Book Blog Hop, Follow Friday, and TGIF (7-27-12)

Happy Friday everyone! Are you ready for the Olympics this evening? I know I am! I love the Olympic Games and cannot wait for the Opening Ceremonies to begin. I even requested the day off so that I wouldn't miss a second of the pageantry! Now, onto the Friday fun ...

Parajunkee asks:

Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. No contest!

GReads asks:

Christmas in July: If Santa were to come down your chimney in the middle of summer, which books would 
you want him to leave for you under the tree?

Wow, there are so many! I really want some of the leather-bound copies of the Barnes & Noble classics. So, I would love to find those under the tree!

Jen at Crazy For Books asks:

Blogging Question: What is one thing that your blog readers probably do not know about you?

Great question! I think that there are lots of things that my readers don't know about me, but I will go ahead and share this little tidbit: I used to work at Walt Disney World. I love everything Disney and could sit and talk about the company for hours and never get bored. Honestly, I'm one of the biggest Disney geeks that you might ever meet!

So, what was your favorite required reading in school? What would you like for Christmas (in July)? What don't I know about you? Let me know, and have a great weekend!


  1. "To Kill A Mockingbird" is definitely one of my faves as well! I also really enjoyed the movie. :D
