I'm so excited!!
My first Hop!
"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!"
Just what I need...
more books and more book blogs to read
This week's question is:
"When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?"
I'm OCD about this kind of stuff...I have to finish it. I'm one of those geeks who read almost everything I was ever assigned in school. Now, I can't promise I was fully engaged in whatever the book was...I just had to read it. I still do.
When I'm choosing books I try to stay away from genres I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I do not enjoy...I am not a fan of "romance" novels, for example, and there are certain authors that because of prior negative experiences I won't even consider giving another try (Nicholas Sparks). I can also usually pick up a book in the bookstore that I'm not sure about and read a page or two and know whether or not to even give it a try. I was hesitant to read the Dexter books bc of this very reason; of course, halfway through, I'm glad I gave it a go...
I probably miss some good books by being so picky...but that's also why I love to read book blogs. I've found more than a few books on other people's blogs that I might not have read otherwise.
Come on over to Crazy for Books and Hop around with me!!!
