Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop (4)

Another Friday has come and that means it's time for Follow Friday and the Book Blogger Hop!

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host, and any one else you want to follow on the list
  2. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  3. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments
  4. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can
  5. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the follower

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers  to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on!  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 that they may not know existed! 

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun!  This is a weekly event!

RULES:  (in hopes of simplifying things for everyone!)

1.  Enter your book blog link in the Linky List at Crazy for Books (be sure to include what genres you review!).  If you post about the Hop on your blog, please link directly to your Hop post (don't forget to answer this week's question - see below!).

2.  Visit other blogs in the Linky List!  Make new friends!  Follow new book bloggers!  Talk about books!  Rave about authors!  (Please do not leave your link and not visit other blogs - it's just not cool and not in the spirit of the Hop!)

3.  Post about the Hop on  your blog!  Spread the word about the book party!  The more the merrier!

4. In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!):  Do you listen to music when you read? If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?

I usually read in silence, but every once in a while I need a soundtrack to go along with whatever I'm reading. The tunes all depend on what the book is, but I'm a big theater geek, so most of the songs are from Broadway shows or opera.

Broadway songs would distract me to no end while reading ... I'd want to sing along! I have a new found respect for you. ;)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Here on the hop, and I'm now a follower! :)

Listening to suitable songs helps me "feel" the book more, if you get what I mean. So when I can, I try to do that. I usually don't have the luxury, though :( And I love Broadway, too! Not so much as background music to my books, but in general. I can't help but sing along when I hear my favorite tracks from musicals like Rent, Wicked, and so, so many others :))

Have a great weekend!

Hopping by - I don't listen to music often while reading, mainly at the gym to tune out others (and motivate me to keep moving). I love Broadway songs, but like Missy - I would want to sing - I save those for when I'm sewing :)

Found you through follow friday. That's amazing you can listen to broadway music while reading. I'd be singing and dancing along with it that I wouldn't be able to read!

I'm a new follower btw :)

Jennifer said...

Hopping through my day! Music tends to remind me of books I've read, but I don't hear music when I read, so I don't listen to it. :)
