Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Rachel at the Parajunkee's View. Every week, book bloggers have a chance to connect and check out each other's blogs. Check it out to sign up and participate, or just check it out to check out some great blogs! This is my second week participating. This week's question:
If you have, or would have a daughter, what book would you want your daughter to read?
I don't have a daughter (or any kids for that matter), but if I did I would really encourage her to read the Tortall books by Tamora Pierce--especially The Immortals Quartet. Those books meant a lot to me as a kid, and pretty much turned me into a bookaholic, so I would hope that they would get her as excited about reading and fantasy as it did me. But then again, so long as she's reading at all, I'd be happy. I'll take the "librarian's motto" approach: The right book for the right child at the right time. That's the goal. There are too many books out there to recommended anyway!
And if you do one Follow meme, why not do two? The more the merrier! This is my third Book Blogger Hop.
The Book Blogger Hop is a meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books. Like Follow Friday, It's a place for book bloggers to connect, and "hop" from one another's blogs to get to know each other. Check it out to sign up and participate! Even if your blog doesn't get listed this week, you can view other people's blogs and make some friends. :P In addition, Jennifer also asks a question to kick off the conversations. This week's question:
What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?
I would want to build a tower in my house with a spiral staircase. At the top of the tower would be a small library, with shelves that took up the entire wall, filled with all of my favorite books. There would also be an oh-so-comfortable chair for reading in, and a freaking huge desk so I could spread out while I worked on writing for NaNoWriMo. I tend to get intense...and messy...when writing 2,000+ words a day. Oh, and there would totally be toy dinosaurs all around the place. Shoved in the shelves, on the desk, on the floor, hanging from the ceiling, etc. They'd be like...book guardians. Yes, book guardians sounds about right. They roamed the earth for millions of years, so why not roam my reading room? I think I have a new goal in life.
What about you guys? If you had a kid, what would you want her to read? Dr. Seuss? Little House on the Prairie? What about your bookish wish? Would do you want if you could get anything? To all of you returning visitors, thanks again for stopping by my blog, and to all you new visitors, welcome! If you leave a link to your website I'll be sure to check it out when I get home from classes today. Until then, happy Friday!
