Welcome Book Blog Hoppers

Every Friday Jennifer of Crazy For Books hosts The Book Blogger Hop-The Book Blogger Hop is a great chance to meet new to you bloggers, find some new blogs to follow and gain some great readers for your own blog.   Every week about 200 or so bloggers from all over the world participate.    I have found some excellent new blogs this way and gained some wonderful readers.    I will will follow anyone back who follows me as this is the best way to get to know about new to us blogs.

I started my blog a year ago so I could keep track of my reading, connect with others into the reading life all over the world and to learn about new books.    My blog for the last few months has been one third Asian literature, one third classics and one third short stories but I do read contemporary fiction also and even some YA once and a while.    I have various reading projects I am working on also.    My latest one is short stories by Australian writers of the 19th century.    

If you come to my blog via the hop please leave a comment so I can return the visit.    I  always return all follows.    If you are on Twitter and follow me (from my side bar button) I will return the follow

thanks for stopping by-if you have a suggestion for a short story I might like please  leave it in your comment.

I found you via twitter (not the hop) but your blog is perfect! So glad I came across it... I'm a massive fan of Japanese literature and I absolutely adore the authors you write about.

Funnily enough I was getting ready to publish a blog post about Katherine Mansfield and Du Maurier when I saw you were a fan of them.

I'm def going to be coming back here again. Must join this blog hopper party!


p.s. do you mind if I add you to my blogroll?
