Welcome to the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Crazy-for-Books.
Before getting to this week's question, I wanted to let you all know that there is a massive Giveaway Hop going on right now! I am offering my followers a chance to win $20 to spend at Amazon.com or The Book Depository! Want to enter? Go HERE.
Now, back to The Hop. This week's question was:
"If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author?"
Absolutely! There are a few authors whose work I own in entirety (J.K. Rowling, J.D. Salinger, Dennis Cooper) and others that I am slowly buying my way through (Kurt Vonnegut, Orson Scott Card, Mark Twain, William S. Burroughs). Fortunately, I have been lucky so far in that I've fallen in love with authors whose works have yet to disappoint me - I keep buying their books and loving them! Now, there are some authors whose books I've loved but haven't compelled me to rush out and buy another one, let alone all. I think something special has to happen in that first read to make me want to go out and get the second - and if I like the second as much, I know where it's all going to lead: more, more, more!
Q. What is on your current playlist right now?
Hm. That's kind of a tough question, because I listen to my music a bit randomly. I have a 6-CD Changer in my car, so I tend to swap those in and out pretty regularly, and I always have my iTunes/Pandora on "Shuffle." If I had to choose the five songs I've been listening to most regularly lately, though, I would say:
1. "Rolling in the Deep" by Adele
2. "Fix You" by Cold Play
3. "Uprising" by Muse
4. "Today" by Joshua Radin
5. "One for You, One for Me" by Bright Eyes
Thanks for Visiting!
