Friday Book Blogger Hop - September 24, 2011

Book Blogger Hop

It's that time again!  Time for the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy for Books!

What is it? Well, it's a way for bloggers and readers to find each other. You write a little post about the subject of the week; link it up, THEN (and this is the important part), you hit a few of the other linked up blogs (take your time; you can spread it throughout the weekend), visit, comment, follow if you like what you see, and make new friends.  THIS week it started a bit late, so the hop will run through Tuesday!

Each week, to encourage participation, we get to answer a different question.  This week's question is:

As a blog reader, what information (besides the book review) do you like to see in other bloggers’ reviews of books? (For example – Author bio, social media links, book synopsis from Amazon/Goodreads or one written by the blogger, page count, ISBN number, link to purchase, etc.)

I like to see some of the things I put into my own reviews - a synopsis is great, but not necessary if the blogger gives a brief synopsis in their review.  DEFINITELY a link to purchase - really, if I'm THAT interested in a book, I'd like to be able to put it in a cart from the review; otherwise, I might forget.  Another item that I really like to see is a rating; otherwise, how do I really know what level of interest the book generated in the reviewer?

How about you?  If you have your own Hop post, please feel free to leave a link in the comments; I'd love to visit!



  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I agree, a rating is the single most important thing in my eyes, i like to know upfront whether the reviewer liked the book or not.

  2. I completely agree. The rating is like the most important thing. Read my answer at http://beckonedbybooks.blogspot.com/2011/09/book-blogger-hop-and-follow-friday_22.html


Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
