O.M.G.: What are you waiting for? Go out and buy this book now! Superb: It's wonderful, but you can wait for a coupon. Give it a try: It's good, but I would wait for paperback. Meh: It will be in the library eventually. Naahhhhhhhhh!!!: Do I really need to explain?
Update: It's Monday, What's on the Cover will return on March 28. Instead the latest edition of What's Up Tweeps will be posted on March 21. Happy reading everyone!!
One year Jennifer at Crazy-for-Booksstarted the Book Blogger Hop, so Happy Happy Birthday!! It's great and still going strong. There are so many people out there who love books, and it's great to interact with them.
On to the business at hand, Every week Jennifer hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once? Oh boy! When I started blogging, I told myself no more than two books at a time. With only two books at a time it was easier to distinguish the two plots. But as I've gotten more and more requests for reviews, I've had to change my reading habits. I read 3-4 books at a time and I take notes. Some people might feel that taking notes makes it feel like homework, but that is not the case with me. I think since I started taking notes I have written better reviews. The notes have helped me write more comprehensive reviews. If I had a different job and work schedule, one where I could read on the way to work, I think I could get away with two books at a time. But I drive to work, and reading while driving isn't the safest thing to do!!
Notes: A review of Nickel Plated will be posted on Tuesday. A review of The Tapestry of Love will be posted shortly after. I'm looking for takers for March's edition of What's Up Tweeps?!. Here is the question: With so many blogs out there, do you feel pressure to pick a genre/niche? Ever wonder how you can stand out among the masses? E-mail entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm extending entries until Saturday. Happy reading everyone!
I love, love to read. I accept literary fiction, chick lit, memoirs, mysteries, historical fiction and contemporary YA books for review. If you think your book is for me, I will make an exception for other genres. At this time, I am accepting a limited amount of e-books. If I can't get into your book after 60-70 pages, I will not review it. Books are read in the order they are received. Reviews will be posted within 6-8 weeks upon receiving the book. Reviews of books not yet published will be posted closer to the publication date. You can contact me at email@example.com
Opportunities for guest posts, interviews and giveaways can also be arranged.
