Book Blogger Hop ~ Peeking at Views

book-blogger-hop

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.


Do you sneak a peek at the number of views your posts have gotten? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

I don’t really peek at how many views a post got. I do, though, want to know how many views my blog has had each day. Just to see what the trends are and to know what was good, what was apparently not so interesting, and figure out timing better. There are times of the year that are just bad for everyone – like school starting back up and the holidays. At the end of the month when I write my monthly Chit Chat, I will go back and find the views for the entire month. In my monthly, I used to do popular posts (by views) and ones that needed more love. It actually bothered me a lot knowing which ones were unpopular, so I quit doing that.

Do you like to finish one book before starting the next or do you read several at once? (submitted by Cathy @ What Cathy Read Next)

Growing up through middle and high school, I would have two or three books going at a time. Once I graduated, it seems I am now a one-book-at-a-time reader. The only time I double dip is when I am reading something at school with my students, and it is far easier to compartmentalize and separate the books because they are almost always very different.

What author do you not read and why? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

Uh…I don’t have it out for a particular author, but I don’t read sci-fi, war, or fantasy really. I don’t like those genres at all.

Have you ever visited the location of a book you have read? (submitted by La La @ La La in the Library)

I don’t believe I have ever visited a specific location from a book I have read. There was a book I read a couple years ago that was set in Austin, TX. This is the Capitol of Texas and I live only a 30 minute drive and have been in Austin numerous times, but it was a fictionalized book so the specific locations didn’t exist. The same thing with a book set in the Hill Country. I have been up and around throughout the Hill Country, and a friend even got married in the Hill Country. The land prices and property taxes are astronomical and the perfect setting for wedding venues.
