First a little housekeeping note: I'm trying to start up a new feature called, "What's up Tweeps?" For now it will be a monthly feature. Hopefully in the future, I can make it weekly. It won't always be about books. Sometimes it will be whatever nonsense is in my head. My first question is, "Why do you follow book blogs?" Be honest. If it's for the content, say that. If it's for giveaways, say that. I'm aiming to have the post up by next Thursday. I'm extending entries until Wednesday. Since I want it to be apart of a blog post, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Now on to the business at hand, every week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books (http://www.crazy-for-books.com/) hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. Make sure you leave a comment on the blogs you find it helps drive up traffic for my fellow book bloggers. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading move to your next title? When I first started blogging, I would stick it out. I thought I had to keep going. But I usually give books 50-60 pages before I give up. Sometimes more. I'm reading two books right now that I'm not totally feeling, but because I agreed to review them on certain dates I am going to stick it out. If I can't get into an unsolicited book, I will stop reading and move on.
Here are some blogs I came across:
