Follow Friday and Blog Hop Friday


This feature is hosted by Parajunkee!
So, this is how we do it, you go to her fabulous website, you link yourself in the linky tool and then you follow all us other fabulous people and check out our answers.

Today's Question is:

Q. What do you do when you're are not reading?

Well, I work... yes, I'm actually a normal boring person, I work for a living. I also love to blog (although my blogger seems not to like me so much the past few weeks) and I hang out with family and with my puppy dog Yuki (yes, who's name I got from a book :) couldn't help myself). But I love to read and when I'm not reading, well then I wish I was reading... and sometimes I go in to this reading slump and I hate that! I also sleep when I'm not reading, because that is required of a human being lol, and I watch movies... usually some book that was made into a movie, again I can't stay away!

So tell me what you do when you're not reading?


This fun feature is hosted by our dear friend over at Crazy-for-Books
It works much the same as Follow Friday. So check out her lovely blog, check out the rules and then link yourself in the cool linky tool. Remember to follow some of the other friends on the list!

This weeks question is:

How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperback swap?

Well, I'm very ordinary when it comes to buying books, I love the real deal, therefore I love going in to my local bookstore and checking out the books they have there. They have a new Oxford Classics collections which I'm totally addicted to! I love collecting the classics... I do also love the library, I tend to read the books there and if I love the book I will go buy my own copy. I just get angry when some people mistreat their books, makes me sad and mad! I'm not much of a whizz when it comes to buying things online... but I'd love to, if I knew how, but somehow it stresses me out a little... go figure.

So, tell me what your answer is? Follow me and I'll follow back!


I went to see the movie on Wednesday and it was FANTASMAGORIES! I loved it so much, and now I'm sad that it's all over... The movie really was a great ending to a great series. I love JK Rowling, I can truly say that she has changed my life! The books are my all time favorites and the movies just depicts everything you dreamt of in the books. What a fabulous series you have been Harry.

Have you gone to see the movie?
If you did, what did you think?

Blogger has been annoying and I kinda hate the draft version of the editor. It has SO many issues.

Thanks for stopping by!

thanks for the follow! following back!

don't you sometimes hate that sleep is a requirement! i could be so much more productive (or READ so much more) if i didn't have to sleep!

Whitney said...

Blogger has been irking me too, but I see it as a sign to read more while its sorting out their issues. Have a great weekend!

Niecole said...

Rie, Marla and Whitney, blogger surely is driving me up the wall. Agree with you Whitney... more time for reading.

Thanks for the follow everyone!
Richard, sleep is such a pain :)

Lauren B said...

I also enjoy movies, especially those adapted from books.

Lovely answer Niecole - sleep is good, but can be aggravating when you just want to read a couple more pages, but your eyes keep closing. Perhaps you carry your books into your dreams? (But let's avoid getting too Freudian here).

I also hate it when I pick up a library book and find that someone has mistreated it. You expect books to get a bit worn from general use, but when it's torn and written in I could have a fit. My mom helped out at a library when I was young, so it's rubbed off on me.

Have a great weekend!

Ugh-I had a ton of blogger problems in May but it has since improved for me so I hope it does for you too! I'm currently in a bit of a reading slump and that usually happens only once or twice a year for me but I really hate when it does happen.

I’m seeing a pattern of book acquisition here. After all, there are just so many places to get books and so many different ways to read them.

It’s hard to beat the library for price and selection but it’s even harder to beat the convenience of browsing BN or Amazon from a Nook or Kindle, hitting a button and reading the book you picked in about sixty seconds.

As usual, my answer to this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is all over the map. Hop on over and read my multipart answer –

I wish I could sleep more. Especially since it is required of humans (and healthy too).

Blogger has been upset with me lately too, but I'm loyal to a fault and just put up with it. I had a blogger account for my personal blog since 2004 and never had any issues till now. I figure I can deal with this since I haven't had any such problems over such a long period of time. But it is soooo annoying.

Hopping through. How'd you see HP early? Lucky you. Yuki is a cute name for a dog. What book did the name come from?

There are a couple local shops I go to but mostly it's the library. Two years ago I started tracking where my books were coming from. Please come see where I get my books.
