Feature & Follow Friday #38


Happy Follow Friday everyone! Let me tell you a little bit about this HOP. Every friday or really Thursday evening we all get together and say HI! But, we need to know how to find you, so please leave your link in the Mr. Linky below. Also on Follow Friday we have a Feature...because alliteration is the way we roll. Each week is a different feature from the book blogging community. They are picked randomly or I give in after multiple harassing emails. Just depends on the week. If you want to be next weeks feature...leave your link. Also, I've had a recent rash of people signing up on the linky weeks later, which sort of defeats the purpose. If you want to participate check back here on the next Friday!

Our feature this week is...




Confessions of a Page Turner”=


Hi fellow book lovers! My name is Rebecca and I am thrilled to be a new member of the book blogging community! I absolutely love sharing with others about reading and so, starting a blog about books seemed like a great way of doing this. Ever since my dad read The Hobbit out loud to my sister and I when we were little, I have loved books and reading. My husband and I currently live in Oklahoma while he finishes up his medical residency. Once he is done, we are excited about our dream of moving to somewhere in New England! I am an aspiring writer and am currently working on two books...a nonfiction book and a novel. My hobbies besides writing and reading include scrapbooking, painting, and knitting. Basically anything that allows me to express my creative side!

Look for a little bit of everything on my book blog :). Variety is the spice of life and I enjoy dabbling in almost every genre, although, fantasy and fiction by women writers are particular favorites. I look forward to getting to know all of you and conversing with you about magical and wonderful books! Happy Reading!

Q. Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100factsaboutme, give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.


  1. I'm an ADD reader. I am reading like five different books at once.
  2. My physical TBR is now close to 100, yet I continue to purchase books. In fact I just ordered three from amazon right before I did this post
  3. I so like Urban Fantasy over Paranormal Romance, sometimes I want to punch the testosterone prone heroes in the face and call them "little boy"
  4. I read everywhere...in the tub, in the car at stoplights (don't tell the police officers!), in the line at the grocery store and while I'm uploading web sites at work
  5. I've now taken to downloading audio books and keep on increasing my membership at audible.com, I love the 4.95 sales!!!



Now for the Follow Fun!






To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host { Parajunkee.com } and any one else you want to follow on the list
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers - http://readingwithrebecca.blogspot.com/
  3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments
  5. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
  7. If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

Happy Follow Friday!

Follow it up with your twitter address if you want to get that one out!

Love the follow friday and figured I'd drop in and say hi. :)

Andrea said...

Hi! I love your blog so much. I'm fairly new to twitter, so I'm still learning the ropes. I ReTweet you all the time. I love to read paranormal & urban fantasies. So most of these people are right up my alley. My sis-n-law & I are in the process of starting a blog, so I'll leave a link when we're up & going, if that's ok. Thanks!

Ref: I am reading like five different books at once.

Wow! I really need a Mega-mind, or at least a memory upgrade. It's too easy for me to mix up the characters unless they're from two totally different genres.

Adam said...

Well, you know I'm a long-time follower, but this is my first time participating in the Hop.

So, hello! And we're off! :)

Lady Reader said...

Hey Rachel! I've gotcha beat on the TBR list! However, I don't think my OCD will let me read in the bath because I'm so afraid of getting my books or Nook wet. haha. I've never tried audio either. Thought about it though.

Have a great weekend!

Hi! I just participated for the first time in Follow Friday! Thanks for hosting this- I'm excited to find fellow book bloggers! :)

Fireflywishes said...

Thanks for hosting this PJ, it's very much appreciated, as a new blogger esp, it provides a great opportunity to get to know new people and to get traffic to our unknown blogs :)

That said, I'm slightly annoyed when I click on some of the links and realize they don't even have a Follow Friday Post, OR they just have the button on the post and don't bother to answer the question (just have a random post of their one, or don't have a post or a button and just link up for the sake of linking up.

I realize that's not your fault at all, it's just disappointing - how hard is it to answer a simple question if you're going to sign up?
