Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday! (4-22-11)

Happy Friday everyone! I hope that everyone is gearing up for a relaxing holiday weekend (I'm hoping for one, even though I will be working) and eating lots of candy! Since it's Friday, it's time for Follow Friday and Book Blog Hop. 

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and each week, she posts a question. You answer, post your link, and then visit other blogs and possible find some to follow! It's a great way to meet other bloggers and learn some more about the people who you already follow. This week's question is:

What is on your current playlist?
Right now, I'm really into Adele and Frank Sinatra (random, I know). I also really enjoy listening to the Glee soundtracks. Each album is like it's own playlist, with a good mix of music! And of course, Elton John ... I always have Elton playing somewhere!

The Book Blog Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books, where a question is posted every week and you respond, link up, then visit other blogs! This week's question is:

"If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author?"

What a great question! For me, it depends. If I LOVED the book, then I will definitely hunt down other books by that author the next time I go shopping. But most likely, if I happen to stumble upon the books while shopping for other ones, as long as it's reasonably priced/marked down, then I get it. There are a lot of authors that I like but I don't hunt down other books by them.

Let me know what you are listening to/if you hunt down readers! Happy Friday everyone!


  1. I pay a lot of attention to reviews so if the author's other works aren't rated very well then I usually pass up on hunting down those books.
    Well, I was just stopping by from the blog hop and am now following. Hope you have a great Easter weekend.

  2. Hi there! I've noticed a lot of Glee music out there! Nice. :) I like it as well.

    I'm a new follower--love talking to more e-reader users! :D

  3. I was hopping through and am a new follower. I love the quote you have on your header!

  4. Evening... just hopping around from book blogger hop. I agree, if I don't "love" the book but I liked it then I will search a local library for similar books from the author. Hope you can check out my answer and blog. Im a new follower of yours. Hope you can return the follow.

  5. I get random books sometimes but if I find an author that I just LOVE, then I will look into. I won't even plan to but I will find myself doing it automatically.

  6. That's almost the same with me. I'd rather let the book come to me than I go to the book.

  8. Hmm, I guess I DO like to seek out books by authors that I KNOW I'm in love with! And your playlist isn't random! Frank Sintara and Adele are both super awesome!!
