Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop 7.15.2011
Thursday July 14, 2011 at 11:12 pm |

Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. First you leave your name here and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them hi in their comments. You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win.

This week’s feature is Angela @ Angela’s Anxious Life. So be sure to visit her and follow!


Q. What do you when you are not reading?


Hmm, when I’m not reading I’m usually surfing the web, designing and building websites, or hanging out with my family and friends.  I play my siblings in Words With Friends, and play my Mom in Gin Rummy.  I leave town to hang with friends and shop.  I also spend a lot of time watching television and movies.  Entertainment is my life. I also play on the Wii every once in a while.  Also, when I’m not reading, I’m at the bookstore or online looking for books to read.  LOL…hard to break the reading bug.   


The Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! Hosted by Crazy-For-Books, 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!!


How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?

I mainly get my books by buying them.  Borders and B&N is where I get many of my books.  I also get one here and there from Wal-Mart and Target.  Sometimes I win them from places like goodreads or fellow book bloggers.  But they are mainly bought.  I ask for Bookstore gift certificates every year fro Christmas and my B-day, so I’m usually able to rack up with that.  And I’m apart of sites that let me accumulate points I can cash in for free Gift Cards to Amazon and B&N.  So I get a lot of free books from that too.

  4. Happy Friday Jade!
    I had come by and see what you were up to!
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Ann says:

    I stopped by from the blog hop

  6. Wow you are a busy bee! It sounds fun though. I just discovered words with friends so I play with random opponents. I also play the wii when I am in my own place. I am addicted to Michael Jackson on the wii and I’m really good. I used to play like 2 hours a day or when I had a bad day or something.

  7. Jade Jade says:

    @ RRR, Thanks hon. Thats my fave part of the site too.

    @ Richard, I think being a bookworm is addicting

    @ Nikki, thanks!

    @ Brenda, hey there blog buddy! I’ll be stopping by your spot in a few.

    @ Ann, thanks for stopping by!

  8. I’m seeing a pattern of book acquisition here. After all, there are just so many places to get books and so many different ways to read them.

    It’s hard to beat the library for price and selection but it’s even harder to beat the convenience of browsing BN or Amazon from a Nook or Kindle, hitting a button and reading the book you picked in about sixty seconds.

    As usual, my answer to this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is all over the map. Hop on over and read my multipart answer – http://www.howardsherman.net

    @ Alexis, not really, I just make myself sound like I am! Oh and my family can’t see me on that MJ game. I always win! But you put in way more time than me so I’m sure you could kick my butt playing that.

    @ Rose, thank you dahling, you are too kind! It was my pleasure, I’ll be seeing you around the blogosphere!

  11. I like your banner the design is pretty. I assume you did it since you said you design. Love the color purple too! New follower!

  13. Trish says:

    hi! New follower here. i always ask for giftcards for books (or specific books) for holidays and bday. sometimes I’m too cheap to spend my own money on books. I LOVE words with friends. I almost always lose but it’s still fun! happy friday!

  15. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the best wishes for my wedding. I hope you have a fun weekend.

  16. Jade Jade says:

    @ Trish, GC are always helpful. And Words With Friends is pretty addictive. I have like 8 games going at once with the sibs and freinds. I wish my Dad was still alive because he would love it. He was a scrabble guru.

    @ JuJu Hey there! Hope you got everything all moved.

    @ Nicki, Thanks for stopping by!

  17. Rebecca says:

    Oh, designing and building websites sounds real fun! I haven’t done anything advanced at all, but I did take a beginners course once and love playing around with and building up WP sites! LOL. I’m thinking about getting one of those programs, which I have no idea what they’re called, but I know we used them in our course! Lol.

    Anyhow! Thanks for stopping by and I’m sorry for hopping back so late! Hope you had an awesome weekend, Jade. 🙂
