Follow Friday #1

This is a great way to get to know your fellow bloggers and get connected! A BIG Thank you to Rachel-Parajunkee who has organized the Follow Friday to give bloggers that chance. To visit more bloggers just click on the Follow Friday Badge above! Visit as many as you can and if any stop by for a visit, repay the favor and say 'Hey' back to them!

This is Parajunkee's Question for This Follow Friday:

Q. Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100factsaboutme, give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.

1) I'm a COVER LOVER-I'm shameless! Sometimes I have to really focus on the content/synopsis and/or previous reviews to help in my decision or I might just buy it because it's pretty to look at.

I need to go to Cover Lover's Anonymous!

2) I've been known to eat only Poptarts when reading (which is a good majority of my time). Preferably Frosted Strawberry but any kind will do. They're easy to handle and I can nibble the edges off before getting to the yummy inside! Poptarts fit in the major food group under Fruit! Don't even try to argue with me, I'm an RN!

BTW: I can nibble the edges perfectly without dropping a crumb all while reading---Betcha didn't know I was that talented, did ya? Oh yeah, I've got it goin' on!

3) Once I start a book that I'm really into nobody get's dinner, conversation or actually noticed, for that matter! I'm pretty much into every book I read :o]

4) My Kindle has 600+ books on it-but in my defense, a lot of those were free, some are samples and I've had a Kindle(s) for almost 3 years :o]Plus I still buy print books. Needless to say, my husband is tired of buying book shelves for major holidays and events.

Does that make me a whole new kind of addict?

5) I have 7 different book lights and I'm always on the look out for more! My favorites so far for Paperback or hardcover-The Wedge Light and for Kindle the Belkin Flex Neck.

Book Light Addiction? Nah...Let us not even go there!

Don't forget to go visit the other great bloggers out there!


  1. 600 books on your kindle! That's amazing! I actually don't own an ebook reader of any sort but just imagining 600 titles to read! Wow!!!

    Here's my 5 bookish things.

  2. I'm a cover-lover too! I am also your newest follower and I'd appreciate it if you hopped on over to my blog to follow me as well.

    Thanks and I used to be a book light collector, but now that I have my awesome NookColor I can read everything with a backlight! I don't have quite the collection you do, but I just got my ereader for my birthday and I have 180 or so, but I'm in the same boat you are with free books and samples. My real book count is probably only 130 maybe. :) Anyway, nice to "meet" you and I'll ttyl! P.S. super-cute header!

  3. I'm an old follower, but it's good to see you doing the blog hop! it really is a great way to meet new bloggers :) 600 books? Omg! your my new hero!

  4. Hey, new follower here! I'm also a book cover lover, and I have somehow mastered eating apples and crackers when reading books without getting them all crumby. Great Hop!

  5. Hopping through. I always preferred the chocolate or brown sugar poptarts. What a treat!

  6. Hi Kristi new follower and fellow blogger/cover buyer, love the blog!!

  7. I just read my 1st e-book last week. (I don't have a kindle, but I put it on my ipod) and I didn't think I was going to like only having so little on a "page" but it was suprisingly not annoying.
    :) XO, Al!
    new follower!

  8. Thanks for following (: Im an old follow, Im impressed with that 600+ on your Kindle! I havent even counted mine yet lol.

  9. I have gained tons of books on my Kindle fast! Just got over 700, but most of mine are free reads or discounted ebook sales too! Thanks for the follow! I'm following back!

  10. I do the same thing buy books just because I think the cover is pretty :).

  13. Ahh, Frosted Strawberry Poptarts are my FAVES!! Thankfully my kids don't like them, so when I buy them, they are all mine! LOL!!

    I wanted to say- 75 miles is a really long commute!! :)

    Thanks for stopping by! I'm now following you! I love your blog!

  14. That's so funny, Christy! I've been known to 'misplace' them!

    I'm an RN-C with a lot of Critical Care experience in a small tourist town and our little hospital is terrible. I worked there for 5 years but I need a challenge so I went to work in the 'City' in a progressive ICU/CCU in a teaching hospital where I ended up as the Nursing Supervisor. I loved it there but then I got sick... long story :o(

    Thanks for stopping by! I loved your site, too. The light blue stripes on the side almost match a duvet cover I have! LOL! But it's all the other things on your blog that I really loved!

  15. LOL! I am the same way with covers! And if the cover isn't pretty, it takes a lot of good reviews to get me to buy it. ;)

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! =)

  16. I love your header/banner! It is SO cute!

    My husband and I are both major readers, and we got tired of buying and putting bookshelves together, too, so we both got Kindles. Life-changer!
    We still buy physical books, but limit them to ones we LOVE, ya know?

    Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog today! =)

  17. Hi, new follower here!
    Brilliant book facts about you! I have so many books on my kindle too: gotta love the freebies!
    Happy weekend!

  18. Thanks for the follow, Kristi! I followed back, of course. You've got such a cute blog :) Sign me up for that meeting of Cover Lover's Anonymous, please! I actually just made a post on my blog about covers and how much I adore them. Sounds like we might get along ;)

  19. I simply LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog! New follower! I am a cover addict as well as a book light lover addict!!! I need to check out the one you mentioned for the Kindle! I have such a deep love affair with my Kindle, lol!
    Have a great weekend!

  20. Who ISN'T a cover addict? Lol. A compulsive book light buyer? That's new to me though!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  21. I'm a cover lover too! I'm always buying books because I think the cover is pretty...

  22. So True!!!

    Yes, I have a thing for book lights! I thought I was the only one but April has a thing for them, too.

    Hope your weekends great, too!

  23. I'm definitely a cover person also. :) I love the cover lovers anonymous. :) Fits well with my site name.

  24. Hey lady. I do covers a lot because I don't read the synopsis. I think covers mean a lot know matter what anyone says!

    I still read more print than on my Nook but doing more these days. At least it is back lit! :-) (and adjustable) Super nice.

    Hope you're doing well! Have a great weekend.

  25. lol Book light addiction? That hilarious!!!

    I like book covers too! It's sad to say, but that's usually what draws me in first!

    P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Happy Blog Hop!
