Follow Friday (21) & Book Blogger Hop (19)

book blogger hop, follow friday 22 Comments 1st July, 2011

Follow my book blog Friday is a weekly meme where you go around and meet other bloggers and follow each other, hosted by Parajunkee’s View. This weeks question is:

“Q: ACK! Your favorite book/movie character (example Hermione Granger played by the Emma chick) just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you include visual stimulation.

This might be a popular choice this week, but I’d have to say Fitzwilliam Darcy from Pride & Prejudice. I mean seriously, who doesn’t love this guy? Mr. Darcy <333333333

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books, a way to find new bloggers and friends, get to know each other. This week’s question is:

“Q: What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?”

I’m not really sure what keeps me reading. A book sometimes takes me halfway to really get into it, but unless it’s utterly and completely boring I won’t stop reading. I haven’t had that happen very often. I like finishing what I start.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Mr. Darcy is a great choice. I agree with Cait, I would wonder if I went back in time, not that it would be a bad thing. I would love to visit. 🙂
    Have a great weekend!

    NEW FOLLOWER…beautiful blog.

    I like you answer…you are correct that it takes a while to get into some books…I give it about 50-100 pages, but I usually don’t give up. 🙂

    I have a giveaway for NIGHT TRAIN going on until July 25.

    I don’t know why I keep reading a book. It’s not the story. It’s not the characters. I really don’t know!

    I’m hopping by to tell you that I’ve got a wonderful giveaway going on at my blog, Readerbuzz. It’s international! During the Readerbuzz July Giveaway I’ll be giving away a $25 Amazon gift card! I’d love to have you stop in and throw your name in the hat to win!

    Swoon, Mr Darcy…always love him! I can’t believe I didn’t think of that. Maybe I’ve just been too obsessed with True Blood lately.
