Blog Hop & Follow Friday

Hey guys! Happy TGIF!

The Book Blogger hop is hosted by Jennifer at 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 a chance 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!

This weeks question is "How many books are in your TBR pile"? Answer: I don't want to know. Seriously, it stresses me out and makes me feel pressured to read them all then I panic and rush through everything. Suffice to say it's a lot. I bought all new Ikea bookshelves that wrap around one side of the room and they are all full. Nuff said!

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee. ( she is the one who designed my gorgeous header btw!)
Today's featured blogger is: . I actually found her last week from the Follow Friday. Great blog!

  2. Yeah, my to-read pile kind of stresses me out, too, which is why I just go to the library or buy new books... So pathetic... :)

  3. Hi, Karen!

    Just hopping by! I'm already a follower of your blog.

    I agree. Putting them in numbers can really stress you out. At least you have them neatly piled. :D
