On the Broomstick Follow Friday!

Happy Follow Friday!

Have a magical weekend!!!


Question of the week:
What do I do when I am not reading?
Hmmm. I read so much, but filling in the blanks...I write alot. Blogging takes up some of my time. So do my puppies and my husband. I review music, so when I am not listening to it, I am usually writing a review about it. When time permits, I try to make my Thursday knitting class, but lately that has been quite the challenge with my full time job demanding more of my time than normal. So, I crochet a bit here and there, watch a sitcom with my husband over dinner and then I am usually back on the computer writing, blogging or reviewing something. Typically, this means I am surrounded by my furry kids, trying to either write a bit on the book, toss some laundry in the machine and run the vacuum all while running plot lines in my head and trying to squeeze as much into my time off as I can. Life is never boring at my house.

Question of the week:
Where do you get your books?
Answer: Most of the time I buy my books, both on my Nook and in physical form. I get some from publishers and authors who are interested in having me review them, and I find some at the e-branch of my public library. I love that you can use the e-branch Overdrive system with the iPad and the Nookcolor. It is super cool. I also use Netgalley. For any of you bloggers out there who have not investigated Netgalley, you really need to check it out. It is like an extended library check out system that you can use on your e-reader or iPad.


  1. Hi! New follower here! I found you on Follow Friday =) If you'd like to visit my own FF post, it's here: Have a great day!

  2. I love NetGalley! And I check out books from my library with Overdrive as well, quite a bit... you can put them on hold, but I always forget to check my e-mail and download them on time, so I tend to browse for things that are available right now.

    I'm a librarian, and I'm always helping people navigate Overdrive... I felt so triumphant this week as I helped somebody through the whole process of setting it up on their iPad this week. It's sad how many people just aren't tech savvy and end up storming out halfway through the setup process. It's so frustrating, especially when you're like, "No! Come back! You only have two or three more steps to go!" So it felt great to help somebody out and actually have things work!

  3. Hi,

  5. Hey, New follower here. I love to knit and crochet as well but it's hard to find the time when there is always so much to do. Hope you have a great weekend.

  6. OMG! Your flashy button thingy is awesome! It totally caught my eye this morning as I was scrolling through on my dashboard. When did you change it? I hope I'm not really late to catch on, but it's been a busy week. =)

  7. I stopped by from the blog hop. Love all the lights on your blog.

  8. I’m seeing a pattern of book acquisition here. After all, there are just so many places to get books and so many different ways to read them.

    It’s hard to beat the library for price and selection but it’s even harder to beat the convenience of browsing BN or Amazon from a Nook or Kindle, hitting a button and reading the book you picked in about sixty seconds.

    As usual, my answer to this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is all over the map. Hop on over and read my multipart answer –
