Friday Book Blogger Hop - October 26, 2012

Book Blogger Hop

From the Crazy for Books blog:

"The Book Blogger Hop is much more than just a “follow for a follow”. It’s about making friends. There are literally thousands of book bloggers around the world. It can seem like we are blogging in a bubble, constantly checking the same blogs over and over again. The Hop is about taking the time to make a quality visit to another blog, getting to know the person who is writing that blog, and seeing if you really *want* to follow that person!"

 Every week is a chance to visit a new blog or more, find connections, and learn about new books to read! 

This week, the question is:

1.  What are three of your favorite book blogs and/or communities?  Why do you like them?
For me, my favorite community has to be Goodreads - more than just reviews, ratings, and a way to keep track of your library and reading.  There are tons of groups and challenges - so many different ways to share your love of reading with others. I'm not part of an in-person book club, so online is the next best thing.

Favorite book blogs are harder, simply because there are so many great ones around.  But I HAVe to pick two, so here goes.

One would have to be Book Journey - Sheila shares more than her love of books - she has Morning Meanderings, which adds a personal touch, wonderfully well-written reviews, recaps of book club meetings and other events (complete with food porn), and, of course, "It's Monday!  What Are You Reading?" - one of the few memes I participate in on a [semi] regular basis).  She also seems like a pretty awesome person :)

Another would be Michelle over at True Book Addict - she runs more than one blog, each tailored a bit differently.  Examples:  Castle Macabre (horror lovers unite), The Christmas Spirit, and Historical Fiction ConnectionShe always has great challenges going on, so it's a way to get involved with other bloggers as well.

How about you?  Link back YOUR Friday Book Blogger post and then try to visit at least 3 other sites and comment - hops are a great way to make new friends!  (Once you submit your link, you'll need to refresh the page to see your link added to the list).

  2. Great question, can't wait to read all the answers. Just getting back into this Meme after taking awhile off. I know I will be adding a ton of new books to my TBR list and now getting some new book and author resources too!

  3. LOVED your answer! I HAD to pick Goodreads as MY #1 place, too! I LOVE Goodreads! IF you get a chance, you have to read what I wrote! When you read it, I am NOT kidding! I just sent Kelly a message to tell her to go read it! LOL! I'll have to post what her reply is! Maybe she'll leave a comment!
    Thanks for hosting this week!

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!
