|gearing up to hop .... any moment now....|
This week's question for the Hop is:
In honor of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, let's take this time to honor our favorite book bloggers and why we love them!
I follow a number of other book blogs, so I thought I'd just give a shout-out to two of them: A Thousand Books with Quotes, and Musings of a BookShop Girl.
A Thousand Books with Quotes definitely does the whole blogging about books thing a little differently. There's always a summary of the book, and then some quotes from it. I really like this because it gives me not only an idea of the kind of writing in the book, but it's also a completely different way to look at a book. If I'd read a particular book, I'm always interested to see if there's a quote I remember -- and if I've never heard of the book, it's great exposure to it!
In her blog, Musings of a Bookshop Girl, Ellie writes book reviews, but also gives us little slices of her life. I always get a kick out of reading about the tales of the bookshop, probably because I work in a public library and deal with the public on a constant basis. I like the way Ellie writes, whether about books or her life in general. I also admit a bit of fascination because she's British; I've been to Britain twice, and would love to go back (and reading her blog makes me think fondly on my trips).
Looking forward to seeing what other book bloggers have to say on this Hop this week!
