Book Blogger Hop (August already)

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a place just for BOOK BLOGGERS and readers to connect and share our love of the written word. This weekly BOOK PARTY is a chance for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

1. Grab the logo
2. Post about the Hop on your blog
3. Add your link and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list at Crazy-for-Books!

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, go back later and join the fun! This is a weekly event! And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added! There are over 200 links every week!!

In order to add your link to the list, your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews. If your blog does not meet these requirements, it will be deleted from the list.


1. Enter your book blog link in the Linky List
In your link, please state the main genre that you review: eclectic, contemp. fiction, ya, paranormal, mystery, non-fiction, etc. Please do not list every genre you review - if you are review a variety, please put eclectic! The Hop gets jumbled up if the title is too long, so please limit to one genre. I will be limiting the number of characters in the title to ensure the Hop doesn't look messy! Thank you!
Example: Crazy-for-Books (literary fiction)

2. Post about the Hop on your blog. Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier! In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!).

This week's question comes from Michelle from Michelle’s Book Blog! (waiting for her blog link!)
How many books do you have on your 'to be read shelf’?

I, too, really do not have a TBR shelf. Instead there are books all over my house - I mean, really, it is out of control. But I rather like it. My real problem is all of the books that I have read and need to review.

I have another blog devoted to Holocaust resources and I get many of these materials from Interlibrary loan, which means I have limited time to get them read and reviewed! I am WAY. BEHIND. So the TBR pile just keeps growing - and will until I get caught up!

I am hopping in for the blog hop. I'm a follower, too!

Yeah, my TBR is spread across two rooms. I use the library a lot so I won't just keep buying books.

If you have time, drop in and say hi at Manga Maniac Cafe

My tbr is confined to my room, but other than that, there is no rhyme or reason to them. Have a great weekend!

Just hopping by...the physicality of my books throughout the house is comforting. Like a warm, welcoming presence.

Stopping by from the hop!

I'm the same way, my TBR books are everywhere. And I know what you mean about having a ton to review, it's crazy!


Kelli (I'd So Rather Be Reading) said...

I also have books all over my house---it's beginning to be a problem. :)

Stopping by from the hop...
It would be so easy to have a crazy amount of books all over my house, but I would get overwhelmed, and reading might lose its fun. So I keep about 15 books total on my nightstand, and about 50 on my "want" list. Of course, with every Hop I add more to my "want" list!! (But at least those aren't actually IN my house yet!)

Hi, just hopping by. I look forward to looking around your blog. Happy reading this weekend.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I, too, have books all over the house. I need to donate some to the library to make room for my new ones.

I'll be looking for your review on the new Per Petterson!

Willa said...

Visiting you back from the blogger book hop. I'm now a follower.

Hey, thanks so much for stopping by The Blue Bookcase. Looks like you have a great blog! Also, I have to say that I am fascinated by your Holocaust Resources project. When I was younger I went through a period of a few years where I was absolutely fascinated with the holocaust and read every book I could find on the topic. Wish your blog was around then!
Keep up the good work!

OMG- I think I remember Donna Parker! Gosh that was a long time ago and of course I do remember Nancy Drew. Thanks for visiting with me and I enjoyed my visit, I'll be back soon.
