Book Blogger Hop...and then some!


Greetings and salutations!

It's FRIDAY!
Time to celebrate the end of another week and get ready for the next one coming, but first a little R&R time to help you on your way.  TGIF but TGFW too! (that's 'thank goodness for weekends')
In looking over my posts, I noticed I was missing something...some how or another I missed out on the Book Blogger Hops for the entire month of September!  (officially anyway....I still hopped just didn't post)  In an effort to set this right and spread a little more bookish news, let's jump right into it, shall we?



It's that time again!  Time for the BOOK BLOGGER HOP, brought to you by Jennifer over at Crazy-for-Books! This idea was created as another means of finding, sharing, and otherwise connecting those in the blogosphere! How can you participate? Check out the main post on Jennifer's page, add your blog name and link into the MckLinky, and get "hopping" over to the other sites listed to make those connections!

This week's question from the hop....

How many blogs do you follow?

Um...now see that's a tough question.  Follow as in actual number in Google Reader....100+.  Follow as in actually read on a regular basis, it drops back below 100.  I try to make the rounds as frequently as I can but alas, sometimes my visiting ability is limited.  Now if I could only perfect that "make more time" formula, I'd be set!

.........
BUT WAIT...there's more...

Have you heard the news?
There's a new YA book being released from Feiwel and Friends as of August 31st, perhaps you've heard of it....

Halo by Alexandra Adornetto
*Waits for recognition to dawn.....there it is!*
That's right!
Less than two weeks before it's arrival and it's already getting a lot of BUZZ in the reading community...and a lot of views as well!  Love book trailers?  This one is suppose to be really great.  How about Q & A sessions with the author?  Catch a glimpse here!  Thanks to Ksenia over at Feiwel and Friends, I am more than happy to share with you some more exciting news about this book.  The author, Alexandra Adornetto, is embarking on a tour to promote this new title starting this September!  So far, dates have been confirmed for several different locations in the US and even one in Canada.  Here's a glimpse of a few places she'll be stopping at along the way...
