Happy Blog Hop Friday!

Once again it's stalking *ahem*, I mean following time.

If you want to join the follow on fun you need to visit;

Parajunkee hosts the ever popular Follow My Book Blog Friday. Her featured blogger this week is Jackie at Insane Hussein
The question of the week is What us your usual monthly book budget??

HA! That's too funny. I have no budget, although at the moment I am on a book buying ban (self imposed) due to my TBR pile being so high (that is in the physical sense, I fear it may avalanche on one of the children :P)
I normally buy a book a week. Nothing too exxy mostly only things that are under $15 unless it's a new release that I absolutely can't live without.

Book Blogger Hop

Crazy For Books hosts the one and only weekend long book blog hop. The question of the week over that way is If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title?

Absolutely yes! There is nothing worse than walking in mid conversation and I feel the same way about books. I would rather be there from the beginning.

Happy blog hop bloggers!

I love the header of your blog :) new follower!

I completely agree, I can't read a series out of order. Even in order, I sometimes forget things =/

Stopping in from the hop. I also can't read a series out of order!

I've never had a book budget...sometimes I buy a lot of books, sometimes not many at all. I have a huge TBR pile atm and I really should hold off buying some until I get that down to manageable numbers but....I find a new book every week that I must have!

Have a great weekend :)

Hopping through and now following you! My TBR pile is out of control. I, like you, had to put a ban on purchasing books.

Hopped in to say hi and am now a follower. My TBR shelf is way out of control too, but I keep on buying. Can't wait for Christmas break so I can get more reading done. Have a great weekend!

Julie Anne Lindsey said...

Hopping by! I'm a new follower and I love love this blog. Excellent.

Sarah said...

stopping by from Follow Friday :)

I always start with the first in the series too.. I don't understand why someone wouldn't. :)

I understand about the book buying ban.. we certainty wouldn't want any flattened children!

Ello Chaz, new follower Danna here:) Love the space theme! I used to buy a book a week, but with the recession...rawr, stupid economy:P Happy Friday!

Hey! I'm an old follower just stopping by on the hop to wish you a great weekend!

My monthly budget is anything under $100. Good for you for imposing a book buying ban to chip away at your TBR pile. It's so hard to resist new releases sometimes!

Hiya Chaz!
New follower hopping along for the Friday Follow, and I've got to say I really like the design here, especially the sidebar configuration :-)

I've been on a tight budget since last year's total shocked me ;-)


Christin said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I try and limit myself to a book a week too - I'm trying to not think about the avalanche that may happen here!

Have a great weekend!

Seems like no one is really fond of reading out of order.

I don't no the meaning of the words book budget. I tried to impose one on myself a while ago, I failed miserably.

Erika said...

Hi there! Stopping by on the hop. I'm really digging your header- it's so gorgeous!

I totally understand what you said about reading series books in order. I don't see the point in starting a series with the book that isn't the first- that's what the numbers are for!

Have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I laugh when people ask me about my book budget. Back when I had money, I could spend a lot on even used books. Now that I write about books constantly, I'm really blessed to not have to buy many myself. I would love to be able to sometimes, though.

Hi Thanks for stopping by earlier.
My hubby might be a bit more accomnodating if he has his own hobby lol. I will have to suggest he get one.
My kids aren't allowed near my bookcase without a crash helmet on :)

Christine said...

Hi Chazz!

yay for no budget on books! :) I put myself on a book diet not too long ago as well but I failed miserably! :)
There are worse things to spend money on than books!

Have a wonderful weekend!
