Blog Hop

Book Blogger Hop

What a great idea! I love following readers blogs almost more than I like blogging myself. What a great way to get out there and meet new people who share the same interests as you.

I’m so excited about today’s Hop because it’s been a while since I have be able to participate and I love getting to know new bloggers.

This Week’s Question: How many blogs do you follow?

Can I just say too many?? Probably more after the day is done. In my google reader I have 92 blogs that I follow. I think it’s important to stay relevant as a YA librarian, so reading blogs keeps me updated on what going on in the world. Not all my blogs are book blogs, but for the most part they are. Also, I usually just scan the title and the first few sentences to see if the post is something I’m interested in. I’ll expand and go right to the blog if it’s something I really want to read. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to go in-depth into every blog every day. I do love finding new blogs to follow though, I really enjoy reading reviews.

Great question this week!

Hi Katie! I'm a new follower :) I have too many blogs that I follow, too! I mean TOO MANY. But I can't seem to stop, and as long as I still get to read all of them, then I'm totally fine with it :)

Have a great weekend!

Hopping on over to say hello! I totally agree with your comment about using book blogs to stay on top of things -- I use that, too, and it helps me make sure my teen collection is the best it can be! :)
