Book Blogger Hop: April 1st - 4th & Follow Friday (11)

Book Blogger Hop
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books and is an awesome way to for book bloggers to interact and find each other. Such a wonderful idea! There's a new question every week that all the participating blogs have to answer.

This week's question comes is:
 "Since today is April Fool's Day in the USA, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you?"

My Answer: I can't really say I've ever really played a prank on anyone, I'm never devious enough to pull it off. But I will tell you something funny I did by accident, we were refurbishing the library and I was in charge of taking pictures. We had an electrician behind the counter sorting out the fuses and wiring. two of my colleagues were by the desk so I thought I would get a picture of them, but not realizing that the flash was still switched on, I took the picture - just as the electrician clipped a wire,  he jumped and yelled thinking that the wires had blown. After recovering from his mini heart attack we all fell about laughing, it was so funny. I couldn't apologise enough!

Follow Friday

Follow Friday is an opportunity to discover and follow other book related blogs! Want to join? Check it out at Parajunkee.

This week's question comes from Books Ahoy!

What is the book that you really don't want to admit to loving?? 

My Answer: ooh tricky, I am quite open about what I love in books, I don't think you should ever be ashamed of what you like. Everyone has different tastes and we should accept that. So if you love a book, shout about it!!! If nothing else it makes us feel better, and if the author sees or hears about it, it's gonna bring a smile to their faces too.

 Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!
Please check out my Giveaway, closes on 7th April. :D

I agree. You shouldn't be ashamed of what you like, but I can't help it sometimes.

Oh no! That poor electrician. Good thing it was a flash and not the real thing.

I totally agree with your answer about books you won't admit to liking. Mine was similar.

Happy Friday! :)

I've seen some surprising answers but I think my response to this week's Follow Friday question will shock most.

I have to say that I loved the Harry Potter series but have a really hard time admitting it. It's teenage stuff. Perfect for the YA audience, sure.

But a grown man who just last week blogged about wishing he could step inside the Rogue Warrior book series with Navy SEALs shooting, looting, drinking and wenching has got a real hard time admitting to loving teenie-bopper Harry Potter.

I go into much more detail on my blog and welcome all comments -

All I ask is that everyone try and keep their comments civil. It's cool to disagree but flame wars are NOT cool.

Thank God it's Follow Friday!
