Book Blogger Hop: July 15th-18th & FF (26) & TGIF (9)

Book Blogger Hop
 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 from Veronica who blogs at: Read Books, Have Fun

How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?

My Answer: I get my books from a variety of places. As I work in a library I am always finding reads there to grab, Books I really want I buy from either Waterstones or Amazon, sometimes other places if they have deals on but those are my main ones. I don't use any swap websites.

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 Angela @ Angela's Anxious Life

Q. What do I do when I'm not reading?

My Answer: Where do I start, I go to work, I go Zumba, Trampolining, JuJitsu, or Diving (One every night of the week) I write YA Fiction, I try to get someone interested in publishing said YA fiction! I blog. I watch DVD's - I have quite a large collection of dvd's. I play on my wii (haven't done this for a while but when I can I love it!). So any number of things really.


This meme is hosted by GReads!

This Friday's Question: 
Book Blogger Appreciation: Which book blogs have inspired you 
or made a difference in your blogging experience?

My Answer: There are so many blogs out there I love. 

-"Alison Can Read" was one of the first blogs  I started following, I love the design and Alison is really friendly and up-beat. She does great reviews and meme's and makes her blog fun.  I hope to have a blog feel like her's.

- "The Reader Room" Alice was one of the first bloggers I communicated with, she won my first  Giveaway, and was really supportive. We started blogging at around a similar time and I have followed her blog throughout. I love her reviews and vlogs. She is hyper and crazy like me (I mean this in a very good way Alice :D) 

- "Parajunkee's View" This blog offers great meme's, awesome design, blogging tips and general know-how. Everytime I have had a question I check out this sites Blogging 101 segment, where Parajunkee offers helps, tips, advice and html know-how. THis blog has got me through some problems, maybe without Parajunkee herself ever knowing - so here's a thank you.

As I said there are so many blogs I love, I could be here forever naming them all, so I'm going to leave it at three.

 Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!

Hopping through. Oh my gosh, thank you so much for mentioning me! That was so sweet!
