Yeay! It’s Friday…..I’ve survived the first week back to school To celebrate, I get to play some of my favorite weekly memes. To start with, Parajunkee hosts a “Follow my Book Blog Friday” every week. You can link up to her blog and find often 200+ book blogs to wander through. Also take the time to wander through her Book Bloggin 101 feature. Tonight I think I have learned to put progress bars in place for my reading challenges. If you see them there, I was a good student, if not, well…..
Parajunkee wants to know this week what we’ve learned new from blogs this week. I work part time in a high school library and I’ve been wandering around looking for YA titles to suggest to the librarian. There are quite a few voracious readers that are always looking for suggestions! Thanks for all the ideas!
The second Friday meme I’m going to play is “Book Blogger Hop” hosted by Jennifer from Crazy-for-books. This is also a popular blog hop and also attracts over 200+ blogs. Jennifer’s question today is: What book influenced/changed your life?
Wow! That’s a difficult question! I’m a voracious reader! I read anything an everything, but what probably started me really going with reading was the Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys/ Bobbsey Twins series. I would read them as fast as my mom would buy them! Quite a few books over the years have been meaningful in certain ways – I could identify with certain characters, or the story was particularly heart wrenching, but to me, just starting on the path to independent reading was most important!
Join me on this blog hop also.
For those of us a bit long in the tooth, but young in the spirit, join Java at Never Growing Old. Since it is Friday, she takes pity on us and doesn’t expect us to answer difficult questions, just link up to her blog and go visiting! Come join me on this one also!
