Welcome to all Book Blog Hoppers

Welcome to all 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 follow about 500 book blogs  and am always happy to find more.   If you follow me I will follow you.

Here is Jennifer's question for this week:
"When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?"

I hate to do it but I normally will move on to the next title.   Life is too short to read bad 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 in 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 and I also just read  five stories by African writers in competition for the Caine Prize.    I am very into Katherine Mansfield and Virginia Woolf.  

If you visit me please leave  a comment so I can return the visit-

I will follow all who follow me-if I don't let me know please either in Google Friend connect or Twitter.

Hi Mel. Happy weekend! Iced green tea is something I've never had. I bet it's very refreshing.

I like green tea but I've never tried it ice.

Happy weekend. I don't drink while reading or blogging.
