Book Blogger Hop (20) & Follow Friday (12)

It's Friday so it means it's time for the Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday!

Book Blogger Hop

First off, the Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer of Crazy-for-Books. It is a way for all the book bloggers out there to get together and find out about each other's blogs. I've found a lot of great blogs and bloggers through this hop and it's always fun to take part in each week.

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

SINCE THANKSGIVING IS COMING UP NEXT WEEK, LET'S USE THIS WEEK'S HOP TO SHARE WHAT WE ARE MOST THANKFUL FOR AND WHAT OUR HOLIDAY TRADITIONS ARE!

Since I'm Canadian, I've actually already had Thanksgiving since for us it's the second Monday of October. For those wondering, the food is the same but the story behind it isn't. For Canadians, Thanksgiving is about giving thanks for a good harvest. But I can still answer the question. I am most thankful for my family as they have always been there to support me and I'm not sure what I would do without them. As far as holiday traditions go, my family is pretty spread out what with the ocean between my parents and I but for the most part we just all get together to cook and eat together.




The Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View each week. It works a lot like the Book Blogger Hop except that it's only on Fridays. I haven't been taking part in this hop as long but I've found a lot of great new blogs through this one too.

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BOOK BLOGGING?

In two weeks I'll have been book blogging (and regular blogging) for 5 months. I originally started my blog over the summer because I was reading a ton of books and was particularly bored. Now, even if I've only been blogging for a short amount of time, it feels like I've always been doing it. Plus all the book bloggers out there are all so nice so it makes the whole experience that much better.


UPDATES:
School and I have officially gone into crazy mode as there is only one week left of classes before finals start. Lucky (or unlucky depending on how you look at it) my first exam isn't until December 16th but that means I only finish on the 21st. I have some reviews scheduled for the next couple of weeks but other than that school work has officially taken over my life. So if I'm a little MIA that's why. I may be putting out a call for guest posters so keep on the lookout for that.

That's it for this week!

Enjoy your weekends!

  2. Hopping through! I've been book blogging about 6 months. I had a food/fitness blog before that. Book blogging is more fun, I think.
    Good luck on finals!

  8. How long have I been book blogging? Too long!

    How long is too long?

    I was blogging from my official website about the interactive fiction books
    I was writing before the words "blog" and "blogging" entered the English
    language.

    And I blogged a lot about many things -- not just books.

    I need to blog off topic a little more, I think. I don't want people to the
    idea I'm too two dimensional!

    Thank God It's Follow Friday!

    Enjoy the weekend!
