Book Blogger Hop/Follow Friday/Update

Hello to all my new and old visitors.  Thanks for stopping by!  Here's a look at what happened this week here on the blog!  Looks like this year (so far) I've read 61 books!  That's around 5 books a month, if I did the math right.  Geez Louise!  I'm a bit disappointed in that number, but I have a month and a half left to pick it up!

How Long Have You Been Blogging?
Answer:  Only counting the months that I actually kept up with posts, I've been blogging almost a year!  Time sure flies when your having fun!!! This is the first time I'm participating in FF.  I hope to make it another weekly staple here!

Book Blog Hop 

Book Blogger Hop

"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!"
My Answer: On Thanksgiving, we always eat a huge family dinner.  Usually, my grandfather and uncle's family come (which includes 3 kids under 5!).  This year, we are eating at my other grandfather's house, meaning we'll have around 15 or so people with us!  Geez Louise!

Review: Avalon High Movie (With Spoilers)

Good news!  Come December, I'm looking to host a contest (open to US and Canada)! Here's the deal, though. My goal is to hit 95-100 followers to make that happen.  That's only around 20 shy of what I have now.  Details are still in the works, but I invite you to take a peek at my blog and if you like the content, 'follow' me.  Make sure to make note of it in a comment, so I can check your blog out, too!

Also, my friend recently opened up a blog herself.  Check it out here!

And lastly, if you haven't checked out the 'Dream Bigger Reinvention' contest, I suggest you do so now!  

Have a dream or new years resolution you need a bit of help achieving?   All you need to do is write up a quick paragraph on your dream and you'll have a chance to win tons of really great prizes.  Me, I want the butterfly necklace most, but who could pass up all the life coaching prizes involved in this giveaway?!  Enter away!

I stumbled upon this the other day on YT.  I think it's one of the best book related videos I've seen on YT for a while!  For all you Hunger Games fans,  it's worth checking out.  If you haven't read the book, it includes very big spoilers surrounding Katniss and Rue.  I suggest Kleenex if you are at all emotional! *NOTE* Watch on YT if the layout cuts off the right side of your video!***

Thanks for peeking at BBOB's and have a good hop, guys!

Hopping through! I'm a follower. Welcome to the hops!
I've been book blogging about 6 months. I had a food/fitness blog before that. Book blogging is more fun, I think.

Hey! I'm your newest follower just stopping by for FF. 5 books a month is nothing to be ashamed of! Unfortunately we don't spend all of our time in a book, even though many of us would! I've been blogging for 2 months now and so far so good! Have a great weekend and happy reading!

Thanks for hopping by my blog!

We are having a quiet Thanksgiving this year, and I am looking forward to it! Just the two of us, and we are eating out, so I don't even have to worry about cleaning up. YAY!

Have a great weekend!

How long have I been book blogging? Too long!

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

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!
