Follow Friday/Book Blogger Hop & Weekly Recap

Friday, March 18, 2011

It's Follow Friday! Hosted by the always amazing Parajunkee's View, this is a chance to meet new blogger friends and grow our networks.

This week's question is "How did you come up with the name of your blog?"


Do I really need to answer that?

The short answer is that I wanted to stick with my name for simplicity and to build myself as a brand, not just the blog itself. Ta da!

Be sure to check out this week's featured blogger (and one of my personal favorites) Gone with the Words and the rest of the participants.

Book Blogger Hop

Hosted by Crazy For Books, this blog hop is all about connecting with our fellow bloggers. Each week we discuss a book-related question and hop around to other blogs to see their answers.

This week's question is "Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?"

I usually read more than one book at a time. I'm almost always reading one or two on my Kindle, and then I have a paperback that sits by my bed. Right now, for instance, I'm breaking up the formal Jane Eyre with the creepy Wicked Lovely on my Kindle, and I'm reading 13 to Life in bed at night. I go through spurts where I'll focus on one book at a time, but usually I'm too fickle and need to go back and forth between them. The downside is that if I read books that are too similar to one another while I do this, I can confuse the story lines.

What about you?

My weekly recap is inspired by the phenomenally talented, kind and generous Small Review. If you are not already following her, you are really missing out.

If you're a first time visitor, or just didn't get the chance to stop by this week, here's what you missed:

Silly Sunday - Bronte Sisters Power Dolls
Watch a funny fake advertisement for some killer literary dolls.

Hopping by!

I usually only read one book at a time, but now I'm starting to think about adding in another read when I'm reading a really hard book. :)

Happy Friday!
My Hop!

Gah, I suck! I haven't visited in awhile! I just haven't had the time to comment...

Anyway, I always wanted to know why you stuck with your name for your blog. And now I get why.

I'm so mad I missed this week's posts. I browsed through, and it sounds like it was a pretty eventful week. Plus, you ended up enjoying a few reads, too!

Ha ha! I love your snarky little reply at the beginning. I like the idea of building myself as a brand too. That's one of the reasons I chose my name for my blog name.

Not everyone can multi-task and nobody should. When it comes to book sure, I can't read four books simultaneously (or even two, for that matter!) but there are times I'll juggle as many as four books at a time depending on the subject matter, the urgency or more often both.

The real trick to this is what KINDS of books to juggle. Hop on over to my blog and learn the method behind my madness - http://www.howardshermannet

Hopping through. I like reading multiple books. Especially with drier books like classics.
