Follow Friday and TGIF (3-16-12)

Happy Friday everyone! I hope that you are having some amazing weather in your corner of the world. Here in Pittsburgh, it's 71! And the forecast is saying that it might stay that way for a few more days! It definitely has me looking forward to summer and spending the time outside. Now, onto the Friday fun ...

Parajunkee asks:

What is the best book you've read in the past month? What is the worst book you've read in the past month?

The best book, hands down, The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach. My review will be up in a few weeks.

The worst? I would have to say The Forgotten Waltz by Anne Enright, and that review is actually scheduled to go up tomorrow,

GReads asks:

Social Networking: Do you use Twitter or Facebook to promote your blog?  How has it benefited your book blogging experience? If not, how do you promote your blog? Share your twitter handle and/or Facebook link!

I do not use either platform to promote my blog. For me, the best way to promote my blog is to participate in weekly memes (such as this one) and reach out to other bloggers and connect with them. I have been wondering about having a Twitter account for my blog, but haven't really put any effort into making one. Maybe that's a goal to consider for this year!

So, what has been the best and worst book of the past month? How do you promote your blog? I would love to here from people who use Twitter ... pros and cons of using it for your blog, if you connect with more people because of it, etc. Please let me know! And have a great weekend!

  1. So happy to hear you enjoyed The Art of Fielding - I'm looking forward to reading that soon. I don't use Twitter much - but definitely see the value in using it to connect to authors & publishers. For me, I don't have the time to stay actively engaged in it. I participate in a few memes like you, and leave lots of comments on blogs.
