Book Blogger Hop - July 3 to July 9, 2015 - hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer

Book Blogger Hop



I haven't participated in a Book Blogger Hop for a while, but I always enjoyed them. You get to visit other book blogs and see what other people are reading. There is also a question to answer each week. Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer has taken over the reins to this Book Blogger Hop so the fun can continue! 

Here is the prompt for the week of July 3 to July 9: 

Do you lend out your books to friends and family? 

Think of YOUR answer and write a comment to this post. Then go to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer and click on one or more of the other blogs listed to see what they say. 

Here is my answer: 

I gladly lend out my books to friends and family. Last month, I took our book club selection over to our library and offered it to anyone who wanted to read it. I told them I didn't need it back. I have enough books on my TBR shelf, I don't need another bookshelf of books I have already read, although I do keep a few if they are very special. 


High Summer Read-a-Thon by Seasons of Reading


Seasons of Reading

It's summer! Time to relax and read, and read, and read. Seasons of Reading is sponsoring the High Summer Read-a-Thon to help you do just that - relax and read! 

There really are no requirements to join this read-a-thon at Seasons of Reading. You do not have to have a blog. You can join from Facebook, Twitter, or Goodreads. Sign-up here

Children's books are allowed as long as you are also reading some adult selections. 

There will be one big giveaway at the end of the read-a-thon, but you must have participated in the read-a-thon to qualify. This means signing up and linking up your wrap-up at the end (winners are chosen from the wrap-up linky). 

The hashtag for this Read-a-Thon is #HSreadathon on Twitter (or Facebook). You can see the rest of the details for the Read-a-Thon here

Here is the read-a-thon credo as proclaimed by Seasons of Reading: a week of relaxed reading during which we can personally challenge ourselves and whittle away those ever looming TBR piles/shelves/libraries. So, no pressure...EVER! Enjoy!
