Book Blogger HOP #12 / Week In Review

October 22-25 2010


Hosted by Jen at 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 share our love of the written word! 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 to read!

click on the title for the answer to this week's question


"Where is your favorite place to read?
Curled up on the sofa, in bed, in the garden?"



I'll read anywhere and everywhere from in the car to the treadmill to sitting in the movie theatre waiting for the movie to start (the book was too good to put down) But my favorite place to read would definitely be snuggled under my quilt on my bed. When I'm escaping into a book I like to be as comfortable as possible and my bedroom also happens to be the quietest place in my house.

Happy hopping! I'm already a follower, so in answer to this week's question - I like reading on the couch...preferably when it's snowing outside and by a roaring fire :)

Ginger said...

You read in the movie theater before a movie starts?! That's crazy! lol I've never heard that one before.
Come see what's happening at GReads!

Ah, another one who reads on the threadmill. Someone else mentioned that, too! I read on the crosstrainer (with alternating hands holding the book). It makes a work-out so much easier!

Happy weekend.

I always fall asleep when I try to read in bed. Ok well except for last week when I was sick and I read off my phone, but that doesn't count!


Hop on by :D

Mel said...

Stopped by on the hop and now a new follower!
I have to admit I've read in a cinema before waiting for a film to start - thought that was my personal secret - glad I'm not the only one! :)

Jessica said...

Im an old follower :) Goinn off to see your reviews now - a couple of books looked interesting.
How does reading on the treadmill work for you though? I have thought about it - but do you have to walk very carefully and not run?

I will read anywhere, too, but I prefer the upstairs bedroom. It's quieter there :)
