Friday Memes 6/27

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
Do you follow a lot of blogs but rarely read them or do you follow a few you read regularly?

My Answer:
I follow a lot of blogs but there are only a few that I read regularly.


Hosted by: Rose City Reader

"Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name."

Passengers jockeyed for position along the steamboat Louisiana's railings, waving and calling merry farewells to the crowds lining the levee. Darius Thornton stalked determinedly across the deck in the opposite direction.

My Thoughts
Fun beginning! You can definitely tell, just by these lines, that Darius is not as happy to be on the boat as the others!

I'm the same I will try to pop over to my favourite blogs and keep up to date with and when I do have a quiet day that's when I like to check out as many blogs as I can.

Sharon-It can be a bit hard to keep up, can't it!?

JoyAnne said...

I read the posts that seem interesting to me.

Tea norman said...

Hmmm, he seems to have a chip on his shoulder. He doesn't seem to be traveling for the fun of it. Something different is on his mind.

I follow as many as I can but it's definitely challenging! Interesting beginning! I love the steamboat aspect.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I follow a lot of blogs and I skim almost all of them. But unless they capture my attention right away, I don't fully read them.
I enjoyed the opening to Full Steam Ahead and would keep reading to find out what's going on with Darius. Here's the link to my Friday post: INTERIOR DESIGNS.

Here is my POST.

Claudia {Sparrowhawk} said...

I am very particular about the blogs I follow, and I've always wanted to travel to the south! I hear the food is delicious; hope your read is fun!

I read my regular blogs almost every day and visit other blogs when I find an interesting post.

Have a good weekend.

Happy Hopping!!

I don't really follow any blogs regularly. Instead, I sort of just skim through my feed and see if there's a new post that interests me.

Brooke Bumgardner said...

Interesting beginning! I follow a lot but don't always have the chance to read or comment on posts.

Here is my Bookish Memes post.

Abbi Hart said...

JoyAnne-Me too!

Tea norman-He definitely didn't want to be there!

Katherine-It is a bit hard to keep up! I love the steamboat aspect too!

Sandra-I usually skim the post titles and read the ones that I want to. It is a fun beginning!

gautami-Yes it is!

Claudia-I tend to be less particular about what I follow and more picky about which ones I actually read. I've traveled to Texas a few times and through some of the other southern states but I'd love to visit some of them more!

Elizabeth-Cool!

A Haven For Readers-That's kinda the way I do it too.

Brooke-Me too!
