Hello Friday! Blog Hop (7)

There is one day a week that seems worthy of cracking open a bottle of wine (Besides Tarryn who thinks Wine Night is every night) and that day is today!  So as we slowly acquaint ourselves with Friday, coffee in hand, we give you the BLOG HOP!


Name 3 authors that you would love to sit down and spend an hour or a meal with just talking about either their books or get advice on writing from...

  1. The Bronté Sisters (Does this count as 3 or one?)
  2. Aravind Adiga
  3. Jane Austen

  1. Ian Fleming
  2. Roald Dahl
  3. Beatrix Potter 

Crazy for Books

What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t

Tarryn: This is against our reading religion to answer this question

Kelly: There are a few books where I have wanted to set on fire while booming a mock-evil-laugh as the pages curl, but the thought of damaging a book certainly turns my blood to bile.  So I close the book, stroke the spine and place it neatly on my bookshelf.

We would love to hear your answers! So leave a comment - we will be sure to stop by your blog!

Don't forget to follow us on twitter:

New follower! Found on Follow Friday! :) Jane Austen seems to be a popular choice! I've only ever read Emma though (and wasn't too crazy about it) but I really want to try Pride and Prejudice!

If you'd like to visit my own FF post, it is here:

New follower here! Great author picks...though you might need to add a stipulation that they attend the meeting...well, ya' know. As they were in life...I'm just sayin'.

Stop on by to see my author picks:

Since last week's pie chart about where I get my books was so popular, I thought I'd share what types of books I do read. Please stop by to see which genres I don't typically read.

Ooh I can't even begin to answer those questions - and I agree with Tarryn, it's against my reading religion to single out a genre I can't get into and it's against my reading religion to narrow it down to only a few authors that I can get to sit down with. :)

Shelagh said...

Roald Dahl is an excellent choice! I'm also really glad to see that other people are incapable of book destruction - it took me ages to be able to make notes in my textbooks.

Hope you ladies had a fabulous weekend!
