Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday – February 25th-27th

Check out my current contests while you’re visiting!  Click here for your chance to win awesome books!

It’s Friday! Time to discover new blogs to follow!   Blog Hop is a meme held every weekend and it is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.  It’s a great way to find book blogs that you might now know about.

Question of the Week:

"Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?”

Yes, there are times, six years after I started it, that I wish I had named my blog something different.  When I first started blogging, my schedule was so hectic that I only had time to read graphic novels, and honestly, at that point in my life, I was happy with my comics.  The manga “revolution” was going strong, there were a ton of manga publishers, and even more new titles coming out.  Fast forward to now, and the economy has cut the number of manga publishers in half, and I have started reading prose novels again.  Now the blog name doesn’t quite gel, but I have been using it for so long that I am reluctant to change it!  Why is hindsight always 20/20?

 

Rachel from Parajunkee is hosting Follow Friday, which is another fun way to meet new bloggers.  Check out Parajunkee’s blog here.

Question of the week:

Share your current fav television show! Tell us a bit about it…

I have an embarrassing confession to make – I don’t watch TV.  It is a rare day indeed when I sit down to watch something.  While the BF spends a lot of his free time channel surfing, I would rather sit down with a book or peruse the internet.  Occasionally a show that he has on will attract my attention, but that doesn’t happen very often.  The last show that I was super excited about was Babylon 5, so that should give you an idea about how long it has been since I watched anything!  I would like to watch Vampire Diaries and True Blood, but I get bored with the TV so I haven’t made the effort to sit down and watch them.  What are your must see shows?

If you are visiting from the Blog Hop, please leave a comment so I can stop by your blog to say hi!

    My current must see shows are White Collar and The Vampire Diaries and Naruto Shippuuden but I keep up to date with the Japan release dates so I watch those episodes online. White Collar I have to watch online as well cause I keep forgetting to tune into the TV on Tuesday nights. The Vampire Diaries become more suspenseful with each episode so when Thursday 8pm comes around I’m parked in front of the TV. If my internet speed was faster though I’d probably wait the next day to watch it online so I could avoid the commercials. Maybe you can rent the DVDs for the show or buy them. I’m going to buy them now that the price isn’t $40 anymore.

    I can understand your reluctance to change your blog name after so long. For what it’s worth, I like it. And, you still read quite a bit of manga so it still fits. :)

    The downfall of Manga publishing hurts. ^_-

    That’s what I tried to do when creating my blog, come up with a name that would let me expand my reading anyway I want to!!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I try not to watch too much TV. I don’t know how I would ever get all my reading done if I watched TV a lot!

    Thanks for stopping by, new follower as well! I almost never actually watch my shows on TV, except Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice. The rest I usually end up watching on Hulu since I like to read or surf the net as well.
