[Book Blogger Hop] Side Quest #3

Didn’t you just love that interview yesterday? Megan Linski is one of my favorite authors! And Torrent . . . wow! Anyway, it’s that time again – time for the Book Blogger Hop (and yes, I know I should be focusing on everything for Kid’s Book Week – which starts on Monday! – but I’m going to sneak this one in and hope that my motivation holds and everything else gets done on time. It will. It should. Yes, it will!)

So, if you haven’t joined us before, the Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer and it’s a lot of fun. Each week, there is a question to answer (the hop runs from Friday til Thursday) and all you have to do is link up your answer and hop around to other blogs and say hi! Easy peasy and lots of fun! This week’s question comes from our host, Billy . . .

Have you ever bought a book because you liked its cover art?

You’re kidding, right? Maybe the more appropriate question for me would be “have you ever bought a book based on something other than the cover art?” Because yes, I am a very visual person. And yes, I tend to have a problem with buying books based on their cover (and signing up for tours based on the same criteria, which sometimes produces less than favorable reviews, unfortunately). Of course, I am learning to read the summary on Amazon / Goodreads before buying / signing up for books. Most of the time. Some of the time. Let’s just agree that I am a work in progress.

So . . . favorite cover art? Right now, it is With These Wings by another favorite author of mine, Wendy Knight.

Although, to be fair, I don’t think there is a cover of Wendy’s that I haven’t absolutely fallen in love with 🙂

The truth? Yes. We had suddenly lost our precious Yoda. I was walking around Barnes & Noble and this book was turned out so I saw the cover. I have been a big fan of his ever since 🙂

That’s all we have for you today 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your hopping!

[Book Blogger Hop] Side Quest #1

One of my favorite things the last time around was blog hops. It’s always so much fun meeting new bloggers! This one is hosted by Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. And I like it because it’s not just a one day thing. This blog hop goes for an entire week!

So what am I supposed to do? First, answer the week’s question (this week’s question comes from Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books.

When you enter an unfamiliar house or apartment for the first time, do you feel disappointed if you don’t see any bookshelves, or books on the coffee table?

Disappointed? No. I won’t judge someone just because they don’t have books on the table. Mine are on bookshelves in my bedroom, out of sight for anyone visiting my home. Is it because I’m hiding them? No. There just isn’t any other space! lol. Am I disappointed that I can’t snoop into someone’s reading preferences? Yes. It’s always fun to see what other people like to read (and maybe get some suggestions!).

Always! I drool over a house that has a library/den. It is the one room that I hope we can have in our next forever home 🙂 It changes my opinion of someone if I think they don’t read. It shows a narrow view of the world. Also, I think you learn a lot about someone by what they read. Better than a palm reader or an online dating bio!! Haha!

Now what? If you’ve answered the question, go add your link to the list and then hop around to other blogs! Go leave some comments, maybe follow a few, and make some new booknerd friends!

Happy Saturday 🙂
