Blog Hopping (4) and Friday Follow (2)

Hello! Welcome to my blog! If you're new here, feel free to stay as long as you like, comment on old posts, or just plain say hi. I'll do my best to get back to you sometime this weekend (no guarantees for today, November 26, 2010). If you're a returning follower, welcome to you too! Most of you

I'm participating in another Blog Hop and Follow Friday, so... without further ado, here we go!

Book Blogger Hop

This week's Blog Hop question is, "What is your favorite book cover?"
My answer is something like this:
This isn't my only absolute favorite cover though (I'm sure everyone who has answered this question has run into this problem). My problem is that I choose to read books because of their beautiful covers (and then I read the descriptions inside to see if I really want to read them). I'm a sucker for black-and-white photography, if that helps though.

As of yet, there isn't a Follow Friday question, but if there is a little bit later, then I will update this post.
Until then, I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving (if you live in the U.S.) and just a fantastic Thursday in general if you do not live in the U.S.

I have a couple questions for you in return:

If you don't live in the U.S., has all of this talk about Thanksgiving been driving you up a wall?

If you do live in the U.S., did you stay home and have everyone come to you or did you travel somewhere for the holidays?

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Here from Follow Friday! I traveled 4 hours up to my dad's and then we just went about 10 minutes to an aunt's house. Always a good time! What did you do?

  2. Hey, I'm a new follower from the hop :) The title and cover sounds interesting!

  4. Hey, dropping by from Follow Friday. Your newest follower. :) That title and cover is definitely interesting. I'll have to go check it out.

  5. I almost posted the 'Memoirs' cover. It may not be colorful and bright, but it's eye catching.

    Happy Hop!

  6. Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

    Jamie: I'm glad that you had a good time over the holidays. My family came to me this year, so we had a wonderful time having fun with everyone.

    Beth: Thank you very much for stopping by! I'll be sure to stop by your blog some time tonight.

    Brandileigh2003: I am now following you as well! I left a comment on your blog hop post and everything :)

    Caroline: It's a great book. The author is consistently amazing! Also, I will try and make it to your blog tonight.

    Brooke: I agree. I think it's the dark and alluring-ness (I don't believe that this is a word) of the cover really draws you in, or at least makes you wonder about the story.

  7. Hi! I've also come hopping along and I like your choice, although I too keep thinking of other book covers I like too. I'm not from the US and, in answer to your question, no I'm not sick of hearing about Thanksgiving. Just wish we had it too :-( (don't have Halloween either :-((( ) LOL

  8. No Halloween either? Oh my goodness!
    I'm glad all of our talk about Thanksgiving hasn't turned you off of the holiday!

    I will stop by your blog pretty soon!

  9. I'm hopping by! I like your choice for the book cover. It really is quite nice. I agree, it is so hard to choose just one, so I didn't! :) I like the cover of Life As We Knew It. Something about it just makes me want to run my fingers over the surface constantly.
    Well, I didn't go anywhere for Thanksgiving, but no one came here either. Most of my family lives too far away for that! I had a good time though, did you?
    Have a fantastic weekend!

  10. Hopping through! It's really hard trying to come up with just one favorite book cover. I decided to pick on that was my favorite this week.

    I like the one you picked =D

  11. Don't think I have visited before....stopping by from the Blog Hop.

    Stop by my blog if you like to see my answer to this week's question:

  12. Hi! I am coming from the blog hop. You have such an interesting blog and cover choice. If you would like to visit me, you can find me here:

  13. This week's Book Blogger Hop question WAS a tough one! It took me two solid minutes to come up with an answer!

    Which book cover did I pick? I invite you to hop over to my blog and see for yourself.

    Happy Thanksgiving Day Weekend!

  14. YES. I love love love the typewriter keys and such on that cover. It's just fantastic.

    Thanks for answering my question!


I love your comments! Comment away!
