Blog Hop (8) and Follow Friday (9)

Posted by on November 12, 2010
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:

If you find a book that looks interesting but is a part of a series, do you always start with the first title?

Yes, if I don’t, I feel like I’m missing out on a whole lot of details :D

And…(of course) its Follow Friday


Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee’s View.
This week’s question is:

What’s your usual monthly book budget?

Haha, I don’t buy books at all. I don’t have any money, lol.
I check books out at the library and win some, but the last time
I purchased a book was a looong time ago!

Follow me, and leave a link so I can follow you back!

  1. I wish I could say I didn't purchase any books. My bank account would be so much happier! I have an obsession with buying and owning books — I just have to do it! I'm attempting to build my own library, so hopefully that's where all this money spending will lead!

    Thanks for checking out my blog! Yours is really cute!

  2. Where would we be without a good library service? Poorer and with more need for shelving I expect. I don't buy many new books but I do buy quite a lot at charity shops etc for very little cost plus the money goes to a good cause.

  3. I'm an old follower, just topping by from the hop :)
    How do you not buy books! I try not to, but I can't help it… They're just so pretty.
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Hi there Hafsah! Just hoppin' on by. <3

    Dude, finally someone as poor as me! High-five, Hafsah! xD My book budget is $0! I'm a poor college student, so I only borrow books from the library or read in Barnes and Noble while hogging their air conditioning. :)

    Kristina @ Frazzled Book Nommer. Have a good weekend! <3

  5. I can dive right into the middle of a book series if the series' story
    doesn't run chronologically.

    That is to say, if each novel in a series is a stand-alone story (like Lee
    Child's Reacher novels) then I don't feel the need to start with book one.

    On the other hand, a series of books (like Richard Hatch's Battlestar
    Galactica novels) can't be read out of sequence since each new book builds
    upon the story of the previous entry in the series.

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!
