Tagging, Hopping, and Following Along

Hi everyone!  Another chance to hop around to see old friends and new. If you're a new follower, please leave a comment so I can hop by your place. And old followers, I always love to hear from you.  Have a wonderful weekend!

The 18 & Over Tag Along, hosted by Bitten by Paranormal Romance is a great chance for those of us who read adult books to find others like them.  Thanks to Laurie for hosting this! If you haven't joined in yet, stop over there and add your name!

This week's question:  Where is your favorite place to buy or swap books?
I go to the local Borders near my house, which thankfully is one of the locations that isn't closing since there isn't another bookstore within 20 miles of that one.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View. Thanks to her for hosting this one! This week's question is:
Give 5 book related silly facts about you.

Ok, here goes:

1.  I can't read horror.  I'm just a silly chicken about scary stuff.
2.  But I probably read more erotica than I should, which balances out the horror thing.
3.  Only a small number of people in my life know what kind of books I write.
4.  I'm eagerly awaiting Lover Unleashed to get to the aforementioned Borders on Tuesday and have saved a gift card I received for Christmas to use to buy it.
5.  I can read faster than just about anyone I know or ever met.

And last, but not least, Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy For Books.  Thanks to her for this weekly chance to hop around and meet other bloggers! This week's question: If you could physically put yourself into a book or series, which one would it be and why?
Hmmmm......the historian in me says any of the Sherlock Holmes stories, but the less serious side says The Black Dagger Brotherhood series.  Bye, bye Jane.  LOL!

Following you on the 18 and older tag along, I am online shopper. I live over a half hr. away from any book store at all so its easier and cheaper that way.

Have a great weekend!!

Hey Gabrielle - Hope you're having a great weekend? Sounds like you're doing really well with the typing up of your book. I wish for a taste of your efficiency. You must have a very sharp mind me thinks - where mine is more jam! Them's the breaks ;(

Stopping by from all the above hops - to say hi, check in. Shah .X

I used to live close to a Borders and it was my favorite place to go and hide out. Happy Friday!

Sally Sapphire said...

Hmm, there used to be a day when my horror shelves overwhelmed my erotic shelf, but now it's the reverse! :)

Hey hun, droppin by on the 18+.
I remember when there use to be book stores everywhere but now I have only one within an hours driving distance. But they rarely have what I want so I shop online more now.
Have a great weekend!

Deborah Lawrenson said...

I really enjoy your blog, and the way you write about writing. I've been a follower for quite a while, but I don't know whether you have visited my blog yet.

I'm a fellow writer, blogging about books, art, publication, etc.

Elizabeth said...

Interesting choices to be "in."

Hope everyone has a fun hope.

My answer has three choices - stop by if you like.

Hopping through. I hope your Borders isn't one of the stores that is closing.

Hi, Gabrielle! Hopping by for the first time. Your books sound really interesting! I love weaving history into my writing too. Looking forward to reading more of your posts :)


Belinda said...

Hopping through! I'm totally with you - a little loving from the Brothers would be worth hopping into a book for. I'm a new follower and you can find my answer at The Bookish Snob Happy reading!

Alexis @ Reflections of a Bookaholic said...

I can't read horror either. I have nightmares. I know I know, I am super lame.
