Book Blogger Hop - 1/30 - 2/5

 Question of the Week:

Do you ever get comments from authors when you have posted or tweeted your review?
My Answer:

Oh yes.  I love it when I hear from the author either in a comment, in a tweet, or in an e-mail.

Authors appreciate what we have to say, and they want us to know it.

I have gotten comments from a number of authors.

What about you?  Have authors been in touch?

The 11 Types Of People You Meet In Book Club - Courtesy of Bustle.com


When I found this article on Bette Lee Crosby's Site, I just had to share.

What type are you?  Find out here.

I think I qualify as The Quiet Kind.  I read every book but don't have much to say.  I just listen.  :)

Winter, Winter, Winter

Snow has arrived in Pittsburgh, but nothing compared to what New York and other Northeastern states are going to get.

Stay safe if you are affected.

Here are two shots.  One out of my front door and one out of the back door.  I love seeing the bushes and trees covered.

This may cool off anyone who is having hot temperatures.  :)


Are you getting any snow?

********************

The books below are not necessarily in the order I have planned to read them.  

I normally read in order of publication or tour date.

And....these are not for reading in the upcoming week.  They are books into and including all of 2014.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.  A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel lists. 

     

How was your reading week?
