Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday (Labor Day Weekend)

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy For Books.

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question:
Do you judge a book by it's cover?
Me? Absolutely!
Yes, I know I'm not supposed to, but how can I say no to a pretty face?! (examples)
I think a book's cover should reflect the book itself, and like I said, when I see something that looks good, I hope it is and I just buy it. haha.. Quite the strategy, huh? But It's actually worked out pretty well for me so far.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee.

This week's question is:
What is your favorite brick and mortar bookstore?
Hmm. For me, I'd have to say Barnes and Noble.
Most people like Borders but unfortunately, I've had nothing but problems with them and their service has always left me less than impressed. My favorite B&N is in San Antonio, Texas at La Cantera Mall (so far, because I haven't been to many), and I just found out it's Rachel Vincent's local bookstore too! Crazy! haha
That being said, I don't go to many bookstores and I go to even less libraries (but that's another story), and I do a lot of my book buying online. What can I say, I absolutely love amazon prime!
But, I do often fantasize about The Strand. I need to go there soon!

By the way, I just want to say hi to everyone!
It seems with school starting and such, I've been feeling a little out of it lately.
Anyway, to the new people-if you'd like to follow, please do so, it means a lot. (Follow at the top left-hand corner, though, since I have no GFC.)
And thanks! :)

I hope everyone has a nice, looong labor day weekend. I know I need it!



  1. Cute blog! Found you through the Hop and I'm now a follower. :]

    I also cannot wait for Elixir to be released; I'm interested to see how Hilary Duff writes.

    Have a good weekend!

  2. Hi to you! So how is school? As a school librarian I am excited to introduce all the new books I got this summer.


  3. I can't help but judge a book by its cover. What's the point of having a pretty one if I don't buy it? Seriously though, I do love books with great covers and YA has been doing really well in the cover category.

    I'm your newest follower!

  9. Just hopping by- I cant say I have ever bought a book based on the cover, but the covers to make me pick them up a read the jacket.


  10. I'm just stopping by to say hello and wish you a happy Friday. Yeah its finally here! :)I'm an old follower.

    Have a great weekend!!

  11. Just popping in via the hop to say hi! I can't say no to a pretty face either, which is why I sometimes buy a beautiful book without knowing what it's about:) Glad to be your newest follower!

  12. Just hopping by to say have a great weekend. I also judge a book by its cover, I think it's impossible not to.

  13. Hi there! I'm a new follower, and I found you around the blog hop :)

    I think my favourite bookstore would have to be the King's English in Salt Lake City, though I love any massive B&N!

  14. Cool blog! Stopping by from the hop. Have an awesome book party. :)

  15. Couldn't find the button to follow you. :/

  16. Hopping on by and saying hi! Your blog is so sweet looking :). I agree on how a cover should reflect the book within...ah pretty book covers.

  20. If you fantasize about the Strand, you should check out Powell's in Portland.

  21. I'm already a follower but just hopping on through! When I'm at the library or bookstore I definitely am more likely to check out more closely books with attractive covers. The cover only goes so far, though - if the description doesn't interest me then I'll keep looking!
