"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

Book Blogger Hop!!


In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, 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 an awesome opportunity 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!  So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list below!!

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come 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!  We get over 200 links every week!! 

Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.


1.  Enter your book blog link in the Linky List below
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)
NOTE:   You no longer have to enter the length of time you've been blogging, but do let us know if this is your first time hopping with us!

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!).  If you have a question that could be used in a future Hop, leave it in the comments!  Thanks!

This week's question comes from Michelle from Michelle’s Book Blog!

How many books do you have on your 'to be read shelf’?
OMG!!  more than I can count!!  Mine is not a shelf, 
they are several piles arranged by book size, genre and series.
At least 100 I am embarrassed to say.  
Most were accumulated before I even started my blog. 
Plus my husband or my sister or my daughters reads books and says they were so good I have to read them.  Now if the books are a series I will catch up the series when the newest one is released  
so that helps keep the piles from tumbling.
 Visit other blogs in the Linky List!  Make new friends!  Follow new book bloggers!  Talk about books!  Rave about authors!  Take the time to make a quality visit!  
Check out other posts and content, make a new friend! 
Don't randomly follow someone if you never intend on actually following them!  
No spamming please!  (Please do not leave your link and not visit other blogs - 
it's just not cool and not in the spirit of the Hop!)

So, have fun HOPPING and enjoy your BOOK PARTY weekend!!!

Yes, the old TBR piles evolve, seemingly all on their own sometimes.

Thanks for hopping over to my blog.
