Friday Fun September 10, 2010

Well, I sort of took a week off, not just from this blog, but from reading as well.  I was busy preparing our lessons for our homeschooling journey this year.  You can find details of this week's success at my homeschool blog, just click on the button to the left.
I will also be sharing book reviews of the books I read to the girls.  These will be on my homescool blog and linked up each week to What My Child Is Reading over at Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns.
However, this is my book blog and it is Friday, so it is now time to link up to Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books
Book Blogger Hop


1.  Enter your book blog link in the Linky List at Crazy-For-Books
In your link, please state the main genre that you review:  eclectic, contemp. fiction, ya, paranormal, mystery, non-fiction, etc.  Please do not list every genre you review - if you are review a variety, please put eclectic!  The Hop gets jumbled up if the title is too long, so please limit to one genre.  I will be limiting the number of characters in the title to ensure the Hop doesn't look messy!  Thank you!
Example:  Crazy-for-Books (literary fiction)
NOTE:   You no longer have to enter the length of time you've been blogging, but do let us know if this is your first time hopping with us!

2. Post about the Hop on your blog.  Spread the word about the book party!  The more the merrier!  In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!).  If you have a suggestion for a future HOP question, click here to fill out the form!  Thanks!

This week's question/topic comes from: 
Anne @ My Head Is Full of Books

Post a link to a favorite post or book review that you have written in the past three months.

3.  Visit other blogs in the Linky List!  Make new friends!  Follow new book bloggers!  Talk about books!  Rave about authors!  Take the time to make a quality visit!  Check out other posts and content, make a new friend!  Don't randomly follow someone if you never intend on actually following them!  No spamming please!  (Please do not leave your link and not visit other blogs - it's just not cool and not in the spirit of the Hop!)

And just as an FYI - this event is not something you should feel that you have to participate in every week.  If you want to join in and link up once a month, GREAT!  It's up to you how often you participate!

So, have fun HOPPING and enjoy your BOOK PARTY weekend!!!

Here are two links in response to this week's topic.  One is my favorite Christian book review, the other is my favorite young adult book review.

Day of Reckoning was my favorite book in the Baxter Series by Kathy Herman.
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner was a eagerly awaited book in our house.  It is written by Stephanie Meyer, author of the Twilight series.

Now, onto Friday 56 hosted by Tonya, over at Storytime With Tonya and Friends.

Optional F56 Logos

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blogor (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Time to go find a book.
The book closest to me was the book we are going to be using for our math curriculum.  Count on Math: activities for small hands and lively minds by Pam Schiller and Lynne Peterson. 
"Just as children need vocabulary to describe attributes, they also need vocabulary to describe position, direction and relationships.  Children will use this vocabulary and the corresponding conceptual awareness when they classify and order materials."


  1. I think by it's very nature Hunger Games will have violence. As for it being graphic - don't know, maybe someone who has read it can say?

  2. My favorite Christian books/series: The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis! I didn't enjoy The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner so much, sadly. You can see my review at my blog. I'm a new follower. Enjoy your weekend!
