Book Blog Hop Oct 21 to Oct 23

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, Elizabeth Bowen and Virginia Woolf.   I also read a wide variety of short stories and an occasional carefully selected new work.

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

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

“What is your favorite type of candy?”

I like a lot of types of candy-I like Hersey Kisses, Butterfinger Bars, M and Ms, good sour candy etc.   I no longer allow myself to indulge very much but it is fun to think about.

If you drop by leave a comment so I can return the visit-thanks

Hi Mel, just hopping by saying hi. I'm terrible when it comes to chocolate and sweets, so I have to try and limit myself! Have a great weekend.
