The World of Book Blogging - Part 5

Book Blogger HopThat’s right people – it’s time for everyone’s favorite Friday social! As always, thanks to Jennifer over at Crazy-For-Books for hosting the book party! While you take a look at this week’s question, we’ll just be over here hanging out by the beverage table... again...

"What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs?  Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"

It seems like we begin each week reiterating the fact that we’re new to the world of book blogging (when does this excuse run out? At what point do you become a seasoned pro?), and thus have difficulties compiling a response.  We’re pleading the same defense this week!  We’ve yet to participate in any giveaways, so for the time being we haven’t experienced the breathtaking excitement associated with literature freebees.  That being said, probably our favorite topic to date has been reviews and posts on random literature happenings.  Our very first Read-Along has also been an enjoyable experience as we are currently participating in A Christmas Carol.  It's been a lot of fun diving a little deeper into a book and reading the thoughts of the other participants.  We’re definitely looking forward to more of these in the year to come! 

Sorry for the long winded response… Happy hopping and have a great weekend!  Oh, and if we haven’t mentioned it before, we’re very fond of followers on this blog – give us a try and we’ll be sure to return the favor! 


  1. The reviews are my favorite part also. I haven't tried a read-a-long, but that does sound like fun.

  2. Cute blog...thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. The best thing about book blogging for me is being part of a vast international community of book bloggers-the longer I blog-1.5 years now-the bigger a community I build-a lot of book blogs are themselves works of art-ok on the new book blogger status I think it ends at 5 months!-

  4. "We have a passion for GOOD literature and enough random thoughts to fill up a blog."

    I like that. New follower.

  5. Thanks for following and back at ya! My fav part of blogging is the networking and talking about books other book geeks like me. :)

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I haven't done a read along yet -- haven't found the right book. Also haven't done any book tours, or challenges, although I'm thinking about doing one of those for 2011. There's so many possibilities! Happy Reading!

  12. I had to laugh when I read your pondering of "when does this excuse run out?" I almost have a year in now and still feel like a beginner most of the time.

    You have a great-looking blog. I'm looking forward to your Sharing your thoughts on some of your "Currently in our hands" books (The Book Thief, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, and Hunger Games) which I've read recently as well.

    Happy reading!
