Hops, Follows, and Tag Alongs, Oh My!

It's time for another Book Blogger Hop, courtesy of Crazy for Books!

Book Blogger Hop

"If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?"

I would love to spend a day within the world of the carpet in Clive Barker's Weaveworld.

It's also time for the Friday Follow, courtesy of Parajunkee's View!

"It's circle time. Time for us to open up and share. Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...?"

Let's see: (1) I don't like it when different foods touch each other on my plate; (2) I always have to find or make the 'right' bookmark for what I'm reading; (3) I don't like talking on the phone; (4) My books, whether they're on a shelf or stacked beside the bed, absolutely MUST be in alphabetical order; and (5) I'm fascinated by old graveyards and abandoned buildings.

"Did you set yourself a reading goal?"

2011 Reading Challenge

2011 Reading Challenge

Sally has

read 52 books toward her goal of 100 books.


As always, I urge you to hop around to some new blogs, tag along with some new friends, and find some great new reviews to follow. I always find something new to delight me!


  1. Just stopping by from FF

    I'm an old follower! :)


    Feel free to stop by my blog -

  2. I haven't read the Weaveworld yet.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. As for visit to Mount Doom, yes IF one had a safe return guaranty, than sure, I'd check it out, too:)

  3. Thanks for stopping by, old follower :) I'm glad someone else collects rocks. :) My husband has gotten to the point where he just gives me one of those indulgent smiles every time I find a new rock. :) And I'm totally with you on not talking on the phone - I pretty much hate it. So happy for email and texting. :)

  4. Congrats on being halfway to your reading goal! I wish I could say the same...:( Have a great weekend!

  5. Hi, new follower stopping by for the hop, I'm the same way about my food, it all has to be in separate parts of the plate! LOL And I'm much more of a texter than to be on the phone.

    Stop by ours
    Under The Covers

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog! good luck with reaching your goal!
    Have a great weekend.

  7. Weaveworld is such a good book, although I liked Imajica a lot more.

    I was unoriginal and picked Harry Potter.

    New follower, love the name of your blog!

  8. Hopping through (old follower). I'm the same way about food on my plate! I hate when it touches, I always make sure to smush all my foods to the edge of the plate, and in smallish clumps so they don't touch lol.

    Happy Hopping!

  9. Haha,so nice to know all these quirks :D
    Checking out the amazon link to the carpet book right now!
    Thanks for the hop :)
    Dee, hopping from e-Volving Books

  10. My books aren't in Alphabetical order but they are grouped by series or but author

    18 and over Tag Along

  11. I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

    Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected –

  12. You're going to reach your goal in no time..Happy reading! Just stopping by on the Friday Follow & Tagalong, have a good weekend!

  13. I don't like my food to touch either! Oh and I eat my food one at a time. Usually vegetables first, then the next thing, then the next.

  14. Thanks for stopping by Bitten Books. I'm following your blog now too :)

    I hate talking on the phone too. If someone calls me, I'll let it go to voicemail and then text them back whatever they needed me for.

  15. Hopping through. I don't like graveyards. I still hold my breath when I drive by one.

  16. I hate talking on the phone too. Text messaging and email were the greatest inventions!

    I'm a new follower.

    Here's my Follow Friday

  17. Hi Sally, hoppin over on the 18+. Great goal, looks like your well on your way to reaching it. Hope you had a great weekend!

  18. Hopping by very late from last week's Hop. I'm a horror fan, but I'm ashamed to say I have never read any Clive Barker. : ( On my TBR list!
