Book Blogger Hop

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop hosted by is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! So, go to, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list there!!

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun! This is a weekly event! And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added! We get over 200 links every week!!


Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.

1. Enter your book blog link in the Linky List.
In your link, please state the main genre that you review: eclectic, contemp. fiction, ya, paranormal, mystery, non-fiction, etc.       
Example: Crazy-for-Books (contemp. adult fiction)

2. Post about the Hop on your blog. Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier! In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!).

This week's question comes from Ellie who blogs at Musings of a Bookshop Girl:

"If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?"

3. Visit other blogs in the Linky List! Make new friends! Follow new book bloggers! Talk about books! Rave about authors! Take the time to make a quality visit! Check out other posts and content, make a new friend! Don't randomly follow someone if you never intend on actually following them! No spamming please! (Please do not leave your link and not visit other blogs - it's just not cool and not in the spirit of the Hop!)

And just as an FYI - this event is not something you should feel that you have to participate in every week. If you want to join in and link up once a month, GREAT! It's up to you how often you participate!

Oh, and this tour DOES NOT accept Twitter links. If you add them, they will be deleted.

Sooooo, here's my answer: I just went to a going-out-of-business sale at a Borders store, so this should be easy. Of course, things were 50-70% off so that made a difference, but...I would buy a classic that I have never read, a book for my Victorian Reading Challenge like "Jane Eyre", a book of poetry - a relatively short one, a hard-cover historical about a Queen, and a biography for my husband. That should do it!



  1. Hi
    Just hopping by and following through!
    Jane Eyre is a must have!

  2. I second Shelleyrae on the 'Jane Eyre' thing. It was the first classic I ever read and I still adore it now, about 15 years later.

    It took me ages to narrow my choices down (and it's my question, oops!), but my final, restrained list is here:

    Have a great weekend!

  3. I really MUST go to my neighborhood Borders this weekend, as they are having fabulous sales. I'm sad about the "going out of business" part, though.


  4. Hopping by:) Jane Eyre, yet another book I could think of having.I'm in awe of Sam:)

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

    The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

    Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list -

    Happy Hop Friday!

    Happy Weekend!
