ABOUT THE HOP:  Hosted by Crazy-for-Books

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!  This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!  It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!  So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list below!!

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun!  This is a weekly event!  And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added!  We get over 300 links every week!! 

Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.

This week's question comes from Libraryscatbooks!

How many blogs do you follow?
Well, according to my Google Reader, I follow 109.  That said, I don't read most of them every day, or even every week.  Because my time online is limited, I tend to prioritize my blog reading based on the kinds of reviews posted, or on the frequency of posts.  Mostly I look at my blog roll on my own blog and read whatever is newest from the blogs listed there. If I have time, I go back to older posts in Google Reader, but I often have 1000+ new posts to read there, so I feel a little like Sisyphus pushing that rock up the hill.  Come to think of it, that's how I feel about my bookshelves as well.  Seems like no matter how much I read, they stay just as full :)


  1. Happy Friday. Come see how many blogs I subscribe to.

  2. Just stopping by on the hop. This place is so pretty, I like it here!

  3. Hi, just stopping by from the hop. I love your blog background and layout.

  4. I'm following too many. I have no idea how many, just that it's too many to sensibly keep up with.

  5. No lo sé. I don't know. No idea.
    I visit a blog each day and
    I visit ten blogs every Sunday.
    Je ne sais pas!

    Whatever the number, I'd love to have one more...Yours!

    I'm a new follower!

    Stop by:

  6. Hopping by your blog to say hi! I am a new follower.
    Have a great weekend

  7. Already a follower but stopping by to say hi! I'm pretty sure if I had 1000+ new blog posts to check out I'd just mark them all as read. Having that many to check out would intimidate me so I'd just sweep the problem under the run. I haven't gotten to that point just yet since I spend a stupid amount of time online, but I'm sure it's coming.

  8. Stopping by to say hello! Seems like we follow about the same number of blogs (and I've been following yours). Have a great Friday!

  9. I am hopping by! I almost used this template! I love it... works well for your blog.. didn't so much for mine ( : Hope you have a great day!!

  10. Happy Friday. Coming by to say enjoy the weekend! Nice blog! Like the way it's set up and will take a twirl around.
