"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."
--Author Christopher Benson

BOOK BLOGGER HOP!!

ABOUT THE HOP:
IT IS HOSTED BY:  Jennifer at Crazy For Books

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 300 links every week!! 


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

RULES:

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:
Books Are A Girl's Best Friend


Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?
 
Yes, I do, it is in the upper right sidebar.  I designed it myself, using the star type system most online booksellers use because I post my reviews there in addition to my blog.  I love the girls faces and as soon as I saw them, my whole rating system just came together.
 








 





So head over to
add your link and
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!!!
 
 
 
 Please check out the Kohl's Cares
links at the top of my blog. 
It would be great if you could vote for our schools 
but you can also 
follow the links to find and support 
your own home town schools too.  
 
BE SURE TO CHECK OUT MY AUGUST BOOK GIVEAWAY 
UP IN THE LEFT SIDEBAR!
