The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week poses a book-related question. The hop starts on Friday and ends on Thursday. The purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers.
I participate in several reading challenges. I love them, and I was always that kid striving to be the best (academically). I won a free trip to Six Flags, to the LBJ Ranch where I got to shake Lady Bird’s hand, and other stuff for being the top reader in my grade all through elementary. So yes, sign me up!
I have changed which challenges I participate in. There are SO many! Last year and this year well after the year was underway I discovered more challenges that I didn’t know about that I kind of really wanted to do, but this year I decided to limit myself and hone my focus…so that I could actually finish a reading challenge besides Goodreads. You can check out all my challenges over the years in the Challenges! tab up top. I still participate in a monthly and seasonal BINGO game just for fun, but my real focus this year is NetGalley. I’m making a little dent! Sadly, most of them also qualify for Shelf Love.
I tried participating in readathons in the past…but I suck at them. I always seem to have something going on when they crop up. I have wondered, though, how people who die-hard participate and update every HOUR with all kinds of info are able to get anything done. Like, are they locked in a closet without human contact? How are they able to get those posts rolled out EVERY hour? That’s crazy train.
