March 22, Friday in Memes #6

The Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
    Do you read along with your Audio books? (submitted by Angelica @ Paperback Princess)

My Answer:
      I do love audio books. Though even 5 years ago I could not imaging listening to the audiobooks, I could not concentrate.  I guess the quality of sound has changed drastically as well, not just me. But now I cannot even listen to the music or radio, it seems the waste of time.

Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Gillion Dumas of Rose City Reader. A weekly meme where readers share the first sentence of the book they are reading and say what they think. 
The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice. Join us every Friday and share an excerpt from a book you’ve been reading.

My Book Beginnings:
Henry, Kansas, is a hot town. And a cold town.
My 56:
Henrietta looked at him. "There are some old tools in the basement, and some more in the barn. I bet there's a chisel. do you want me to check?"
"That would be good," Henry said. " It took me forever last night . I kept worrying that I was scratching the doors. I hope we don't mess any of then up."
Outline: I love novels set in a particular town or city. It makes it feel more realistic. The extracts evoke the expectation for a good hunt and secrets, so I am exited I came across this book.


  1. A hot and cold town... lol... ok... Happy weekend!

  2. The opening certainly makes you wonder what's going on there.

  3. Interesting beginning. This sounds good. This week I am featuring Grave Witch by Kalayna Price - a book I first read before I started blogging. Happy reading!

  4. I think it's interesting you say that music and radio are a waste of time now. Sometimes I feel like I should be listening to a story when I'm listening to music. Alas.

    1. I believe there should not be any shame in indulging in any of those)))

  5. Interesting...I feel the same way about television. I would rather read or listen to a book (or both) than watch TV.
    While I can't honestly say I love audiobooks, I do embrace the idea of reading along with them.

    1. TV did not interest me at all nowadays, to boring))

  6. I've been learning to listen to audiobooks since January. I really believe it's an acquired skill...
