Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday August 13 – 16

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.

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

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

Question of the week:

How many books do you have on your ‘to be read shelf’?

I don’t have a ‘shelf,’ I have a room! And a half!  This question would be like trying to guess how many gumballs have been poured into a VW Bug.  Guess the number, win the car!  Who gets the gumballs?  I’d be the person who got the gumballs.  That is how many books I have in my TBR mountain!

    Hey, I got to you from Parajunkee. I see you read a lot of manga. I love Sarasah, the manhwa that is. Though manhwa tends to somehow start with a strong premise and then hit its peak and go steadily downhill. Have you read the one where the girl has a pig mask, the title escapes me. But it’s one of the better ones out there.

    @Nafiza – YES! Pig Bride! I do like that one, and Sarasah, too! 13th Boy started out as a dud, but I really like it now – you might want to give that a try if you haven’t already 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. Road trip as plot device? Sounds like nearly all of the early quest type fantasy novels.

    Yup…my TBR pile is like that too. Happy Friday The 13th!

    Hey Just returning the favor and hoping by! Yeah it took a lot of time and a lot of boxes to pack up all my books! Not to mention to keep the ones I havent read separate from the ones I have read! Oh well!! Have a great weekend!!

    Hey! Already a follower, just wanted to wish you a happy weekend! And thanks for stopping by at my blog :). I can’t believe you have a whole room full of books!

  • August 13, 2010 at 10:02 am

    A room and a half! Wow!

    I wanna be the person who got the gumballs, too! LOL!

    Happy Reading,
    The Unread Reader

    Stopping by, even though I’m already a follower. :]

    Everybody seems to be waiting to read Ballad! I really hope I enjoy it, after all the hype it’s been getting.

    Have a great weekend!

    I’m drowning in books to read. Includes ARCs, pre-pub, and ebooks. *Just hopping in*

    LOL, I love the gumballs in the VW bus reference! It’s a good way to picture our TBR mountains!

    Just hopping by. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and following it! I really appreciate it. I haven’t seen that many manga sites. I like that you mix that in with some YA.

    I’m a new follower.

    Have an awesome day!

    Love the reference to gumballs and the VW! Great comparison, but wow! That’s a lot of books!
    Just stopping by from the blog hop! Thank you so much for visiting my site earlier!

    Hi! Im stopping by on the hop! Nice place you have here! Im a new follower! Have an amazing weekend! : )

  • August 13, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    Thanks for visiting The Window Seat Reader! Very creative comparison of the amount of books you have and gumballs in a VW! Hope you have a great weekend.

  • August 13, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    Haha! Always too many TBRs. I’d rather guess the M&Ms. You can have too many gumballs, but never enough M&Ms 🙂

  • August 13, 2010 at 6:32 pm

  • August 13, 2010 at 11:52 pm

    Feels like my TBR pile! I use goodreads to keep track of it, but I’m ashamed to say the numbers probably higher then I could imagine.

    Enjoy your weekend.

    Hi there, found you on the hop! You have a room! That’s a luxury I don’t have unfortunately. But my TBR pile keeps on growing anyway.
