Hoppin' and Followin'



How did you come up with your blog name?

Obviously I wanted it to have something to do with books and I really liked Bookworm plus I didn't like any of my previous online identities so I really wanted to think of one I did like.  Then I hit on the idea of relating it to my favorite president (and voracious reader) Theodore Roosevelt so I picked his birth year and combined them.

Book Blogger Hop
 Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?
 
 I usually read two at a time but they have to be quite different.  For example I was reading a cozy mystery and a YA horror novel yesterday (have since finished the cozy) and that was fine.  But I could never read, say, two Agatha Christies at the same time.  It especially helps when one is a hard-copy and the other is on my Nook because the reading experience is different and that helps to keep it additionally straight in my head.

Bonus question: What kind of giveaway do you prefer? 
A. One book chosen by the blogger
B. A selection of books for you to choose from
C. You pick the book
D. Gift card
E. Something else (please say what in comments)
[As far as I know, C is the best option for US bloggers so that international people can participate but I'd appreciate any insight you can lend]

  1. I'm the same way with genres. I can read several books at once, but not two similar books. However, almost ALL my books are on my NookColor now, so that's where we differ.

    As for a giveaway I would prefer a selection of books for me to choose from or a gift card, but of course winning ANYTHING is always awesome! :)

  2. Coming through on the blog hop.

    I have no problem reading two books at a time though it does not happen often. I generally like to finish one and then start another.

    My choice would always be the gift card to book depository!

  3. hopping on through. I do only one book at a time. I read fast so I can move on to the next rather quickly.

  5. 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

  6. Hopping through. Bookworm always used to be my nickname. I'm surprised it didn't occur to me to use in my blog.
