Follow Friday & Book Blogger Hop & TGIF

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee.  This weeks featured blog is Angela's Anxious Life and the weekly question is:

Q. What do I do when I am not reading?
I write mostly. Or cook. Or hangout out with the hubs and the kid, eat nachos and watch bad reality TV. My hate hate relationship with reality TV has become a love hate relationship.

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books. This weeks question is:

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 wish I could go to the library but I don't like to give stuff back. I usually buy them either on Amazon.com or go to my favorite used bookstore McKay's. Have I told you about the wonderful awesomeness that is McKay's? McKay's is the best place in the whole wide world. It's a literary orgasm, I swear. They have music, movies and games there too but the books....Homer Simpson drooooooool.... Love it! You can spend all day Saturday in there, fill up a push basket with books and still only spend around $20. I'm an aspiring author but I would have no problem if my book ended up in the bargain section of that store. I love it that much. Plus, because of the prices I've been introduced to so many new authors and genres. It was there that I found out about paranormal romance, I didn't know there was a such thing and they had a whole section. Ahem, now that I've finished my non-paid advertisement for McKay's, to answer the question, I buy my books. :)

tgif is a weekly meme hosted by GReads!  This week's question is:

Book Blogger Appreciation: Which book blogs have inspired you 
or made a difference in your blogging experience?
 
Hmmm, good question. Well,
 
All About {n} was the first book blog I came across and I was like wow, this is awesome. I can do this too! Plus I love looking at other peoples bookshelves and she has a whole day set aside to nose through someones books!


Then I found PJ'sView, which I fell in love with instantly not just because its goth and purple but because of all the books and all the tips. You can't go wrong there.



It think I came across Bewitched Bookworm next and found out about collaborating and having more than one reviewer on a blog which I thought was a great idea.


A Cozy Reader inspires me to have cute blog because her blog is just so cute. It is actually cozy.

A Cupcake and a Latte inspires me to eat a cupcake and drink a latte while I read my book. I mean, why didn't I think of that? Seriously, though I really love her blog design too!

There are tons more blogs that I love. In fact, I haven't really come across one I don't like! Book bloggers are great!

Lol. I'm still in the hate hate relationship stage with reality TV. The only one I've ever got into was Amazing Race, and it was for one season only.
