Follow Friday and Blogger Hop

Greetings fellow needle workers and I hope this finds you having a safe and cool weekend in the air conditioning. I don't know about you, but it is so hot outside, I don't go out there unless I have to! Sit a spell and tell me what you are working on. Thanks for stopping in and have a great weekend!

Question of the week:
What do I do when I am not reading?
Hmmm. I read so much, but filling in the blanks...I write alot. Blogging takes up some of my time. So do my puppies and my husband. I review music, so when I am not listening to it, I am usually writing a review about it. When time permits, I try to make my Thursday knitting class, but lately that has been quite the challenge with my full time job demanding more of my time than normal. So, I crochet a bit here and there, watch a sitcom with my husband over dinner and then I am usually back on the computer writing, blogging or reviewing something. Typically, this means I am surrounded by my furry kids, trying to either write a bit on the book, toss some laundry in the machine and run the vacuum all while running plot lines in my head and trying to squeeze as much into my time off as I can. Life is never boring at my house.

Where do you get your books?
Answer: Most of the time I buy my books, both on my Nook and in physical form. I get some from publishers and authors who are interested in having me review them, and I find some at the e-branch of my public library. I love that you can use the e-branch Overdrive system with the iPad and the Nookcolor. It is super cool. I also use Netgalley. For any of you bloggers out there who have not investigated Netgalley, you really need to check it out. It is like an extended library check out system that you can use on your e-reader or iPad.

  2. Hi!
    Hopping by from the Hop! I swear I'm the only person who doesn't have an ereader! If I did, I'd have a ridiculous amount of books hehe.

    Here's My IMM

  4. Hi,

    Enjoyed your answers, just stopping by from the hop.

  5. Two years ago I started tracking where my books were coming from. Please come see where I get my books.

  6. I’m seeing a pattern of book acquisition here. After all, there are just so many places to get books and so many different ways to read them.

    It’s hard to beat the library for price and selection but it’s even harder to beat the convenience of browsing BN or Amazon from a Nook or Kindle, hitting a button and reading the book you picked in about sixty seconds.

    As usual, my answer to this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is all over the map. Hop on over and read my multipart answer –

  7. On the Parajunkee FF: You sound a lot like me, I mean besides the knitting. Although, I really want to learn how to knit. I've heard that it's very relaxing! Your blog is adorable! I'm now following it :) Here's my post:

  8. I like Overdrive too. Haven't used it on my Nook Color yet but was thinking about it for audio books. Have you tried an audio book on the Nook Color?

  9. I write as well. Hi! Just stopping by. Following you from Follow My Book Blog Friday Blog Hop. Would love a visit and a follow back on my blog: Thanks! Nice to meet you!
