This is the first time I have taken part in the Book Blogger Hop hosted every Friday by Jennifer @ Crazy For Books – why not join in and hop from one blog to another, find new blogs to read, talk to new people and see some great reviews. To join in all you need to do is sign up on Mr Linky at Jennifer’s blog and people will be able to find your blog.
Jennifer asked: Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?
My answer: I started blogging under the name *SnakeBite* I think around 2005 and was using blogger, back then I wasn’t really too fussed about the name of my blog as it didn’t mean much apart from a place for others to stop by. Now it seems to have evolved into one of the most important things so people can remember where you are at.
I now go by the name Young 1 because although I am hitting a quarter century I am still young and believe I have a lot to learn. The actual address Blog a book came about after another name change from Only Young Once. So as you can see I have been around the bushes and over some hedges to get to where I am at the moment and I still have abysmal ratings – what to do, what to do? Well this is not the reason I joined Blogger Hop but hopefully some may drop by and think the rantings of a 20 something are slightly interesting if not irritating enough to argue their point in a friendly manner.
We shall see.
As for the books I read – well anything and everything really, if it catches my eye or I have read a review somewhere and there is always the time when I come across a great bargain at a book market or charity shop.
This weekend I have in front of me:
Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella – yes i am still reading it but in my defence there has been a ball breaker of an assignment to get through, not with words but just plain boredom.
The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga – cannot wait to get stuck into this read been on my list for a LONG while
The Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes – again cannot wait to get into this one, advertised nicely and was bought as a present by the man in my life.
Well have a nice day people I will be back with updates of how far I get! Should be a great weekend.
The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice – another that I have never taken part in but hey why not it’s fun and she has a cool blog.
So you grab absolutely any book you can get your hands on, flip to page 56, and what is the sentence that grabs you the most?
The sentence: ‘No dirty words! Chips only with meal!’ she taps a menu with her biro. ‘Says so here. You want chips, you order meal. For goodness sake. I wasn’t born tomorrow.’
I have yet to read this book along with several other of Tony Parsons books they are waiting in the pipeline! Back to shopaholic or I shall never finish!
Hope your days are going well . . .
