BOOK BLOGGER HOP: April Fools

This week's Book Blogger Hop hosted by Crazy for Books is celebrating one of my favorite days of the year -- April 1.

Book Blogger 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!  So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list below!!

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun!  This is a weekly event!  And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added!  We get over 200 links every week!! 

RULES:

Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.
So, visit Crazy for Books and join the party.

This weekend's question is:

Since today is April Fool's Day in the USA, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you?

I don't have any particularly noteworthy pranks to relate, only silly little things of the "you had to be there" variety.

April 1 is a special day for me for a different reason. It's my wedding anniversary! Yes, we scheduled our wedding for April Fool's Day. It was a particularly busy point in our lives and we had to squeeze that ceremony in. The first weekend in April fit the best.

I think maybe my husband (then boyfriend) liked the idea because he imagined it might give him a last minute out. But he went through with the wedding after all, and we've been married twenty-two years. And as a bonus, he's never forgotten the date!

Happy April Fool's Day everyone!

  7. At first I wasn't going to participate in this week's Book Blogger Hop. I'm not even sure why.

    But here I am. And I'm glad! To dispel any false impressions people may have had about me being a old, stodgy fuddy-duddy I'm happy to share some of my very best pranks with you.

    Highlights include - low-grade explosives, eggs and salt shakers. Get all the side-splitting details over on my blog - http://www.howardsherman.net

    They date back to my younger years as a Brooklyn boy which brings about some introspection.

    I'm going to go pull some pranks today. Look out world! I'm coming out of prankster retirement!
