Blog Hop and Follow Friday (11)

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by This week's question is: "Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her."

Well, I had to stop reading The Relic Master to reread The Little Prince for a novel study with my students. I absolutely adore this book, so it doesn't bother me too much that I had to stop reading my other book. For anyone that hasn't read The Little Prince, what are you waiting for? Seriously. This is one of the best children's books ever written. Don't be discouraged by the tag "children's books" either, there is deep philosophical material between these pages.

Basically, the tiny prince is traveling through the universe because he is discouraged with his life on his own planet. During his travels he meets many interesting characters that teach him HUGE values about life. The prince is optomistic and open; completely unlike many of the adults that he encounters on his travels. (Personally, my favorite character is the fox.) That's all I can say about the book without giving the plot away. Review will come later for anyone interested.

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by This week's question is: Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her.

I guess I am really lucky in this area. My dad is an avid reader so we discuss books all the time. Although, most of his reading material is way over my head. =) Occasionally I loan him a book that he likes. Needless to say, he's not a YA reader.

Since I'm a teacher, however, I talk about books all the time. I chat with the school librarian about books often, but I talk to my workplace BFF daily. We're always swapping books. Of course, I talk to the kids about books as well. I'm constantly pushing books in their direction. 

It's great to have so many people that I can talk to about books. I think I would explode if I couldn't share all my thoughts (about books) with people.

My dad likes to read too. Definitely not the same books that I do but still. We do listen to a lot of audio books though, on long car rides.

I recently read a graphic adaptation of The Little Prince, which brought the original to mind. You are definitely right about the lessons contained inside. I wish I really had real-life friends (that read a lot - I DO have friends!) to talk to about books; my daughters kind of listen, but it's not the same. :)

I can't wait to read The Relic Master when it comes out next month. You're lucky to have it early! I found you through FTF, actually, not the hop. I loved your interview+review, and looking at all of the book covers on my left, I think we have a lot in common. You have a new follower in me! :)
