Follow Friday / Book Blogger Hop (1)

After writing my blog award post last time, I realized that I don’t know too many book bloggers. Well, I know a lot of local book bloggers (yay Pinoys!), but for others? I hardly know any. I have a lot of book bloggers on my RSS reader, but none of them are really “friends”, or at least, people I get to interact with, if you know what I mean.

So let’s try this, shall we? :)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and it aims to help book bloggers make friends with other bloggers all over the world. :)

This week’s question for Follow Friday is: What’s my amazing fantastic gorgeous book?

Oh this is kind of hard. Right now the first thing that came to mind is Justina Chen Headley’s North Of Beautiful. It has a gorgeous cover, and an equally beautiful story, too. :) It’s one of my best reads for 2010. :)

Book Blogger Hop

Over at Crazy for Books, Friday means it’s Book Blogger Hop! Like Follow Friday, Book Blogger Hop is a great way to get to know other bloggers, connect and make friends! The question for this week at Book Blogger Hop is: How many books do you have on your ‘to be read shelf’?

The last count? I had 40 actual books on my shelf that I haven’t read yet. I have three additional from today’s Sale haul, and I’m getting more books tomorrow with my friends as we bookstore hop. That’s not counting the ebooks I have in my iPod, which I feel will grow more once my mom arrives with my new toy. It’s a little overwhelming, honestly, but I know some people who have about 100+ books on their TBR. Now that’s a lot. I don’t know how I will find time to read the ones I haven’t read yet and I don’t think I can go on a book buying ban anytime soon because there are so many books coming, and it’s just hard to resist. :P

Which reminds me: I wish our house renovation gets done soon so I can start planning and saving for my new shelf. That should stop me from buying books for a while. I hope. :P

This weekend should be good. I am kind of apprehensive at what I may buy this weekend at our bookstore hopping (must. control!), but I’m also kind of excited. :) Let’s see. Happy Friday everyone! :)
