Blog Hop and Follow Friday

Blog Hop and Follow (My Book Blog) Friday

Fridays are good days to make new friends. Jenn at Crazy-for-Books and Parajunkee at Parajunkee’s View both are offering opportunities to put your blog out there for others to see and to see other blogs too.

Check this post for the description and rules of Jenn’s blog hop. And check this post for the rules of Parajunkee’s Follow (My Book Blog) Friday.

Jenn also has a question of the week: Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!

A couple of my favorite authors are Lois McMaster Bujold, Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, and Patricia C. Wrede. I like all of them because they write character-driven speculative fiction stories. I have read and re-read the books by these people because their characters are so real and so dear to me.

While you are here, I have two current contests. You can win a $60 gift certificate from CSN Stores if you live in the US or Canada. I am also giving a complete set of Patricia C. Wrede's Enchanted Forest Chronicles to anyone within shipping range of The Book Depository. Check out the individual posts for the entry forms. Both contests end on July 23. The Enchanted Forest Chronicles is only open to my followers. Anyone can enter the gift certificate giveaway.

Check out these sites and join in the fun.


  1. Just stopping by via the hop to say hello! I love meeting fellow book bloggers :) Nice to meet you.

    And the plot thickens...

  2. Hopping through. I'm a follower. Surprisingly, the only author of those I know is Patricia Wrede and I haven't even read anything by here. Shame on me.

  5. I've already been here a bunch of times (I LOVE teacher/librarian blogs!) but I just wanted to Hop through and see who your favorites authors are! I'm a little embarrassed to say that I don't recognize any of them... at the same time, I kind of love it because now I have a bunch of new authors to check out. Happy Friday!

  6. Found you from blog hop! Hop on over to my blog and return the follow!

  7. Hi! I'm visiting because of the blog hop. Great place!
