Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday (11-23-12)

Happy Friday everyone! Is everyone all full from turkey and mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie? I know that I certainly am ... did you go out shopping at 8 pm last night (or whenever the stores opened last night)? I did not partake in that experience, but I did go out to see the movie Lincoln last night and it was spectacular! Seriously, go out and see it. It doesn't matter if you are young, old, or somewhere in the middle, just go out and see it. Now, let's get onto the Friday fun ...

Jen at Crazy For Books asks:

The sound of silence: When reading, do you assign each character their own voice in your head, or do they all sound the same? Do they sound like you or someone else?

Every character has their own distinct voice in my head. They all sound different from one another and they don't sound like me or anyone else that I know.

Parajunkee asks:

Are you thankful for a fellow blogger? Tell us about him or her.

There are lots of bloggers who I am thankful for, but I will highlight The Broke and the Bookish. They host my favorite meme every week (Top Ten Tuesday) and it's just a great blog that they run. There is collection of bloggers (all in their early 20s) who come together and blog about what they are reading or whatever is on their mind. It's just a great blog and I encourage you to go and check it out!

So, what do characters sound like in your head? Who are you thankful for? Let me know and have a great weekend!


  1. I don't assign voices to my characters...stop by for my full answer if you like.

    I definitely am thankful for ALL the blogger friends I have made over the past few years. Book Bloggers are AWESOME and so helpful.

  3. I like to assign voices to characters. It makes reading seem more like a movie.

    Here's my Book Blogger Hop post.

    Hope you have a great weekend! Now following!

  4. Yup, I assign voices too :)

  5. I have a whole list of bloggers who have encouraged me.

    As far as voices go, I read the Iron Druid series in an Irish accent in my head until I listened to the audiobook and realized DUH Atticus is pretending to be American.
