Book Blogger Hop!

The Hop is hosted by Crazy For Books!

Hi everyone coming from the Hop! Can’t wait to meet some new people and find some new blogs!

“When you read a book that you just can’t get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?”
It takes a lot for me to abandon a book honestly. I SHOULD do it more because sometimes I inflict so much torture upon myself by finishing books I don’t like.  If I’m having a hard time with a book I generally switch to a magazine or a really light read and then come back to it to see if it is ME or the book.
Oh and today is my birthday and I’m giving away books! Actually, I’ve been giving them away all this week!! A little bit of everything! Check out my giveaways here!

    Stopping by on the Hop. Happy Birthday!

  4. Happy birthday Jamie!! LOL, I usually don't force myself to keep reading a book if I'm really not getting into it, but I often will try picking it up a couple times more before giving up entirely.

  5. Happy birthday! A new hopper, and I like your answer. It takes a lot for me to abandon a book, too, but there are times when I should just get over it and abandon it already!

  6. Happy birthday.

    Happy Birthday! Thats a good idea to switch to a magazine! I shall have to try that sometime 😀

    Hop on by! 😀

  8. Happy birthday!!! that happens to me too, sometimes i'm just not in the mood for that particular book. I'll go back to it a few days or maybe a week later, and suddenly it's much more enjoyable!

    and. . . sometimes the book just plain sucks.

    Happy Birthday! I think I am going to have to try your technique to see if I have a new perspective.

Thank you so much for reaching out to me via comment. Seriously, it makes my day. I appreciate and read EVERY SINGLE comment. I do try real hard to reply to comments but I'm not able to do so daily and sometimes I get very behind because...well..life. You know how it goes sometimes! If I haven't replied back to you, feel free to tweet me so we can chat further as sometimes that is easier for me to get to when I'm on the go!
