Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday! (8-5-11)

Happy Friday, everyone! I know I sure am excited for this week to be over. It has been a long week at work and I'm EXHAUSTED! I definitely need a vacation! If you are an old follower, welcome back! If you are hopping through, welcome! I love to meet other bloggers and check out your blog, so leave me a comment and I will definitely hop on over! 

Jen at Crazy for Books asks: 

“What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?”

I would love to get my hands on a copy of Kristin Hannah's Home Front. It's coming out the beginning of next year, but after reading two of her books this past month, I really can't wait to read another!

Parajunkee asks:

Q. Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?).

HHmm .... great question! I don't know if I can pinpoint one book that had the greatest influence on my reading. I would have to say the books that made me an avid reader were the Berenstein Bear books. When I was little, I could sit and read those books for hours! I remember my parents reading them to me, and then my delight as I learned to read and I could read by myself. Those books, more than anything else I can recollect, made me an avid reader and a lover of books.

So, what ARC are you wanting to get your hands on? And which book influenced you the most? I would love to hear your answers, so leave me a comment! Happy Friday!

  7. Awesome choice! I remember those books fondly! At one point, before my house burned down, I think I owned them all. Each book had a good lesson without being too "preachy." Thanks for reminding me of those books!
