OUR VERY FIRST FRIDAY FOLLOW BLOG!
A Blog Hop, has nothing to do with a new type of dance move, is a great way for book bloggers and blog readers to hop from one blog to the next; inspiration – Twitter!
This is where the underworld of book blogging comes to life, we all hop from one blog to the next finding new and exciting reviews, interviews, giveaways and maybe (in our case hopefully) more followers. A book geek’s wonderland by combining social networking and books?
Each blog adds their name to a “Linky List” on a host blogger’s page (our hosts are Crazy for Books and Parajunkie) and off they go surfing the book-blogosphere with the other added blogs. Hop host posts a question related to books and blogging about books that each follower should answer either in a blog or comment. Once the blog is posted followers and Webbers reign free of internet constraints and comment away with their answers to the questions – creating a Book Lovers Frenzy! What is better?
What is your reading suggestion this week?
Tarryn: My reading suggestion for this week has to be-Undoubtedly-Conversations with Myself by Nelson Mandela. Finally, we are able to learn about the man and not just the leader. An iconic book written in his own words from journals, post-its and calendars during his political years; said to be the new Long Walk to Freedom: but better!
Kelly: My reading suggestion for this week is Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. A classic tale that some have compared to Jane Eyre – a Masterpiece! Get a copy now!
Crazy for Books’ Question:
"When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?"
Tarryn: I feel that there are too many books to get through in a lifetime. Why waste part of the journey on something you don’t enjoy?
Kelly: Life is too short for books you cannot enjoy – If you need to read it, read it. But there is probably a better novel waiting to be devoured.
