Blog Hop and Follow Friday - January 14

How about instead of trying to think up some corny intro, we’ll just go ahead and dive right into the questions this week (expect our childish humor back in full force next week). 

Thanks to Crazy-For-Books and Parajunkee’s View for hosting these fun events. On to the questions!
Follow Friday - What makes up your non-human family?

In spite of the fact that some days our own children possess many non-human attributes, today is neither the time nor the place for that rant.  Our official non-human family includes 6 fish, 1 cat, and roughly 684.73 books.  The .73 was due to an unfortunate situation involving a 3 year old child and an old Stephen King paperback.  Additionally, one of us is quite fond of her Snuggie...

Book Blogger HopBlog Hop: Why do you read the genre you read?  What draws you to it?

Hold on a second while we climb up on our soap box...  We refuse to be defined by only one genre!  Or even by six.  In fact, our reading mission is to leave no genre uncovered.  We place a very high value on uniqueness and are always in search of an original voice or concept.  We will purposely delay a reading of our favorite author so that he or she can be even more appreciated at a later date while we do some good old fashion genre hopping.                                      

Also, we don’t think all the kinks have been worked out of our “Follow” button...  If you would be so kind to give it a test, we’ll make sure yours is working as well.

  3. Just hopping on by, your Follow button seems to be working just fine ;D

    We aren't meant to have animals so just have a couple of budgies, whose lives have been less comfortable since our 1 yr old started taking an interest in them.

    I'm another reader who loves various genres.
