TGIF and Follow Friday (11-11-11)

Happy Friday, everybody! I hope that you are enjoying the fall weather and getting some reading done before the madness of the holidays starts. I seem to be slowing down on my reading, but I have a few books coming up that I have been wanting to read for sometime now, like An American Heiress. Can't wait to get to that soon! So, onto the Friday fun ...


Parajunkee asks:

In light of 11-11-11 and Veteran's Day tell us about your favorite soldier and how he or she is saving the world (real or fictional).

Well, I don't know if I have a favorite soldier. I'm so appreciative of all of the men and women who have fought and died for our country and sacrificed so much so that I could have my freedom. 


GReads asks:

Love-Hate Relationship: Which characters from a book do you love to hate?

Such a great question! Dolores Umbridge is definitely someone I love to hate. Anytime I reread the Harry Potter series, I just seethe with anger.

Which character do you love to hate? And make sure to thank a veteran for their service today! Happy Friday, everyone!

  2. Some people have friends and/or family who served or who is serving in the military. Other people aren’t really keen on the long-standing war and really have no answer at all.

    As for me? I don’t know anyone who is serving or who has served so I decided to go with what I want and chose a fictional soldier as an answer. The thing is, I had four prime candidates! I did eventually end up with one with a lengthy explanation. Care to know who it is? Follow me back to http://www.howardsherman.net and find out!

    In celebration of today’s cool date of 11/11/11 I’m offering a special $11 discount off all my interactive fiction books! Sure I’m a book blogger but I’m also an author. All the details of the $11 off on 11/11/11 is at the bottom of my Follow Friday blog post.

    Since I’m posting this kind of late just add 'FF’ to the coupon code and it’ll be valid all weekend long!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!
