Book Hop & Follow Friday (5)

Happy Friday! This week I'm participating in a few memes. Book Blogger Hop is hosted over at Crazy for Books. Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View.


Book Blogger Hop

What are you reading now, and why are you reading it? 


I'm currently reading Lady Chatterley's Lover by D. H. Lawrence. This is my first selection for the Wordsworth Classics Challenge. I've been totally slacking on getting to this one. :-P But, I'm currently 44 pages in, and I'm loving it.


What is the book you are currently "pushing"? 

Hmm...I'm really not much of a "pushy" person. I tend to just mention if a book was really, really good. I did just make my mum read the Hunger Games trilogy, though. But, otherwise, I'd have to say I really push the Mortal Instruments series, or Harry Potter. Working in a library, you really just have to be an advocate for books in general. Every patron's taste is different, and you have to roll with it when suggesting items, even if you don't like their favored genre.

  1. Good luck with the challenge... at this rate, I don't think I'll get myself to read any classics! Ugh.

  5. @Cialina: I'm having a hard time keeping myself on schedule with it. There are so many other things I want to read, and the classics have always been a little slow for me.

    @Sonette: Thanks for stopping by! :D

    @Kyanara: You should definitely try out The Hunger Games! It's such an amazing series.

    @Aimee: Thank you for stopping by! ;D

  6. Happy Friday! I don't usually push people either, but I would definitely strongly recommend both the Mortal Instruments and The Hunger Games series, both should be read again and again! Hope you have a good weekend:)

  7. I don't push books much (well, except on children at my school library!).

    I'm bloghopping today, seeing what people are currently reading, befriending new blogs. I'm reading a children's book from New Zealand called Under the Mountain that is on the 1001 Children's Books You Must Read list. Excellent.

    And I am your newest follower! Hope you will stop by my blog and say hello!

  11. Good answer! The answer on my book blog is a little embarassing; it’s a book that’s been sitting on my TBR pile for a year.

    To my shame, I only opened the book because I remember it contained an Amazon gift card.

    Hop on over!

  14. Hopping through. I am definitely a Harry Potter pusher. I just realized last night that one of my good friends has never read the books or seen the movies. That is just so hard to believe.

  15. I'm a total bookpusher. You should see me at my library. I'll tell people who can't decide which book to take, "Hey! Why not check them BOTH out! It's free, and if you don't like it, you can always return it early."

    @Alison: omg, I'd die if one of my friends hadn't read Harry Potter, lol!

    @Madigan: I wish my patrons would listen to book pushing! I can recommend a lot of things for teens and kids, but our adults are so set in their ways they just won't listen. :p

    @Lu: Have a good weekend! Thanks for stopping by! ;D
