Follow Friday (3) & Book Blogger Hop (4)

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 third week participating. This week's question:

How long have you been book blogging?

I started book blogging back in...July? Wow, it doesn't feel like it's been 5 months! However, I still feel like I'm new to the book blogging scene because I don't participate in a lot of they other popular memes, such as Waiting on Wed. Hm...Maybe I should start? :P

Book Blogger Hop

And if you do one Follow meme, why not do two? The more the merrier! This is my Fourth 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:

Since Thanksgiving is coming up next week, let's use this week's Hop to share what we are most thankful for and what our holiday traditions are!

Oh man, where to start? I'm really thankful for my family, friends, the fact that I have a working computer (which, without it, I wouldn't be able to post this), a promising pile of TBR books on my shelf...Really, pretty much everything that is in my life right now I'm thankful for. As for Thanksgiving traditions, I don't really have any. My parents are divorced, so I've always spent half of Thanksgiving at one house, and half of it at the other. We always do something different too. One year, my dad took us up north to have a fancy lobster dinner. Another, we went to the movies. Another, we stayed at home and built rocket ships with Legos. So I guess the tradition is in not having one? Either way its fun.

What about you guys? 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!

Hey! Old follower just stopping by for FF. I've been blogging for a little over 2 months now. So far I'm loving it! I'm Canadian so our Thanksgiving was last month, but regardless of the holiday I'm thankful for each and every day. Have a great weekend and happy reading!

Oh Emi, m'dear! We started around the same time. :D Sort of. I didn't really start blogging until September - I spent all of August in Texas. xD But yeah, it really doesn't feel long at all. I'm sure when 1, 2, or 3 years goes by, I'll still consider myself a newbie! :P

So yeah, you need to move in with me so we can get a tradition going to gorge ourselves on Thanksgiving food until we puke. :D

New follower! Your blog is adorable :)

How long is too long?

I was blogging from my official website about the interactive fiction books
I was writing before the words "blog" and "blogging" entered the English
language.

And I blogged a lot about many things -- not just books.

I need to blog off topic a little more, I think. I don't want people to the
idea I'm too two dimensional!

Thank God It's Follow Friday!

Enjoy the weekend!

Hello my dear,

I'm hopping around this fine night...  I'm thankful for my boys, the three kitties I just acquired, and time travel.

The Mad Scientist is starting a Reading Bucket List challenge for 2011... It should be a fun way to get some books read.  Sign up if it is something you'd like to try.

I'm also doing a week tribute of sorts for Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate Series.  Today is a tribute to the Scruffy Scottish Werewolf.

Hopping through. You should participate in the big meme's if you think they're fun - but not if you don't want to. Blogging is all up to you!
