Happy 4th of July and Book Blog Hop Friday!

It's the Fourth of July weekend, and I want to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday!

And!! - It's Friday and It's Book Blog Hop Day!

Welcome to my blog, come on in and browse around! Hope you like what you see - if you do, please follow me! The blog hop is a fun weekly event that allows book bloggers to check out what everyone else is up to!

Here is the info on the Book Blog Hop -
Jennifer at Crazy For Books (http://www.crazy-for-books.com/) is the host, and you can find her information and the McLinky to join in at her blog!
About the Hop: (From Jennifer)

This is a weekly event, hosted here, where book bloggers and readers can connect to find new blogs to read. It's a great way to network with other bloggers and make new friends! Every day I seem to find another book blog that I start following. In the spirit of the Friday Follow, I thought it would be cool to do a Book Blogger Hop to give us all bookies a chance to connect and find new blogs that we may be missing out on! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!

Jennifer has added a twist to the book blog hop, and asks that we all answer one different question a week! This week's question is "who are you and why did you start blogging?"

Well, my name is Sharon Galligar Chance, and I live in the great state of Texas! I'm married to my best friend Don for nearly 28 years, and we have four sons -Coleman, Clayton, Calen and Cassidy.

I started blogging over a year and a half ago, but I have been reviewing books for going on 15 years! I am a book reviewer for my local newspaper, as well as the Las Vegas Review Journal, and Fresh Fiction.com. I added blogging to help spread the word on books that I find interesting, and to share my love of reading with folks who feel the same way!

I am also an avid gardener, thus the name Sharon's Garden of Book Reviews. I hope you find my humble little blog interesting, and will come back from time to time to see what reading goodies I have found!

I loved reading your story...and what great names you have given your sons. I had three sons before my fourth child was born (and this was back when we didn't know what sex the child would be ahead of time), so I thought I'd probably have a fourth son. Instead, I had a daughter, so I was very happy. Either way, it would have been great.

Hey! Just stopped by from the Hop! Is it not amazing how many bloggers do this each week?
I also spend as much time pulling weeds and puttering in my gardens as piled up reading.
This week my trip to the Hop is brought to you by the number 7.
