Book Blogger Hop 7/29-8/1

Come join in the fun at the book blogger hop hosted by Crazy-for-Books
Book Blogger Hop

Welcome to the NEW Book Blogger Hop!
Are you a book blogger? Are you a reader? Then welcome to the place where all of us connect over the weekend and chat about books!
Not sure what a book blogger is and if you are one? Do you have a blog? Do you blog about books? Do you write book reviews on your blog? Do you rave about books and authors on your blog? Is your blog content primarily about books? Then you are most likely considered a book blogger!
How it Works
As long as you meet the qualifications of a book blogger, you may add your book blog link into the linky list at Crazy-for-Books. But before you do that, there are a few requirements. Read up, to save yourself a headache with the linky! :)

1. Before you add your link, you must post about the Hop on your blog and link directly back to THIS POST AT CRAZY FOR BOOKS (not just the domain, but the direct post for this Hop). The linky is going to review the link that you enter in your submission, looking for a link to this post on your blog. If it doesn’t find one, your link will not be approved. This is called back linking and I had to institute it because people were taking advantage of the Hop and getting some free advertising without promoting the Hop themselves. You can read more about this here.

2. While you are creating your post, answer the following question (there’s a new prompt each week)!
“Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!”

My answer is the same as my Mailbox Monday answer. Only one new book (for me) came into my house this week: Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger. I bought it at the Borders going out of business sale. It came highly recommended by my sister -- years ago. Now that I own it, I'm determined to move it to the top of my TBR pile and see if it's as wonderful as she said.


  1. I haven't read any Salinger's books yet. Catcher in the Rye is on my TBR list, though. Maybe, I'll have to look into Franny and Zooey.

  2. I’ve seen a lot of interesting shirts on the different blogs. With the non-stop coverage of debt ceiling doomsday I’ve got to show you the t-shirt that describes me to a tee – at least this week! Follow me back to my blog and prepare to fall out of your chair laughing –

    We’ve just gotta laugh, right? Life’s too short after all!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

  3. Hey just hopping by!
    I've just finished off Catcher In The Rye last month so it's good to hear of another Salinger novel I can sink my teeth into. Have a great weekend,

  4. Just dropping by for the blog hop. I haven't read that book.
