BBAW: Unexpected Treasures

Today’s blog topic for Book Blogger Appreciation Week is this: what books have you tried because of the influence of other book bloggers? There are quite a few books in my queue because of reviews from other bloggers.  Here are a few things I’ve read recently: Classics —  I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how many…

It’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week!

This week is Book Blogger Appreciation Week! BBAW celebrates the community of book bloggers — its theme this year is A Treasure Chest of Infinite Books and Infinite Blogs, because we find so many interesting new books to read through book blogs.  That has certainly been true for me.  This virtual event includes daily blogging…

This Week’s Hop: Favorite Reviews

The subject of this week’s Crazy-for-Books blog hop is an easy one — we’ve been asked to link to our favorite book reviews or posts. Here are two favorite reviews: Fahrenheit 451 — this was such an amazing book it gave me so much to think and write about.  I also learned more about Ray…

How I Read: A Survey

This Week’s Blog Hop

On this week’s Blog Hop, the question is “What book are you dying to get your hands on?” Well I would always like to get my hands on first edition Oz books, so I’d really really like a beautiful first edition Wizard of Oz.  But I think that’s not quite the point of the question. …

The Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a way for book blogs to find each other.  As part of the Book Blogger Hop, we are supposed to say our name and why we started blogging.  I’m a very new blogger so I’m forgoing my real name  just yet –in the blogging world I’m going by CurlyGeek —…
