Book Blogger Hop Challenge Results
Who I Followed and Why:
I actually discovered a couple of blogs that I really like last week, including Rabid Reads. I like Carmel’s range of coverage, and she is reading a lot of books on my wish list. I tried to comment on most of her posts over the last week 🙂
My favorite post from last week is her review of Halfway to the Grave, which is a title I have been thinking about reading for a while. Now that I have been convinced, I just need to find the time to fit it into my reading schedule. Thanks, Carmel!
Question of the Week:
"If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title?"
Yes, I always try to start with the first book in the series. It is so hard to develop a connection with the characters if you don’t understand them or lack information on their backgrounds. Plus, I figure that the books were written in order for a reason 😛
Question of the week:
What is your usual monthly book budget?
Lately, it’s been pretty non-existent. With the holidays creeping up, I have been saving my pennies so I can spoil my family with presents. Instead of buying books, I have been visiting the library more than normal. Usually, it’s about $50 a month, though.
