FRIDAY
Photobucket

Hosted by An Island Life

From An Island Life:
  In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
  If you’d like to participate, visit An Island Life answer the question and then post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!


My Question:
What is your desktop picture?
My Answer:
My 4 kids..my 2 sons and their girlfriends.

Book Blogger Hop

Hosted by Jennifer from CRAZY FOR BOOKS

  In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! 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 that they may not know existed! So, 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 below!!
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.
If you start following someone through the Hop, leave a comment on their blog to let them know! Stop back during the week to see other blogs that are added! And, most importantly, the idea is to HAVE FUN!!

“What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?”My Answer:
When that happens, I wish I knew why. It feels like I am losing a friend but don’t know what I did. However, I have stopped following some blogs if they haven’t posted in a month or so. I also may stop following if we no longer have the same genres in common

Today’s Twist:
“What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?”
My Answer:
It would be the newest model of either the Nook and/or Kindle.  I have a Sony EReader but it doesn’t have a back light nor wireless d/l which I think a 2 important features, at least for my needs.

This week’s twist:
“Where is your favorite place to read?  Curled up on the sofa, in bed, in the garden?”
My answer:
It depends on the time of year.  Now that it is getting cold, it would be in my recliner wrapped in an afghan in my new, but not completely finished, office/library.  During the summer it is sitting by or on a float in the pool.
