Blog Hop and Follow Friday (20)

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted at Crazy for Books. This week's question asks us "How many books are in your TBR pile?

I really thought I had a lot of books waiting to be read, but then I saw that some people have over 1,000! I'm pretty sure I would be kicked out of my house at that point. Currently, I have two large shelves full of books (two rows each, of course). I think that equals around 150 once you include my little piles around the house and next to my bed. I use my books as decorative pieces. =) You know, like Potterybarn does with the coffee tables and all. 




Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and features a new blogger each week. This week's feature is Rhiannon Paille. This week's question is:  What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?

 Fantasy is my favorite genre-- hands down. I think it all started with a Tamora Pierce book that featured a main character with my name. Four series and 15 books later, I was hooked. Before that though, my grown up self read a lot of Victorian Literature. I even thought about getting my Master's in it. That can be attributed to the awesome Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice and Kate Chopan's The Awakening. (sigh)

Hopping over from the Hop!

I try to keep my actual pile small. So I only buy books after I read a few. That being said, my list of books to buy is disgusting haha. There are SO many.

My Hop is here:

I have way too many books on my TBR list and TBR pile. All told that comes to about sixty books.

Now here's the scary math: I read roughly one book per week - and sometimes two. But two to three books are being added to my TBR list every week.

Stressful, right?

Wrong!

Hop on over to my blog - http://www.howardsherman.net and find out why.

Hopping through. Old GFC follower. New Twitter follower.
I just started using books as decoration. I bought a lamp that's a little too low, so I put a few books underneath it.

My pile is small compared to some that I have been seeing. My house isn't big enough for one thing. Hopping by, have a great weekend!

I enjoy fantasy. I read it more when I was younger though. Now it seems like there are so many genres within the fantasy genre.
