Book Blogger Hop

This week's Questions is...

 "If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?"

Well, that is a very interesting question. I certainly wouldn't want to be put in a series where I had to fight for my life - which rules out a ton of books. But, now that I am thinking, I honestly cannot come up with a series where I wouldn't have to (at least that I've read). That's quite surprising. I guess I will go with The Katherine "Kitty" Katt series - because I love all of the characters, I could be BFF's with Kitty, and I think that her team of totally awesome aliens could teach me how to throwdown - so I would be able to protect myself :) Plus, I would probably end up with a super hot alien! To bad, Jeff is taken :(

I also participate in Follow Friday, so those of you who popped by from that, thank you - and thank you parajunkee for hosting it!   

This Week's Follow Friday Question is..

Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100factsaboutme, give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.

1. If I read an ebook that I really love, I have to buy the actual book too.

2. Like Rebecca, I read EVERYWHERE... in class, at stoplights, at gas stations, while walking, at the gym, pretty much everywhere I shouldn't. 

3. I buy multiple copies of books sometimes, especially the paperback ones that get those horrible spine lines :( I also buy multiple copies so that I can have matching sets

4. I do not organize my books in any sort of logical manner, I keep series together, but I mainly just do what looks pretty

5.  I NEVER write in my books - not even textbooks. I cannot make myself deface any sort of book. I just buy lots of those little post-it page markers - you know the ones that come in different colors? I've been using these but I just stumbled on these babies when I was trying to find a link - I think I am going to have to give those a try :) Those look more efficient because you mark the actual lines, instead of the page.

Great facts :-) Love that you never write in your books!

Hey there! Hopping through blog hop. Have a great weekend :)

Vicky said...

Nice answers! My books are in no particular order at the moment either - it's just how they look pretty! :D Happy Hopping!

Aimee said...

I'm the same way! I leave notes (not sticky notes) in my books if I need to but I never write in them! I'm already a follower! My FF is at Coffee Table Press

Al said...

i can't write in books either. I can't even FOLD a page. I will lose my spot in the book before I fold a page.

I am with you! If I read an ebook and love it, I MUST buy it. I love your entire list! Books looking pretty is important to me as well.

I'm addicted to my Nook, but if I loved the ebook then I definitely have to buy a hard copy too! My husband thinks this is a strange habit! Ha! Totally showing him this post!

Apologies in advance for my answer this week as it will not immediately resonate with the book blogger population which happens to be 99.5% female.

My choice is a book series geared towards guys which won’t enthrall the vast majority of my fellow book bloggers (who are almost entirely female) with the extensive discussion of powerful weapons and sexy milspec gear, beautiful women, eye-popping action sequences (with occasionally obscene violence), and the like.

But there IS something in my answer that just about everyone of the female persuasion can benefit from my decidedly “books for guys” post. Hop on over to to find out what it is.

Happy Hop Friday!

Hopping through. I only own multiple copies of the Twilight and Harry Potter books. I never used to write in books, but started highlighting in law school b/c it was basically necessary.

I like your 5! I have a really hard time writing in books too, even when it was necessary for school, I had to basically FORCE myself to do it. I felt like I was committing a crime every time I used my highlighter or underlined a passage!

And yet, I am fascinated when I come across a book in a used bookstore or garage sale, and I open it to see that is has writing in the margins, I would probably buy the book even if the subject didn't look interesting to me. Just to read what the other person thought about it.

Guess that's why I love book blogs so much - get to know what other people think about books without defacing the books themselves! :)

Have a great Friday night,
