Follow Friday & Blog Hop


Happy Friday! Here's our weekly opportunity for bloggers to come together and check out each others sites. Please remember to leave a comment below, along with your link so that I can check out your site, and return the favor.

If you want to participate, it's easy. To learn more and to enter, check out: Parajunkee  and Crazy for Books!

Q. What is the book that you really don't want to admit to loving?? 

Dammit. Twilight. But I don't lust over actors young enough to be one of my kids. Nor will you ever see me wearing shirt choosing a "team" of any sort.

Q. Since today is April Fool's Day in the USA, what is the best prank you ever played on someone OR that someone has ever played on you?

I've never played a big prank on anyone. But when we were dating, my husband's friend called and managed to convince me that my husband (then-boyfriend) had been arrested. I knew it was April Fool's Day, but he managed to convince me anyway. When I found out it was a joke, I was ready to kick his ass and I think I stayed mad for a week. Photobucket




Q. Where is your favorite place to read?

My favorite place to read is in my living room, on the rocking chair AFTER my husband and kids go to bed!










I hope you'll visit again in the coming days. I'm giving away two Robin Hobb books as part of the Fool for Books Giveaway Hop April 1-2. And we've got a great Q&A scheduled for Monday with Larissa Ione, featuring a giveaway of her super-sexy Eternal Rider!

New follower...I hope he took you out for a REALLY nice dinner after that one, and the friend should have washed your car for you. ;)

I love to read after everyone has gone to bed. It's the only time I can be sure I won't be interrupted.

Happy Friday!

I'm pretty sure I would stay mad for a while if my husband's friend tried to convince me hubs got arrested. Somewhat less than amusing:) Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm now your newest follower:)

I think April Fool day can be fun as long as someone didn't get hurt mentally or physically. Wanna know what happened to me? Check outMy Answer for this weeks Blogger Hop.

I have to agree after the kids go to bed is always the best time to read. :)

Hey, just hopping by! I also am not a fan of practical jokes. They just don't feel funny. :( But at least it all worked out in the end. :) Have a great weekend!

At first I wasn't going to participate in this week's Book Blogger Hop. I'm not even sure why.

But here I am. And I'm glad! To dispel any false impressions people may have had about me being a old, stodgy fuddy-duddy I'm happy to share some of my very best pranks with you.

Highlights include - low-grade explosives, eggs and salt shakers. Get all the side-splitting details over on my blog - http://www.howardsherman.net

They date back to my younger years as a Brooklyn boy which brings about some introspection.

I'm going to go pull some pranks today. Look out world! I'm coming out of prankster retirement!

Thanks for stopping in at the blog and for the follow. I absolutely love the eye candy you share here! My favorite place to read is in bed when all the lights are out and everyone is asleep. Of course, I guess I should add that I read on my ereader!:-)
