Here’s Hop-pin’!!

August 23, 2010

I’m a little late to the party, but better late than never! For those of you stoppin’ by from the Crazy-For-Books Book Blogger Hop, welcome! We’re all about the Modern Library’s Top 100 Board’s list from the last century…we’re working our way up from the bottom of the list, and we’re not stopping til we reach the top!

I’m about two weeks away from celebrating my blog’s 1 Year Anniversary. Hard to believe I’ve been at it a year now! When I first began my blog, those of you die-hards that have been around for a while might remember that my initial quest was to read these 100 books in a 100 week time span. That lasted about three months! A remnant of this quest remains as my URL, since I am not computer literate and don’t know how to change it 🙂 While I’m sure my initial idea was logistically possible (as long as I didn’t eat, sleep, or leave my house), I realized that classics could not be speed-read and enjoyed at the same time. So I opted for enjoyment, as life is short and reading is meant to be enjoyable. It might take me about three more years to finish the list, but I think I’ll survive! It’s been fun so far, and I have come across some amazing books I would never have picked up otherwise! Check out the reviews of the first 30 books on the left side of the screen.

Crazy-For-Books asks us this week how many blogs we follow. At this point, I’m following about 40 blogs religiously, most of which are other classics blogs that I’ve found on the Hop or by recommendations on other sites. The list is growing quickly, though….half the fun is tracking down other bloggers out there who are doing what I’m doing. I’ve learned a lot and even have to thank one of my new favorite blogs for the suggestion to implement the new commenting system we’re using here now, which hopefully won’t make you type in weird words like “zygreft” and sell your first-born just to leave a comment (which I hope you will…leave a comment, that is!).

Thanks for coming by! Hope to see you back soon!
