Friday Blog Hop...Share the Blog Love

The Friday Blog Hop this week asks us to highlight blogs that we enjoy and why..in other words..share the love.
Book Blogger Hop
So here are a few blogs that I enjoy:

1.  A Book a Week...Becky over at A Book A Week writes crisp, concise book reviews without a bunch of fluff and distracting other tags.  I can read her reviews without having to scroll past long sections of text that don't help me decide to/not to read the book.  Simplicity reigns and I love it.

2.The Elliott Review... Jessi over at Elliott Review is always so kind and helpful, always answering questions I pose and encouraging me as a blogger and as a teacher-librarian (kindred spirits)

3. Roof Beam Reader...Adam over at Roof Beam Reader is a blog I enjoy because Adam brings the male voice to books and book reviews...he says he is in the 5% minority.  He always give thoughtful comments.  I appreciate that.  Plus Adam is a fellow teacher.  Yeah!


  1. Hopping on by! You have a very cute blog!
    Happy Reading

  2. Happy HOP!! Hope you have a fun weekend filled with reading :)

    To answer your question. I read a lot while he is taking his nap. And a little after he goes to bed. He is 13 months now, so I guess he isn't an infant any more and he lets me get stuff accomplished through out the day while he plays.

  16. Hopping by to say hello. I'll be following - I like what I've seen here so far :)

  17. So, I'm way behind lately but I did want to stop in and say THANKS for mentioning my blog. That was awesome. :)

    I see you've got some banned books/censorship postings happening for the ALA's BBW, which is great. It's a huge issue with me, so I'm always stoked. I'm doing two giveaways this week in "celebration." haha

    Thanks again!
