Friday Follow (3) Blog Hop

Hello Bloggers!  Welcome to It’s a Book Thing blog hop Fridays.  We really think there should be a cheesy ad and a catchy jingle when Friday Follow comes along.  So we tap our feet and bop our way through this blog post and registering on the Linky List while humming the tune “We are Family”.
So we welcome comments, thoughts, criticisms (not so much) and referrals.  YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!

Book Blogger Hop
If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title?
Tarryn: Yes! Not reading a series in consecutive order is like putting your t-shirt on before your bra.
Kelly: Yes, but with family (books) there is always one loony uncle in the back who has fallen completely off the tree.
What is your usual monthly book budget?
Tarryn: I have no monthly budget – it is against my book-buying religion.
Kelly: Tarryn has her religion; I have my addiction (I would sell my alzheimic, frail Grandmother for signed limited edition box set of Harry Potter).

Hi there...stopping by via the hop. I feel the same way about first books in series - I have to start at the beginning and it's only on rare occasion that I don't. My full answer can be found here.

I am essentially compulsive about reading series books in order...I really hate it when I read something, then find out after the fact that it is part of a series, and not the first book!!

hahaha I love that last quote about selling your grandmother...I seriously laughed out loud and inappropriately ;)

I'm a new follower! Feel free to drop by my blog any time!

Hey! I'm your newest follower; just stopping by on the hop to wish you a great weekend!

My monthly budget is anything under $100 but with the holidays approaching I might have to make an exception!

Happy Friday! Like your song!

New follower here. I’m doing all three of the Friday blog runs. I don’t limit myself to budget with books. I just love to read and write so that line is always doable for me. And Yes, I love start a series at the 1st book.

I can dive right into the middle of a book series if the series' story
doesn't run chronologically.

That is to say, if each novel in a series is a stand-alone story (like Lee
Child's Reacher novels) then I don't feel the need to start with book one.

On the other hand, a series of books (like Richard Hatch's Battlestar
Galactica novels) can't be read out of sequence since each new book builds
upon the story of the previous entry in the series.

Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!
