Follow Friday!



This is my first ever Follow Friday, woo-hoo!  This is a weekly blog hop, hosted by Parajunkee.  This gives me an opportunity to do one of my favorite things...discover new blogs!  Maybe I will make some new blogger buddies too!  

This week's featured blog is from my friend Rebecca at Confessions of a Page Turner, who has an awesome blog design by the way, love it!  I encourage you to stop by and see it for yourself.  

So now on to this week's question:  Give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you

Hmmmm...
  1. Although I love romance novels, I won't read books with "Fabio" inspired covers.  I know I could be missing out on some great reading, but they always remind me of the "I can't believe it's not butter" commercials. 
  2. I read two or more books at a time, but usually different genres.  I try to mix it up, mystery, romance, and non-fiction.  I don't do this intentionally, it just happens.
  3. I started a book club 11 years ago because every time I suggested a book to my mother, she would always tell me that she couldn't sit down and read a book.  The club was designed to encourage her to read.  I'm happy to report that she's been reading every since and our club is still together!
  4. I almost always have a book that I keep in my car. It's my just in case I have to wait some place book.  No matter how good it is, it will probably never make it into the house, because its place is in the automobile.  
  5. I can only read non-fiction in chunks. You know like I will read a few pages and put it down.  I might revisit the book several times in one day, but I can never just sit and read it for hours on end. Maybe I have to digest the information or something.  I guess it feels kinda like studying.

Hopping through. New follower! I love non-fiction but I agree that it can be hard to get through at once. It's nice to mix it with other books.

Hi Stacey. New follower! (on everything, I think. FB, NB, etc.)

I really dig your blog and the vibe it gives off. I look forward to seeing more of it in the future.

Congrats on the book-club and it's longevity! I'm a newbie reader and whenever I give someone a book rec, it's almost as if I'm jealous of that person because they get to experience the wonderfulness of what's to come!

Have a great weekend!
Amy
