Friday Following & Hopping (#24)

Happy Friday, and this is one of those weeks when I must say T. G. I. F. It's been quite a week!  Hello to everyone stopping by my blog via Follow Friday (hosted by paranormal queen Parajunkee).  I'd also like to welcome any of my old followers just dropping in to say hi. :)  I will be out of town (and far away from Wi-Fi range) at our place in the mountains of Tennessee for Memorial Day Weekend, but leave me your links and I'll be sure to return the visit and the follow once I return to civilization!  Just so you know, I currently have a giveaway going on: the Vampire Extravaganza, in which I'm giving away a half dozen vampire-related books.  Feel free to check it out while you're here!

This week's featured blogger over at FF is: Louise from Book Bliss.

And the question is:

How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?

My answer:  


I typically read an average of four books a week, and usually at least one e-galley.  I have a hard time with those, because whenever I get on the computer, all I want to do is blog, which can be very distracting!  I read in class a lot, and while I'm blow-drying my hair... pretty much all the time.  I'm lucky to have access to a constant supply of books at my local-ish library, which has a great YA section!

Hope you guys have a great weekend, and I wish you happy hopping and a fantastic Memorial Day!

wow, I wish I read more than I do. I suppose if I just took the time to do so more often, I could read more...but sometimes I do get distracted by other things. haha

Hopping through. I'm about the same. 3-4 per week with 1 or 2 of those e-galleys.

Hi and Happy Friday!

I try to read between 3-5 books a week, depending on time & book size :)

My FF is here,

Have a nice weekend.

Wow, you read incredibly fast! If I could only multi-task like you! Oh and by the way, your blog is spectacular! I love the design! I'm a new follower! Here's my FF, if you want to check it out:

4 a week is quite a lot! I barely make it to 2 per week! If only I had more time... :) Thanks for sharing and happy reading!

Loren Chase said...

I have the exact same problem! All I want to do it blog when I get on the computer so I end up putting the e-galley behind all the windows I have open and it takes me forever to read! Happy Friday! ;)

That's awesome you have access to a great library! Have fun in the mountains. That sounds beautiful.

It's good you have access to a great library. My local library is lacking in decent ya fiction.

Liking you blog.

You lucky, lucky girl!! I consider myself fortunate if I can through one book per week! I have TWO jobs -- one, a full-time, and the other a part-time, so I don't have much time to read. And now I'm blogging, too! I do try to read whenever I can, but still...

Hope you have a FABULOUS Memorial Day weekend! I took Friday and next Tuesday off (except I do have to work Tuesday night, GRR!), which means I can do some serious reading (and blogging!).

@Maria-- Awesome! Hope you have a great extended break, and get to read, read, read! :)

This was a nice book blogger question. My answer will probably embarrass me in comparison with my peers!

Follow me back to my blog at prepare to be stunned –

Thank G-d it’s Follow Friday with a long weekend ahead. Everyone enjoy!

Four books a week sounds fantastic! I would love to read that many but sadly it is unlikely.

Louise said...

Wish I could read 4 books a week, I really want to read more than I do. I got my first e-galley yesterday, can't wait to get stuck into it!
