Friday Finds(logo linked to host site)

Friday Finds is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading, showcasing the books we have “found” and added to our TBR list this week.  They can be found online, in the library, the bookstore, or another’s site.  They don’t have to be books that we have purchased.

book blogger hop

The Book Blogger Hop is now hosted by Billy of Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week, there is a different bookish question to answer.

 

This weeks question:  When you enter a contest or request a book, how do you keep track of what the books are? or perhaps you don’t keep track and just remember what you entered or requested?

For contests, I don’t generally keep track.  If I win, surprise!  But requests I track.  I have a dashboard notepad in my WordPress that I use to list upcoming tours, reviews, etc. for quick reference.  I also uses a “to do” list plugin to list them on my blog.

BookBeginnings

 (logo linked to host site)

Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted by Gillion of Rose City Creations.  We share the first sentence or so of the book that we are currently reading, share our thoughts and impressions about the book that the sentence inspires.

MartinGameofThrones“W e should start back,” Gared urged as the woods began to grow dark around them.
“The wildlings are dead.”
“Do the dead frighten you?” Ser Waymar Royce asked with just the hint of a smile.

Add to Goodreads

This is from A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin.  This short conversation definitely sets the stage for the tone of not just the novel, but the series, too.  I am late to the GoT craze, brought to it by my lovely husband.  He is obsessed with both the shows and the books.  I am glad he brought them to me!
