Friday Memes 2/6

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
Is there anything that turns you off when you are reading a blog post? For example: two posts in one post such as answers to two memes.

My Answer:
Not really, sometimes I get a bit bored if the post is really long.

"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."

It was nearing midnight and the Prime Minister was sitting alone in his office, reading through a long memo that was slipping through his brain without leaving the slightest trace of meaning behind.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

My Thoughts
Quirky beginning.

I am incredibly guilty to having multiple memes in one post, because at the moment I've got four in one! I do try to not make it too boring and long and don't expect people to reply to everything, but I prefer one massive post to four shorter ones. I love HP and haven't reread the books in ages. Might have to get on that! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

Multiple memes don't bother me either though if it does start feeling long I do tend to skip portions. I love the beginning of this. I've read like that often enough. It's been so long since I've read this one I had forgotten the beginning.

Multiple memes don't bother me as long as it stays interesting. I find myself learning new things. As for your book, I am one of those people, much to my sister's dismay, that has never read a Harry Potter book and I've only seen bits and pieces of the movies.

I agree with you. I am not into long long post. I rather have a paragraph and then another post later.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Multiple memes don't bother me, but I prefer that the Book Beginning and Friday 56 posts relate to the same book. That gives me a good taste of that story.
I enjoyed all the Harry Potter books, and this one was no exception.

I am guilty of multiple memes for Friday. I try to keep the post short and to the point, though. I don't mind others doing it, either. I read and enjoyed all the Harry Potter books. Hope you enjoy it.

Juli-I'm with you on preferring it to be all in one post rather than several ones on the same day! I am really enjoying reading the HP books for the first time!

Katherine-I think we all have read like that at some point!

Lisa-This is my first time through so don't feel too bad!

Alysia-I don't mind if there are several meme posts in one but when other posts get long my mind drifts.

Sandra-That's a good point!

Sherry-I am enjoying them! Only one more to go!

Long posts do have me skimming too.

Nice answer.

I don't mind if there is multiple memes in a post. But if the post is long I tend to skim through it.

I get bored too, or maybe not bored, but find my attention wandering before I make it through a long meme post.
