Follow Hop 15July11

About Me:
I return follows but I would greatly appreciate it if you left a link in the comments to make it a bit easier on me.

I will be having a giveaway for FOUR YA books starting next Tuesday involving SIGNED books and an international component so be sure to stop by then to find out the details!




Q. "What do I do when I am not reading?"

I love TV [Burn Notice and White Collar!] and movies although I can read during if I want.  I also love puzzles, playing the viola, and I spend quite a bit of time on facebook...although I should be curbing that.

Q: "How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?"

I am a huge library fan and am very fortunate to have a great library with staff who order the books I request.  I also get a lot of books from Netgalley and GalleyGrab. I do still buy books but usually only after I've read and loved them.

  5. You are quite worldly, with a range of interests. I admire you for playing the viola. I try to play the guitar. I also love puzzles, jigsaws with over 500 pieces.

    New Follower! Enjoying my look around.

  7. Facebook is such a time suck. I swear I plan to be on there for about 10 minutes and somehow it's 2 hours later.

    Love the blog.

  19. Hi, I'm Izzy, and I'm stopping by your blog on the Blog Hop. I also spend too much time on the Internet (although my vice is Tumblr, not Facebook). I'm a huge library fan as well, and I use the interlibrary loan system every week.

  20. I’m seeing a pattern of book acquisition here. After all, there are just so many places to get books and so many different ways to read them.

    It’s hard to beat the library for price and selection but it’s even harder to beat the convenience of browsing BN or Amazon from a Nook or Kindle, hitting a button and reading the book you picked in about sixty seconds.

    As usual, my answer to this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is all over the map. Hop on over and read my multipart answer – http://www.howardsherman.net

  24. There is absolutely nothing wrong with too much Facebook ;)

    I think it is pretty cool that you play the viola.

    I don't watch much tv during the summer. I don't know why really.

  29. Viola? Thats pretty awesome, I once had the notion to learn the fiddle but nothing ever came of it cos I lack serious discipline when it comes to things like practice, way too easily distracted!
