Meme for Book Bloggers

This Meme for Book Bloggers comes courtesy of Confessions of a Bibliovore. I discovered both the meme and the blog thanks to Liz at Tea Cozy.

How many other kidlit blogs do you read?

Many. I link to my favorite book blogs and author blogs here, within the Bildungsroman website.

What's the most recent add?

What Adrienne Thinks About That.

How often do you post a book review to your blog?
I'd love to post one a day, for every book I read, but I often haven't the time to do so. Sometimes, I post three in one week; sometimes, three in a month. Though I don't post a book review on a regular date and time, I participate in Poetry Friday every week.

Do you post about anything else?

I consider this a book blog and rarely post about my personal life. When I do, it is usually about my beautiful cat, Hollywood.

Do you only blog books you like, or the stinkers too?
I tend to blog only about good books. It's good karma. Accentuate the positive. I don't want to waste time on negative thinking - or put-down someone else's favorite book or lifelong work.

How do you keep track of what you want to read?
Yes, I have a list, both in my mind and typed up.

How do you keep track of what you've read?
See above. My brain is a card catalogue. My co-workers call me the walking encyclopedia. For the past two years, I've kept a list what I read. I have not posted the full lists online, but I do post a list every four weeks noting what I think are the best books I've read that month.

Do you work with kids?
Yes. I've worked in libraries and bookstores since I was a kid myself.

...in the age group of the books you mostly blog about?
Yes.

Do you read grown-up books?
Yes. In addition to juvenile fiction and teen fiction, I also read contemporary fiction, classic literature, plays, musical librettos, and, sometimes, poetry and short stories. Click here to find out my favorite genres, books, and characters.

Hollywood
glamorous

Hollywood is such a great name for a cat. I don't know why exactly, it just is.

Re: Hollywood

Thank you. Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of her favorite films because she hears her name AND the word cat quite often.

Great meme, Little Willow! I've worked in book stores too. It's how my love of fiction grew stronger. :)

I just watched the Dr. Who finale.
