It's the Weekend! Blog Hopping around!

WOW, that week went by fast!  Here it is Friday again, and I'm rather stunned to find out a whole week has passed by!  I did get a lot of reading done this week, caught up on writing a lot of reviews,  and hope to get more over the weekend!

Don't forget that I'm still looking for my 300th Follower on Google Friend Connect!  I have a lovely prize package for that special person that includes an autographed copy of Kimberly Fisk's LAKE MAGIC, plus some other special goodies!  So, don't forget to click that little FOLLOW button!!  I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

And I hope to bounce around some of the other book review blogs out there to see what everyone is reading!

Book Blog Hop is a weekly meme sponsored by Crazy For Books (http://www.crazy-for-books.com/)

Question of the week is: When you read a book you just can't get into, do you stick it out or move on to another book?

My Answer:  My opinion is that there are so many wonderful, fascinating books out there to be enjoyed, why waste your time on a book that doesn't bring you pleasure. If a book doesn't grab me in the first few chapters, I chalk it up to a no-go and move on!


 Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!

Blog Hopper here! I did it last week and fell in love with it! I remember once, I started to read a book and I just didn't like it. A couple of years later, I picked it up again (yes, I forgot I'd read part of it). This time my tastes had changed and I absolutely Loved the book from the start to finish. So you never know. If you can't get into it, put it aside for another time. I do.

Followed you!

I give a book up go 100 pages and after that, if I'm not into it, I quit. Some books start off slow but get really good later. I think just a few chapters may be a little soon to give up on it.

And here's hoping you also have a good weekend.

Happy Follow Friday!!! Hope you will stop by my blog too! My publisher and I are looking for a group of bloggers for a huge blog tour next year before the release of book two in my 'A Sense of Truth' series! We will be giving out a few more copies of The Thirteenth Chime (we can only give out so many, being open to e-books gives an upper hand) and are still open to all interviews and guest posts. We want to fill up the Amazon page with reviews and try to reach as many people as we can!!! Hope you might consider being a part of the team! Thank you either way!

I hate go give up on books halfway or even a 100 pages thru. I somehow feel I should try to read once I start, but there have been a few instances when I have just given up. There are so many wonderful books out there and time is limited so.....
