imagining the people I can loan it to.  Who’s style of book it is.  Like my SIL will read just about any genre, so ALL my books go to her (as long as I liked it).  My mom and sisters are a bit more picky on the genre’s they enjoy and some of my friends are as well.  But I love sharing my books with them and get super excited when I find something that is perfect for them to read. 

2. I’m a compulsive book buyer.  I obsess about buying books most days and spend forever looking through my wishlist (amazon app does NOT help!) and dreaming of which ones I’ll buy next.  I say I’m compulsive, but I think about it so much that I usually seriously think through each purchase before I make it.  But it’s usually something like getting the last book in a series from the publisher and knowing I need the one before it, and then I need to make it $25 for free shipping, so… and yes, I’m a Borders gold member, the $25 excuse has now just become an excuse.  Or I’m addicted to amazon, which is quite likely…  I also can’t stay away from books.  In every single store I have to at least walk by the books, even when I know I can’t really buy any.  It’s so bad that the ladies at Safeway (yes, I buy books at Safeway!) know to hand me the books I buy at checkout so I can hide it in my purse.  And yes, my hubby thinks all my books are free.  I just let him assume that, I haven’t lied yet. 

3. I have books EVERYWHERE in my house.  I have three bookcases in my family room, two in the living room, three in my bedroom as well as a huge shelf, books in hallways, the playroom and in each of the kids rooms.  I want a library, but for now I’m happy seeing my books everywhere. 

4. Although I like some romance I tend to think I don’t because I hate the whole thing of the two characters going on about ‘he/she deserves better so I’ll just leave, blah blah blah’.  That’s just one example.  But seriously, just get married already!  Or together for real anyway.  There are exceptions though.  I like a few series that are considered romances.

5.  I can’t leave the house without a book.  I have two kids and reading at the grocery store or anywhere is pretty impossible.  But I try anyway.

Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jenn at Crazy-For-Books and is also for mingling with other bloggers and finding new blogs.
This week her question is:

“If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?”

This is a hard one but I’m going with my favorite series, the Kushiel’s Legacy series by Jacqueline Carey.  The main characters have a crazy life, but if I was just a normal person there I would LOVE it!  

Kushiel's Dart  Kushiel's Chosen Kushiel's Avatar (Kushiel's Legacy Trilogy)  These are just the first three.  There’s three different trilogies though. 

Thanks for subscribing!


  1. You sound adorable.
    I’m not quite that way with bookstores, because I live in France and sadly, not many books are sold in english (and “translated book” is a very evil concept to me)
    I wish I could just walk in and see rows and rows and rows of books in english. Sigh.

  2. Apologies in advance for my answer this week as it will not immediately resonate with the book blogger population which happens to be 99.5% female.

    My choice is a book series geared towards guys which won’t enthrall the vast majority of my fellow book bloggers (who are almost entirely female) with the extensive discussion of powerful weapons and sexy milspec gear, beautiful women, eye-popping action sequences (with occasionally obscene violence), and the like.

    But there IS something in my answer that just about everyone of the female persuasion can benefit from my decidedly “books for guys” post. Hop on over to to find out what it is.

    Happy Hop Friday!
