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:
Are you able to choose your favorite books? (submitted by Julie @ Stepping Stone Book Reviews)
My first reaction to the prompt was what??? I don’t get it. But after a little bit of thought I decided to interpret it to mean when people ask me what are my favorite books do I have an answer. Simple answer is of course I do. Harder answer is I usually will taylor that answer depending on who is asking. Students get different answers than say friends or family. But even when people I don’t know well ask, I might answer them with my own question: what types of books do you like? That way I can answer their questions with books they like and then the conversation can turn more into a reader’s advisory conversation. Hopefully then the asker gets a few suggestions that they will like and enjoy too.
This was the hardest prompt yet, mostly because I’m not sure what it was asking. I am looking forward to seeing how others answer this one and what they interpreted it as meaning.
Until next week, I hope you are having a great reading experience!
