Blog Hopping Today!!!

I am super busy over the next week...and I will keep you posted on all I do and see.  I am sitting in the airport waiting on my flight to Albequerque for the Young Adult Library Services Assoc. Symposium.  I am excited to check out what books will be coming out in the near future and talking with the authors who will be attending.

Next week is all about politics....
Next Tuesday, I will be meeting Rick Perry and have his books signed.  He will be at Minute Maid Park to discuss and sign his books
Fed Up!: Our Fight to Save America from Washington

Next Wednesday, I will be going to listen to Condoleezza Rice and have her book signed. 
Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family
If you haven't already figured it out, I love to meet authors and I love geting autographed books by the authors I meet.  I have had to start putting a limit on my visits as well as put in a budget!  My library is growing far faster than my paycheck!!  LOL

I will going in for a sleep study on Saturday night.  That will most likely be the most excitement I have next weekend! 

And finally...
Welcome Blog Hoppers!!

This is my third week on the blog hop and I have seen so many amazing blogs.  I hope you like what you see and will become a follower.

I do have one giveaway going on right now that will end on 11/8.  It is open to anyone that lives in the US or Canada.

Check out the entry from yesterday for the form.

Book Blogger Hop

"What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"

I am new to blogging and every time I see a new follower, I get all excited.  I have not seen the numbers go down yet, so I don't think I have lost anyone yet.  However, I do understand if someone does find that they do not find my blog interesting and chooses to stop following.  There could be any number of reasons why someone leaves and I have learned not to take that kind of thing personally.

I have stopped following friends on FB, but I have never stopped following a blog.  I try to only join blogs that interest me so that I don't have to stop following for whatever reason.


  1. I have not stopped following a blog yet either, but I am really bad about unfollowing on facebook. I am always cleaning up the 'friends list' there. :)

  2. Glad to have found you via the Hop and FF. I'm your newest Follower!

    I rarely stop following blogs, but I have un-friended people of FB, usually because I'm tired of negative comments/constant lewd comments/etc. People can really be annoying on there sometimes!

  3. Who are your favorite authors??

    My favorite authors are:
    Maeve Binchy
    J.K. Rowling
    Stephenie Meyer
    Charlaine Harris

  4. Hi! Hopping by for FF! Great blog, I'm following you!

  6. Hi, dropping by on FF and the hop. Follower. I haven't stopped following a blog yet. But Have lost a couple followers recently. Oh well, to each his/her own.

  7. Hi there! New follower here.
    Owning a bookstore is a total dream of mine!


  8. I'm stopping in via the Hop. I'm happy to have discovered your blog. We are near neighbors. I live just down the highway (literally!) in Alvin.

    I hope you will stop by and say hello at my blog. Perhaps we will run across each other at a book signing. I love to go to these. There's one tomorrow in Manvel.

    I'm a new follower!
