Book Hop (August 6-8) & Giveaway!!!

Alright my dearest hoppers, its hoppin' time, so grab the info over at and join in the fun!

This weeks question is "Do You listen to music when you read?"

I don't listen to music when I read unless I'm at the gym and I'm trying to tune out everyone else. Then I will pop in my ear buds (that are plugged into my discman... yeah, I don't own an ipod... don't judge me!) and turn up the volume as LOUD as possible and then proceed to read whatever book I have. Other than that, there would be no point for me to listen to music because I wouldn't hear it. No really, I can sit in front of the TV with my girls and read and not hear a darn thing. Sometimes that includes them... HA! All of the sudden I feel a little hand on my arm, "Mommy" *snap* and it's back to reality. :D

  7. New follower here, it looks like you've got a cute little blog over here. I'll be following your reviews from now on.

    So you read in a closet huh? That's new one, I've read in some peculiar places but not a closet yet. I have read in my backyard in the dark before with a flashlight. I won't judge you if you won't judge me. =)

    Happy blog hopping and I hope you're enjoying your weekend.

  8. I'm a new follower and would love to be entered for your giveaway.

  9. Happy Belated Birthday! I like your explanation of reading in the closet - mine would be the "water" closet aka bathroom.

    Found you via the blog hops and have become a new follower.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

I always love comments, and I read every single one!

Also, this is now designated an award free zone. Although I love awards and I love everyone for thinking of me, I just don't have the time to honor them like they need to be honored. Thank you though for your consideration!

XOXO Jen the Bibliophile
