Follow Friday ME!!!

Hello all... I am the feature blogger this week at Parajunkie's View !  I would've had my follow Friday up sooner but I thought I was going to be the feature on July 24th!  Guess I got pushed up!  Anyways... so for all you new followers.. WELCOME!  And sorrow I didn't have this post up sooner so you could leave comments on my Follow Friday! I hope that by being late posting my follow me friday I didn't miss any followers! 

It's time for the weekly book blogger hops again! A great opportunity to meet new bloggers and say hi to old.

Crazy For Books' Book Blogger Hop
Question this week: 
How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?  

 I always get my books from the library.  Rarely do I buy books.  This is only because I read so many so if I actually bought them from the bookstore I would be BROKE.  Oh but I did recently this year buy a Nook Color so I do have to buy those books.

Question this week: 
What do I do when I am not reading?  Wow I have sooo many interests outside of reading so I guess I will just pick one.  I love love movies.  In fact... just this week I camped out at the theater for the final Harry Potter.  We started there Wednesday night and watched a double feature last night (and actually I am just getting out of bed).  It was so fun... here are some great pictures from the event!

Enjoy... and leave me your link so I can follow you back!!


  1. Hi! Wow you camped out for a week??!! That is pure dedication, I hope the movie is as awesome as you had hoped! #FF

  2. Congratulations for being featured this week! :) I'm a new follower.

    Your pictures are awesome. I love your costumes!

  3. Hallo, new follower :) I love your blog's layout, it's very sophisticated. Also very jealous of the Harry Potter camp-out - we still haven't even been to a showing yet!

    Once Upon A Time

  4. Congrats on being featured! Oh, wait...someone already said that. Grrr. Worth repeating, though, right? I, too, get a lot of books from the library. Then again, my bookshelves (yes, plural) may disagree. (shhh, no judging!) Congrats again!

  5. How fun that you camped out to see the movie! That's dedication. :)

    And -- nice to see you go to your library. Hopefully, they'll be able to get a service for downloadable books for your Nook. Our library does, and it's great!

  6. Great blog and congrats on being featured!

    Wasn't HP great? Laughter, tears, baited breath...oh goodness was it good. Hope you liked it!!

    Good reading ~ Escape by Fiction :)

  7. Wow I loved the pictures!!
    HP was epic!
    I love all potterheads!

  8. Hi, new follower stopping by! Happy Friday and check out my blog hops post on my blog!

  9. I get books from the library a lot too! Anyway, I'm a new follower :)

  10. Hi! I'm now following you! I love Parjunkee's site and the fact that you were featured is totally awesome! Your blog is really cool! I love all the photos and Harry Potter talk, it's amazing how you did that! Here's my post:

  11. Oh wow! I'm the opposite. I tend to always buy my books. The library doesn't usually have the ones I want to read. Plus I love my books! My older sister loves the expensive purses and I love books! At least I get coupons with my obsession!

    You actually camped out?! Never seen that happen around my theaters. I'm usually one of those there an hour or so before the box office opens for epic movies! Still gotta see HP 7 pt 2!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  19. New follower from FF. Also joined your groups on Goodreads that you talked about as they are both my kind of groups! For only blogging for a few months you have quite a following already! Awesome! I loved Harry Potter when I saw it at midnight last night. I didn't get to the theater till 5 pm last night, but still got pretty good seats. I can't wait to go see it again. I hope you'll stop by my blog as well,

  20. Looks like you had a great time camping out for the last Harry Potter movie! We did a Deathly Hallows marathon that started at 9pm leading up to the midnight show!

    I'm looking forward to reading more on your blog & congrats on being the featured blogger.

    Have a great weekend!

  22. New follower! Wow you are dedicated camping out for a movie! Looks like you had fun! I kind of miss going to the library. I used to go all of the time instead of buying books, but I haven't been in awhile. Sounds like a good idea to start going back (and cheaper of course, like you said)

  29. Hi I'm a new follower. Congratulations on the feature.
    Awesome pictures! You look like you had an amazing time.
    It is Saturday and I missed FF, (hope to be in next weeks), so I will answer your questions here.
    1. Most of my books are on my Kindle now. I collect cook books and buy most of those at the used book store - you find so many interesting ones there.
    2. When I am not reading I am doing family thing with my grandson who is on the autism spectrum. I am practicing social skills and how to be a friend with him now. We go on hikes,(we live in Alaska so lots of places to hike),go to the library, go to the beach,ride the Tram up the mountain, watch float planes and just everyday things. Nice to meet you.

  30. Wow, I've never camped out for anything but always wanted to! Looks like you guys had a blast! Super jealous that you got a Nook, I had all but made up my mind to get one only to find massive restrictions on using it in the UK : ( But no matter I will be getting a Kindle as a Birthday present to myself on Thursday, cannot wait!

    Also I live right next door to one library and work 2mins from another so I'm always raiding their shelves, I have BIG love for free books!

    Hmm when I'm not reading? I love a bit of gaming too! Got an Xbox and PS3, Uncharted 2 has to be one the greatest games ever created!

  31. Nice.

    We saw the movie last night. It was fabulous.
