Follow Friday! (AND BOOK BLOGGER HOP! WAHOO!)

So it's Friday! That means FOLLOW FRIDAY!! Not only is it Follow Friday, but Book Blogger Hop too! So much excitement for one little day. I can barely contain myself! (I'm quite sorry about all of this. I'm a bit delirious. Too much Harry Potter for one girl.)


Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee each week and is a joint effort between all of us bloggers to get more followers (who we love with all our hearts.) Plus, each week a different question is asked, and I get to answer it! So here goes:

Q. What do you do when you aren't reading?
Me: Ohh, well lots of things. I currently work at a vastly exciting movie theater, so I spend lots of time there right now. But at the end of August I will be heading back to college, which means I will be doing lots of studying and homework, and, of course, some hard partying (HAHAHAHAHAHA.) I also spend time writing reviews for you lovely people and watching WAY too much Pawn Stars on Netflix, along with normal stuff like hanging out with friends, eating, etc.

So that fun is over, on to Book Blogger Hop!

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly par-tay for book bloggers to connect! It's hosted by Crazy for Books and lasts Friday through Monday every week! And we get another exciting question, here goes:

Q. 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?
Me: I really, really love to buy books, despite my normal lack of funds for such frivolity. I buy them at Barnes & Noble mostly, because it's what's around, but I also buy ebooks for my Nook from their website, and, really, books from anywhere I can get them. I also have a wonderful relationship with my librarian. I check out massive piles of books at once, and that's great fun. :) AND, I love the bookswap on Goodreads. It's fantastic for finding books you may be interested in for cheap, just the cost of shipping.


Mmkay! So, I shall be heading to bed, given that it's 3:45 in the morning here, and will talk to you cats when normal people are awake (which obviously does not include me!)

  6. 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

  9. Hopping through. It must be nice to see free movies (which I assume you can) if you work at a movie theater. What have your favs been lately?

  10. New follower stopping in to say hi. Do you get a chance to watch the movies as they play at the theater or do you have to stay up front all the time?

  11. @Alison Can Read: We get two passes for each day we work, and since no one goes to the movies that much it really means just two passes whenever, so yeah! I saw Harry Potter last night, which was excellent, of course. I haven't REALLY loved much recently, but quite enjoyed the new X-Men movie.

    @thefictionalbookshelf: I can't actually go watch movies while I'm working, but I do get the passes, such it's just as good!
