Feature and Follow


Feature and Follow Friday is a blog hop that is designed to provide some much-appreciated exposure to the bloggers participating, and to expand their following. Hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, each of whom feature a chosen blog for the week, it's an interesting way to get to know one another.

If you would like to follow me, you can do so by GFC, Twitter or Linky .

I also make sure to go back and follow everyone that comments and I try to always follow twitter along with GFC/Linky. So if you have a twitter that is not on your page for some reason leave it in the comments and I will follow you that way too!


Q: We always talk about books that WE want. Let's turn it on its head. What books have you given other people lately?

My kids love books but I don't know if I count those. My 1 year old daughter always has her face in some kind of book.

I'm really the only big reader in my family so I can't say I buy anyone novels. The last book I bought for someone else was the WWE encyclopedia for my husband. I've also bought him various sports books and music encyclopedias. That's pretty much what he reads. It's strange because he is a writer as a profession but hardly ever reads.

My mom likes things like Anne Rice but she doesn't really read as much anymore I don't think. Although she likes mystery novels and sci-fi usually.

My dad is one of those people that can read something and recite it back to you word for word weeks later. I don't even understand how smart he is sometimes. He pulls dates of events and things out of thin air sometimes.

My brother reads history books, mostly art of war stuff. I found some encyclopedia of War stuff in his bathroom once. I'm like really....this instead of a magazine?

My other two brothers don't read.

So that's probably TMI on my family reading habits but hey.

  3. Hi, new follower. Glad to make your acquaintance. I can certainly sympathize with your husband; as a writer I find I have less and less time to read other people's stuff! Sad, but true....

  5. Oh, I think it's really interesting that your family has such varied reading habits! My mom is the only other person in my family that reads as much as I do, so I know I can count on her to be up for bookish talks and recs.

    New follower! Here's my FF.
