Anyway, after further review, we found that a book hop is something entirely different and requires very little sweating. In fact, the event is nothing more than an opportunity to connect with other book bloggers and only requires participants to answer a weekly question. As we are always looking for a way to climb out of our current blogging hole of obscurity, we decided to participate. Thank you Crazy-for-Books.
“If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title?”
At first we thought this question was a joke. Nothing more than a muse to stir emotions, but then to our horror we realize that there must be some legitimate truth to the question. Now that our multiple fainting spells have ceased we must respond with a resounding, “YES, we always start with the first in the series.” This is fundamental book etiquette, people. Starting a series in the middle will do all kinds of horrible things to the delicate balance between our two worlds. There’s really nothing more to say about this topic and if you happen to be one of those people who plot jump... shame on you.
