Book Blog Hop! It's Friday! Let's Play!!!

It's Blog Hop Friday!!! Hey, It's Friday, that's good enough for me! But here is a chance to explore new book review blogs and get to know some of our fellow bloggers out there!

Here is the info on the Book Blog Hop -

Jennifer at Crazy For Books is the host, and you can find her information and the McLinky to join in at her blog! http://www.crazy-for-books.com

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!

This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!

So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun! This is a weekly event! And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added! We get over 300 links every week!!

Jennifer also includes a weekly question for bloggers to answer! This week's question is: Do you listen to music when you read? If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?

My Answer: Yes, I like to listen to music, and I try to pick out songs that go along with my book reviews that I post on my blog. For instance, my review of "The Nobodies Album," I picked songs that had the word Nobody or Nowhere in them. Wierd, I know, but it's fun!

Don't forget to sign up for my Penguin 75th Anniversary Giveaway (just click the little penguin at the top of the page!)

As a special Book Blog Hop incentive, I'll take all comments posted through this weekend on this post as well as the Penguin post! Become a new follower and let me know, and you'll get an extra chance!

So, Welcome to my blog, take a look around! Thanks for Hopping By!!!

Here from the Hop! I don't like music much when I'm reading but will listen to that instead of the TV.

i like to listen to music when I read too, though I don't usually think to match the music to the book-that's an interesting idea! Maybe we should start a new meme where people pair books and music like food and wine!

I do the same thing when I'm reading.

Happy Friday. Come see how I listen to music when I read.

Hi. Stopping in from the hop. Very nice blog! Just saw the To Kill A Mockingbird 50yr button. I didn't realize that was happening this year. It's one of the best books I've ever read! Have a great weekend, Dianne

I like silence. Beautiful silence. A little French music can be nice, too.

Hi! I'm a new follower--just stopping by from the hop! Great blog--I just entered your contest!!!

As music goes, I'm kind of the opposite--I used to have music playing all the time, but now I prefer quiet.

Hope you're having a great weekend!!!
