Book Blogger Hop (19) and Follow Friday (7)

This week's Book Blogger Hop question is...

If you could physically put yourself in a book or series, which one would it be, and why?

This is a hard question because a lot of books, even those with fantastic world-building and a fun cast of characters, still have major downsides. Take the Harry Potter series, for instance - all that magic and Quidditch and delicious food is undeniably awesome, but then consider all the trouble Voldemort causes. But since the question says in a book or series, I'll just go with the first Harry Potter book, before things got too bad.

This week's Follow Friday question is...

Give us 5 book related silly facts about you.

1. I love smelling books. It doesn't matter if they're old or new - their individual scents are all lovely to me.

2. For me, eating and reading go hand in hand. There's nothing like eating a bowl of watermelon with a book propped up in front of you. Of course, I always have to be careful not to get it dirty!

3. I have a nasty habit of dog-earing books. I try not to since it's bad for the pages, but sometimes I slip into the habit before I realize.

4. I have a constant stack of library books that I never allow to dip under 5. Whenever it gets to 6 or 7, I quickly order another batch.

5. I love the feeling after you read for such a long time that your head is fuzzy and your eyes are a bit strained. It's actually kind of nice.

If you're new to my blog, welcome! Please leave a link in your comment so I can go return the favor :)

Harry Potter would be a little chaotic for me...I need peace and quiet ;)
I love the way books smell as well...especially in the stacks of a college library :)

So many people have said Harry Potter! I find it really interesting how fascinated people are over Harry Potter. Still a good series nevertheless. I love eating and reading! It's like when I'm at the movies and I'm eating popcorn. I can't go without it, haha.

Thanks for the lovely compliments! ^^ I highly recommend you to read Nana by Ai Yazawa if you haven't already. And Mushihi by Yuki Urushibara

Anyway, I followed you back. :D I absolutely admire how you've been blogging so much this year already! 82 posts, wow! I can't wait to read more of your posts. :]

I chose Harry Potter too!! And the book smelling, LOVE IT! Once, I stuffed my nose in a book at my school's library and everyone gave me weird looks LOL I'd do it again though, there ain't nothing like it!

I'm all for Hogwarts (but before Umbridge gets there). :)

I always dog ear my books unless it's a hardback and then I use the dust cover.

Hopping through. I am not a reader and eater - except for cookbooks. Those go together.

Eating and dog-earring are complete opposites to what I do LOL. Tut tut! Just hopping back on by ;)

Magic candy is definitely awesome. Except cockroach clusters.... and I think it would freak me out if I was trying to eat my chocolate frog and it hopped away. :)

Bella said...

I've never been to your blog before, I love it! Definitely a new follower :D I can't eat while reading, because I'm so messy, I get crumbs in the book, which get stuck in the spine, which I can't get out, which annoys me. :L Have a great week!

I always love borrowing tons of books from the library too. I always borrow a new batch when I still have 4 books from the library.

Come check out my Follow Friday ^^ http://youraveragebookworms.blogspot.com/2011/03/follow-friday-1.html

Hi, just hopping by! Harry Potter is such a fun choice, especially before all the really bad stuff happens. I'd be fine living in that world until about Goblet of Fire. :)
And I'm just not coordinated enough to eat and read at the same time. multitasking = messy for me. :)
