Friday Memes 8/22

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
Do you reply to comments on your blog or do you figure folks won't be stopping back to read your reply so you don't bother?

My Answer:
I used to not reply unless there was a question but one of my goals this year was to be better about that and I try to reply to each comment. Sometimes it takes me awhile to get around to it but I don't think I've missed one this year!

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."

I've buried nearly everyone I love.
That's the thought that keeps crossing my mind as I sit in the restaurant, picking at the seam along my sleeve where it's starting to wear thin.
Dualed by Elsie Chapman
  My Thoughts
That first sentence definitely hits hard!

It definitely takes a while to reply so good job on not missing one! That's quite a beginning! I've seen Dualed but haven't picked it up. I may have to next time I see it though!

Elizabeth said...

I am obsessive about visiting every blog on the blog hop and commenting and returning comments to ones made on my blog. :)

I ask for notification of other comments too. :)
Happy Friday.

Happy Hopping!!

That is a strong first sentence. I thought this book had an interesting though rather appalling concept. I hope you are enjoying it.

Billy Burgess said...

I keep telling myself that I'm going to reply to every comment, but then I forget all about it.

Oh wow, the book starts off as a tear-jerker, huh? My Friday Thoughts

Unknown said...

I love it the beginning. I love the emotions that are conveyed through the protagonist, it certainly sets the mood and you've got me curious. I will look into this one :)

Katherine-Sometimes it takes me a bit to get around to it but better late than never! Dualed was an interesting read!

Elizabeth-Good for you!

Kathy-It was a bit twisted of a premise but I was rather intrigued!

Billy-I usually forget for a couple days then catch up. I need to be a bit better at prompt replying!

Anne-Not really a tear-jerker but a bit depressing!

Claudia-It is a rather well written beginning!

Topazshell-Yes it is!
