TGIF, Blog Hop, FF and weekly round up(all in one post)

Posted 1 July, 2011 by Danny in Uncategorized / 27 Comments

Yay for Fridays!!! The week’s almost over and it’s time for a whole love of Blog Love and Networking!

Let’s start with Jen’s Blog Hop.

Every week she features a blogger and a question. This week’s question is from Sue at Cookie’s Book Club:

What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?

Great question, Sue!! For me, it’s about the story. I need to be intrigued, I need to be pulled into that world, I need to like the characters enough to want to know what happens next. If I don’t get that….meh.

Don’t forget to check out Jenn’s answer, she does her first vlog!!!

Parajunkee also runs a Follow Friday meme that we love.

This week’s question is from Erika at Let’s Talk About Books:

ACK! Your favorite book/movie character (example Hermione Granger played by the Emma chick) just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you include visual stimulation.

Oh, oh, oh! I so would freak out if I met Buffy the Vampire Slayer!!

I just so FANGIRL adore that character (and the chick that played her is super sweet too!).

Finally, we’d love to take the opportunity to welcome all the new faces and the old ones too! *waves* Glad you are here and we hope you like it here at the Bewitched Bookworms.

To get an impression about us, this was what we were up to at the Bookworms last week:

And, if you like audiobooks: hop on over to our Audiobook Challenge for 2011! We announced our June winner/prize for July today! It’s great fun and a great way to enjoy books even when you can’t have one in your hands. Check it out!!

Now go and get lost…in a book!

Obsessive Reader by Night – Scientist at Day!
You can also find me on goodreads. I’d love to get to know you so, don’t be shy and say Hello!

  1. For the books that I'm stashing in rooms, I read in short bursts. To keep reading them I must be able to remember where I am even if I've only read a couple pages or haven't been able to read in days. Come see how I decide what to keep reading and what to stop.

    I don't know why I keep reading a book. It's not the story. It's not the characters. I really don't know!

    I'm hopping by to tell you that I've got a wonderful giveaway going on at my blog, Readerbuzz. It's international! During the Readerbuzz July Giveaway I'll be giving away a $25 Amazon gift card! I'd love to have you stop in and throw your name in the hat to win!

  3. I finally just started watching Buffy not too long ago and I am hooked- thank you Netflix!

    I'm also hopping to invite loads of people to the 2011 Declare Your Independence Indie Author Giveaway Carnival over at my blog- indie authors are featured every day in July and there are giveaways going live almost everyday. Today's is for a $25 Amazon gift card!
    My recent post Why Read Indie Books? + $25 Amazon GC GIVEAWAY!

  4. These book blogger hop questions just get better and better. This one looks easy but I think it’s a trick question. We all know it’s the same answer – the writing – but we all have different perspectives of what good writing is.

    Hop on over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and read my three-prong answer as I explain why I’ll decide to pick up a book or put it down in under sixty seconds.

    Happy July 4th Weekend!
