Blog Hop (2) and Follow Friday (3)

Today is a very special Friday.
1. Its Follow Friday,
2. Its Book Blogger Hop,
3. Its the last day to enter my contest, and
4. IceyBooks is now one month old!!! WHOOHOO!!! 
Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is a meme sponsored by Jennifer at Crazy For Books.
My answer to this week’s Blog Hop question:
How do you spread the word about your blog?
I comment on other blogs, and follow others on GoodReads and Twitter.
But, Follow Friday and the Blog Hop seem the most successful for me!

And… Its my third Follow Friday


Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee’s View.
Follow me, and leave a link so I can follow you back!
My Answer to this week’s Follow Friday question:
What books have bitten you?

Hmmm, I try to avoid books that’ll spook me, but one that has kind of creeped me out at one point would be The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan, although I can’t remember why!

    Because Forest of Hands and Teeth IS creepy!!! Excellent choice! The novel was very quiet, but in that, “because something is waiting to GET YOU!” sort of way!!! :)

    Thank you for the answer!

    And yeah, I think this hop might be the best networking option out there, lol!

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole
    my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot
    drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to share it with someone!
