Follow Friday and the Book Blogger Hop

It's a beautiful sunny day and it's a Friday, so shaping up to be a good day. After a break last week while I was visiting family I'm back to the meme fun. First up Follow Friday hosted by Parajunkee.com -
Q. Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100factsaboutme, give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.
Ooh, this is hard, can't think of much that's particularly interesting or silly but I'll have a go!

1) The only books I can remember starting but not finishing are Don Quixote by Cervantes and Ulysses by James Joyce.

2) I am completely besotted with my kindle, it goes everywhere with me and having raved about it I know a few other people who have bought one.

3) My influence must be rubbing off on my daughter, at 17 mths old her 4th word was Book.

4) Although I never really read them I have loads of beautiful coffee table books on natural history and the marine environment, I love the gorgeous pictures.

5) I have one book in my collection I haven't read but love to look at and smell - a rather delicate leatherbound version of The Pickwick Papers from the early 1900s. If modern mass produced paperbacks were as wonderful I might have had a hard time switching to the kindle.

And from Jennifer at Crazy-for-books.com

"If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?"
Now this one is easy, I don't think I'll be alone but I wish I had received a letter from Hogwarts as a kid so it's got to be Harry Potter!


Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great weekend.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm a little sick of being a student, so I think I would like to be the teacher, for once. :P I hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!

Harry Potter is a pretty popular answer this week! For me, there is just way too many good series out there to just pick one, but Harry Potter would definitely be included.

I'm a new follower now and I'm looking forward to reading your posts!

Harry Potter is a pretty popular choice and I can see why. Personally, I'm afraid of Voldemort. Thanks for stopping by my hop.

I chose three different ones...stop by my blog if you like to see my choices.

Harry Potter isn't one of them, though. I really haven't read any Harry Potter books.

Have a fun hop.
