It's finally Friday

Hello hello hello! Ah, Friday's here again. The whole weekend is waiting, waiting for me to fill it with some reading. I just started a new book today, A Good and Happy Child. It's a bit depressing right now, but it's supposed to get interesting! I can tell it's going to get good, though. Let's hope.

This goes without saying, but it's also time for The Book Blogger Hop! This is a weekly event that allows you to network your blog and discover some other book blogs. How could you not participate in this? This week's question:

How many blogs do you follow?
I'm sure it's in the hundreds by now. Well, maybe not that high yet, but I do follow quite a few. And I'm proud to say that, for most, I do comment and visit regularly. The way I see it is like this - why would I bother following a blog if I couldn't picture myself coming back and getting involved? I'd much rather follow a select few and be a quality follower than simply click that button and never come back. That would be such a shame. Anyways...

Are you visiting from the Hop? Don't be shy - feel free to leave a comment with your blog link. I'd love to return the visit!

Hey stopping by from the hop! I know what you mean I try to stay open but I want to follow quality blogs that I know I will enjoy and come back to.

Emidy said...

Alison - Aha! The right place at the right time, I guess. Thanks for stopping by!

Literary Cravings - Thanks for visiting! I totally agree.

Alissa said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm glad you liked it. :]

Also, I've heard positive things about A Good and Happy Child, so I hope you enjoy it! Even if it is a bit depressing.

Oh, and I'm also now a follower.

Just found you from the hop! And I agree about not following blogs I'm not interested in....I don't know how my number's gotten so high, but I think I'm being swayed to clean it up a bit! :) Someday. Anyway, happy Friday!

pussreboots said...

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

Candace said...

I agree about being able to visit and comment. I guess my problem is that I see so many that I love the content and want to make sure I get back to visit so I follow. So it makes it hard to find enough time to comment much on anyone's blog. But I just click through links on twitter a lot and I glance at my dashboard through out the day and click on the ones that interest me. Still don't feel like I get to visit enough.

Well, anyway, I'm already a follower. Just trying to catch up on visiting blogs for this week and wanted to see what's been going on here! Have a great weekend!

Hopping through. I also try to comment when I can but it is hard. I'm definitely making an effort though.

Je ne sais pas!

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

Hopping by via the hop...already a follower.

I have started visiting a few blogs each day and I find that is helping keep my google reader manageable and it also gets me to actually visit different blogs every day!

Happy Friday!

Hi there! Thanks for the stop over at my site...nice to see ya! Since I'm a returning visitor as well, I already know the bookish goodness you have here.. ^_^ Hope you enjoy that current read (and that it gets better...depressing books aren't always that much fun)...and have a great weekend!

Stephany said...

Hopping by through the Hop! I really like the name of your blog. French is always good :)

I actually counted individually the blogs I follow. I'm pretty sure I either missed a blog or counted one twice, haha. But the number I got was 88.

Have a great weekend! :)

I feel like I do a better job reading and commenting at people some days than others.

Amanda said...

Hi Emidy,

Must be Friday...no, actually, it's Saturday morning here in Australia!

I have no idea how many blogs I follow in my reader, just that I don't (and couldn't possibly) have time to read every post, every day.

Brenda said...

Hopping by and wanted to say hi. I am now following your blog and look forward to reading some great posts. Have an awesome weekend!

I'm a first time Friday Blog Hop participant so I hope you are willing to hop over to my blog to have a looksy, too. I am intrigued by your review of the book: The Girl She Used to Be. Would you consider it to be a book for adults or YA? Would it be appropriate for a public school library? I've never even heard of it before but your review makes it sound like a book just up my alley.
