Book Bloggers Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. It was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy@Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. 

This week’s prompt is: Do you acknowledge publication days for books you have read with a blog or social media post?

I think this one can be interpreted two different ways. My immediate thought was that whenever I write a review on my blog I always include the publication date, especially when I am writing about a book that hasn’t been published yet. Older books I at least include the year it was published if not the exact date.

But then when I reread the prompt it started me thinking in another direction: do I post on social media on a books publication date announcing that it is out? Other than my blog I am not that active on social media, even though I have both a twitter and Instagram account. So no, I don’t announce about books publishing unless it is on my blog and as part of a review or a Goodreads Monday post.

Once I have written a review of a ARC, I don’t think much about when it is coming out, unless there is that rare occasion that I want to purchase the book. Then I might make a note to myself to purchase the book after it comes out.

What do you do to help promote a book’s publication date?


  1. I automatically assumed it was do you do a post about when the book is published – I never even thought about including the publication date on a post! I only do a publication post if I am on a blog tour and it hasn’t been published yet, however I have only recently started doing that. I have done posts if the Author has mentioned something to me – I like to help out in any way I can!

  2. Like you, I initially assumed it was including the publication date in a post which I always do but then I thought it was more about advertising publication dates. I wonder which one the author intended?
