Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday!

Book Blogger Hop is a fun meme hosted by Crazy For Books. Enter your link and go hop around other blogs that are out there, ready to be discovered!

I guess this week was boring and I just wanted to it to be Friday so I'm happy that it finally got here! Plus homework and school have kept me from reading as much as I want to. =(

Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?

Before I was required to read books for school I only read one book at a time. I didn't like to start a new book without finding out how the one I was reading ended. It's not that I can't keep each story seperate from each other, I just don't like to. Now I usually read 2 books for school and a book of my choice. =)

To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host { Parajunkee.com } and any one else you want to follow on the list.
  2. Follow our Featured Bloggers
  3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments
  5. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can
How did you come up with your blog name?

Ever since I started reading books I noticed that book covers played a big part on what books people decided to read. I didn't like to think that people picked books to read by their covers and not by their books. So there you have it, we should read books because of their story and not their cover.

If you're visiting, make sure you leave your link and I'll make sure to visit your blog!


  1. I'm a new follower stopping by! I love the look to your blog! Especially the little circles on the sides! Have a great weekend!

  2. Cute blog! I love the story versus cover concept behind your name! :]

  3. old follower just stoppin' through. I agree about judging a book by it's cover. :)


  4. Stopping in from the hop. I agree, you shouldn't read a book by its cover but I find myself doing it anyway. Bad habit.


  5. Great reasoning on your choice of blog name. I have to admit, I am terribly, terribly guilty of judging books by their covers! There's something about a pretty cover that just draws me in!

  6. Hopping along, new follower! :)

  7. Hi, Happy Follow Friday! I'm a new follower.

    I've noticed the same thing about book covers. I feel bad for the indie published authors whose covers aren't always all that attractive because people do tend to pick up books for their covers. Great blog name.

    Come find out how I choose my blog name!

  8. Hopping through. I didn't notice covers much until I started blogging. Now, they seem like a much bigger deal.

  9. Hi! I'm a new follower! Great blog name! Never judge a book by it's cover!

    Happy Friday!
    My Hop!

  10. Hopping in to say hi. While I have indeed purchased books based on their cover and or titles. I usually also read summaries and often even check out the first page or so. Have a great weekend

  11. I used to be a one-book-at-a-timer too, but now I usually have around three going at once. :)

  12. Only one book at a time for me, stop and see mine.

  13. I am amazed at how many people read more than one book at at time.

    Stop by my blog for a giveaway of LINEN QUEEN courtesy of Sarah from Hachette Books and to see my answer to this week's Blog Hop question.


  14. Not everyone can multi-task and nobody should. When it comes to book sure, I can't read four books simultaneously (or even two, for that matter!) but there are times I'll juggle as many as four books at a time depending on the subject matter, the urgency or more often both.

    The real trick to this is what KINDS of books to juggle. Hop on over to my blog and learn the method behind my madness - http://www.howardshermannet

  16. Oh, I love the explanation for your name! It's very true. Although I like judging the book by its cover AND inside.

    Have a great weekend!
