It's The Weekend! Blog Hopping, Giveaway Blog Hop, and Mother's Day!

Well, this is going to be a busy weekend!  It's Mother's Day on Sunday, the big Spring Carnival Giveaway Blog Hop will be wrapping up, and it's Blog Hopping weekend too!

To start things off,

This fun event is sponsored by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books.com (http://www.crazy-for-books.com/)
and is always a lot of fun!  Jennifer asks a weekly question, and this week's is:

"Which book blogger would you most like to meet in real life?"

This is a tough one to answer - I have a lot of friends in the book blog world that I'd love to get together with in real life, so it's hard to choose just one - but I know I'd have a blast meeting Sheila from Book Journey, Lori from Dollycas' Thoughts and Mary from Bookfan Mary!  We all four have so much in common, from reading interests to life interests, that that would be a guaranteed good time!


This HUGE giveaway hop is scheduled to wrap-up on Sunday evening.  Be sure to click on the button on the sidebar to enter my giveaway, and to check out the other 200-plus blogs that are participating!

700th Follower Giveaway!

I'm quickly closing in on my 700th follower on Google Friends Connect, and to celebrate, I'm offering a copy of Luanne Rice's new book, "The Silver Boat," to the 700th follower!  Who knows - it could be you!!!


And finally, last but not least - Sunday is Mother's Day!  I want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all, and as always, Happy Reading, ya'll!

I’ve met so many great people via the Book Book Blogger Con at Book Expo America I honestly can’t come up with a single name of a book blogger I want to meet but haven’t yet!

I’m heading back to BBC @ BEA. I hope to see you there!

Hop on by my blog and just say hi – http://www.howardsherman.net

I like this week's question because it is so different from our usual ones.
