Book Blogger Hop #5 and Follow Friday #2

Book Blogger Hop
"If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?"
  
I would choose the Saint Germain Chronicles by Chelsea Quinn Yarbo. I would be the love of Saint Germain's life and he would turn me into a vampire! We would have to live apart, seeking sustenance from others, but we would see each other often as the centuries roll by.

 
Five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.

1) I shipped more than 1000 books when I moved from UK to Australia - but only 2 boxes of clothes!

2) Trying to read on the bus to work makes me feel ill.

3) If the house caught fire, I'd rescue the books first.

4) I spent nearly $900 on a complete 10 volume set of the Complete Works of Robespierre.

5) One of my prize possessions is my copy of The Farthest North of Humaness (Letters of Percy Grainger)

  7. Apologies in advance for my answer this week as it will not immediately resonate with the book blogger population which happens to be 99.5% female.

    My choice is a book series geared towards guys which won’t enthrall the vast majority of my fellow book bloggers (who are almost entirely female) with the extensive discussion of powerful weapons and sexy milspec gear, beautiful women, eye-popping action sequences (with occasionally obscene violence), and the like.

    But there IS something in my answer that just about everyone of the female persuasion can benefit from my decidedly “books for guys” post. Hop on over to http://www.howardsherman.net to find out what it is.

    Happy Hop Friday!

  9. Thanks for hopping by my blog, I'm your newest follower :)

    I literally laughed my @ss off when I read that if your house caught on fire, you would rescue your books first. I would rescue my pets first (6 inside), but each of them would have my favorite books and my makeup strapped to his or her back. Maybe it's time to give the therapist a call, hmmmmm? LOL

    Have a great weekend!

  10. Hopping through. Books are good to move - they make for good company when you don't have friends in a new place.

  13. Hi! Coming through with the hop. I'm your newest follower. I know we already communicated through email, but I thought I'd stop in and follow. I can't read in any moving vehicle. It always makes me sick. :)

    Have a great one!
