Follow Friday 7/15

Every Friday, Parajunkee hosts Follow my Book Blog Friday! So welcome to another stop on this hop!




It's fairly simple- follow the hosting blog, the feature blog, and then use the links to discover new blogs to follow! And if someone follows you, be kind and follow back! It's a fun way to find new bloggers to read :)

This week's question is: What do I do when I'm not reading?

When I'm not reading (and blogging for that matter) I'm usually either with friends or I like to try out new fitness classes. Right now, I'm on this big Zumba and cardio kickboxing kick! If you haven't tried either, I highly recommend finding a class in your area to try it out!

Now, another blog hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books! This is a Friday-Monday blog which lasts this week from 7/15-7/18!

Book Blogger Hop

This week’s question comes from Veronica who blogs at: Read Books, Have Fun


How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?
 
I either purchase my books in paperback/hardcover or Kindle. I rarely go to the library, since they seem to have such a poor collection at my local one.
As well, a number of my books are given to me for review purposes or are won in giveaways.

Haha don't worry about it! Took me a while to get in to it as well. The trick is finding things you enjoy doing (which sounds like an oxymoron).

Thanks for stopping by! I need to start exercising again. I took a very long break and now that it's over, I've become too lazy to do all the tasks I need to do! I've got to snap out of it. I'm following you now by the way.

Hi! Thanks for the follow: I've returned it.
Ah, Zumba: everyone says that's great. It's really big in the US isn't it? It's just started popping up over here in the UK, I think. :)

Your library might have the books you want but they might be popular. Check out their catalog. If they don't have the books you want, talk to a librarian and ask how you can request that the library purchase certain titles. Or ask about interlibrary loans.

Two years ago I started tracking where my books were coming from. Please come see where I get my books.

Brenna said...

Meg, Zumba is so much fun! You should really try and see if you can find a class. I'm not sure how popular it is in the US, but it's everywhere here in Canada! So I'd bet it's about the same down there ;)

I’m seeing a pattern of book acquisition here. After all, there are just so many places to get books and so many different ways to read them.

It’s hard to beat the library for price and selection but it’s even harder to beat the convenience of browsing BN or Amazon from a Nook or Kindle, hitting a button and reading the book you picked in about sixty seconds.

As usual, my answer to this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is all over the map. Hop on over and read my multipart answer – http://www.howardsherman.net

I really need to check out Zumba. Everyone raves about it, yet I still have yet to try it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Funny you should mention something about my pictures of cupcakes, because I just made a batch last night. So new pictures up on the blog. Check them out!

Thanks for stopping by. I've wanted to try Zumba for so long, but am afraid I'll make a fool out of myself. I ordered the DVD at my library, so I can do it in my home where no one can see me trip (I'm a total klutz). I have a Kindle as well. Have a great weekend!

I'm kinda jealous that you do such fun fitness classes. I go running, but that's about all I can work up the effort to do :) New follower!

Hopping through. New follower! I've never tried zumba, but I love cardio kickboxing. Those are some of the most fun fitness classes.
