Follow My Book Blog Friday Blog Hop 3/25/11






Question of the Week: Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100factsaboutme, give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.


Now, 5 book related facts about me:

1.  You know you're a bookish nerd when you'd rather spend recess in the library than outside playing.  That was me!

2.  By grade four I was reading adult level books.  My favourite at the time was Phantom Roan.  My teacher tried reading it to the class, at my request, for reading time but I was the only one who understood and liked it.  So she went to a story about cyclops instead!

3.  I read every Marguerite Henry horse book in elementary school! Loved them!!

4.  My favourite book from childhood is Black Beauty by Anna Sewell.  I still have the copy my grandparents bought me.

5.  I feel euphoric after a visit to a bookstore or library!

What would you like to share about yourself? 

Enjoy your hop everyone and be sure to leave a link so I can come visit yours!!  Follow me, let me know, and I'll follow you back.

  2. Wow! There's someone else who spent recess (we call it 'playtime' in the UK) in the library instead of outside. One of my happiest times at school was being made Library Monitor :)

  6. I love visiting book stores and the library as well. Well, I think it depends on the library.

  7. Hopping through. I used to spend my lunchtime in the library - not because I was friendless, but because I had fun in the library.
