Friday Hops!

It's time to do some blog hoppin'!





This week's question from Parajunkees' View  for the Friday Follow: 
Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?
This is a bit tough for me!  I have my Master's Degree in Women and Minority Literature.  And the books that really influenced this area of study for  me were Kate Chopin's The Awakening, Toni Morrison's Song of Solomon.and The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood (Ok, I can't choose just one) but in all honesty, there are so many more!  My blogging endeavors here however encompass many more genres and has become a way for me to step outside my reading comfort zone.

And from Crazy For Books: 
“How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) Pile?”
Oh my?  My TBR pile toppled over long ago!  I keep an ongoing of list of books I want to read and it's well into the hundreds!  There just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day, nor enough coffee!

  2. Oh to have more hours in the day - solely for reading of course! How else are we supposed to get through our TBR piles?!!!

  6. New follower hopping by. Love your blog theme. :) A couple of the books you've listed are on my TBR list. I am feeling like such a slacker, lately. Have a great weekend!

  9. I have a lot of books I want to read, but only about 12 physical books that are waiting on my bookshelf. I'm a new follower. Come on over to my site and enter to win a Kindle on my book launch of
    The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook.

  10. I have way too many books on my TBR list and TBR pile. All told that comes to about sixty books.

    Now here's the scary math: I read roughly one book per week - and sometimes two. But two to three books are being added to my TBR list every week.

    Stressful, right?

    Wrong!

    Hop on over to my blog - http://www.howardsherman.net and find out why.
