Welcome to all Book Blog Hoppers Sept 16 to Sept 19

Welcome to The Reading Life

Follow Me and I will Follow you Back

I have been an on and off participant in The Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer of Crazy for books for a long time.   I have found it to be a great place to discover new to me blogs and meet some great book bloggers.    

My blog and my reading focus on  ever evolving genres of literature but for now I am very into South Asian Short Stories, Japanese fiction, classics, Katherine Mansfield, Flannery O'Connor, Elizabeth Bowen and Virginia Woolf.   I also read a wide variety of short stories and review an occasional carefully selected new work.

My blog is the home of Irish Short Story Week centered around St Patrick's Day.   I am open to book blog events.  

Every week Jennifer poses an interesting question for us-here is the one for this week:

“As a book blogger, how do you introduce yourself in your profile?”

I just state my reading interests

Feature and Follow Friday

I am also and on and off again follower of The Feature and Follow Book Blog Hop.   Here is the question for the week

 It's that pesky magic book fairy again! She has another wish: What imaginary book world would you like to make a reality?

I know lots and lots of people will give this answer but the world of the Harry Potter books (as long as I am not a muggle!)

I've seen the answer before but so what. If it's the world you would pick that no worries :-)
I'm not a Potter fan, though. *blinksinnocently*

I love Harry Potter. I chose it for my answer. Think the world would be a lot of fun. Come visit me over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love Blog.

Hi! New follower.

I chose what has been called "the Russian answer to Harry Potter", so obviously we both have good taste! ;)

Haven't seen too many Harry Potters yet! I did choose that one sorta! I said I wouldn't mind that one, but of course I am dying to go the theme park in Orlando to get a sorta real life experience of it! Great choice!!!

Here's my Friday Hops

Have a GREAT weekend!
