Book Blogger Hop 12/10

Book Blogger Hop


Each weekend, Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books hosts the Book Blogger Hop.  It is a great way for book lovers and book bloggers to find new book blogs and get to know each other.

I actually wasn't going to participate in the Hop this week because there has been so little going on here lately.  In fact my last post was last week's Book Blogger Hop!  Then I visited the linky and found out that my question was selected this week so I think I better jump in and answer it :-)

"What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs?  Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"

I think my favorite part about book blogs are the reviews and author guest posts.  I have so much fun learning about new books and authors this way.  Of course, the giveaways are always fun too!

Things have been very quiet around here since Thanksgiving.  I've spent the last couple weekends traveling and just haven't had the time to read that I wish I did.  I'm currently really enjoying The Riddler's Gift by Greg Hamerton when I get the chance to sit down and read. It is actually a 2 part paperback so it is taking me longer than usual. I really hope to get it finished this weekend so I can review it.

I think next up on the reading list will be Beauty by Robin McKinley.  I borrowed it from my library to read for the Reading with Tequila Book Club on Goodreads.  I'm also anxiously awaiting my copy of Pale Demon by Kim Harrison that I'm getting through the Early Reviewers program at LibraryThing.

Thanks for Hopping by!
