Blog Hop and Follow - 3/25

Thanks to Crazy-For-Books and Parajunkee’s View for hosting these fun events. On to the questions!


Question: If you could physically put yourself into a book or series... which one would it be and why?
Answer: This is easy!  If we could absolutely pick only 1 book or series, it would be The Hobbit / Lord of the Rings.  The world is endlessly vivid and there are so many amazing things to discover.  Ideally, our visit would not coincide with the height of Lord Sauron’s reign.  We’d love to visit the Shire and Rivendell! 
Well, that’s our pick and we’re sticking to i..... Oh, but Pride and Prejudice would be great too.  And Harry Potter...  Oh, and we completely forget about The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.  And Gone with the Wind.  And speaking of wind, the book cemetery in The Shadow of the Wind.  And The Other Boleyn Girl...
Sorry, we cheated a little bit this week.......
Question:  Five book related silly facts about you.
Answer: First of all, nothing we do is ever “silly”, it’s always super cool and hip.... 

1.       Whenever reading a hard cover we always remove the dust jacket
2.       We are continuously reorganizing our home library, which is a huge stress release
3.       We are unable to read in any type of moving vehicle
4.       Second hand book stores are a favorite “date night” location
5.       We love collecting interesting magnetic bookmarks



Don’t forget to check back on Monday when we officially kick off BOOK BLOGGING VIDEOS!  An epic new meme where Vloggers can share their video reviews!!!

  1. Stopping by on the Hop! Love the LOTR series - but I'd definitely pick the HP series over Middle Earth :)
    Oh, and I remove dust jackets too - hate them!

  3. It's hard to narrow it down, isn't it? :) That's 'cause you're super cool. I can't read in a car either.

  5. Thanks for stopping by. I just started following you two and it's awesome that you guys liked The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy too. I really feel that book/series has something to offer everyone, but not everyone has had the good fortune to come across them. :)

    Anyway, I hope you both are having a great Friday and I'll ttyl!

  7. Apologies in advance for my answer this week as it will not immediately resonate with the book blogger population which happens to be 99.5% female.

    My choice is a book series geared towards guys which won’t enthrall the vast majority of my fellow book bloggers (who are almost entirely female) with the extensive discussion of powerful weapons and sexy milspec gear, beautiful women, eye-popping action sequences (with occasionally obscene violence), and the like.

    But there IS something in my answer that just about everyone of the female persuasion can benefit from my decidedly “books for guys” post. Hop on over to http://www.howardsherman.net to find out what it is.

    Happy Hop Friday!

  8. Ohhhhhh...I chose Shadow of the Wind too. :) Forgot about Gone with the Wind...I would LOVE to be there during that book.

    Hope you have a fun hop.

    My answer has three choices - stop by if you like.

  10. Hey, thanks for stopping by! I also find it incredibly difficult to read in cars and buses etc. And I also have my own little collection of magnetic bookmarks, hehe. Happy Hopping!

  11. Hopping through. I would love to live Georgiana Darcy's life (except for the Mr. Wickham part).
