Follow Friday (7) / Book Blog Hop (6)

Follow Friday!  TGIF!!! Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee. It's a great way to meet new blogger friends!

This weeks question is:
Q. Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100factsaboutme, give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.
1. I am TOTALLY addicted to reading. :)

2. I've started collecting e-readers apparently. (I LOVE physical books, but I also love saving a tree too!) I still like books the best though.

3. I used to read general fiction books ALL the time.. Then I read The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, and fell in love with YA!!

4. I try to read while walking on the treadmill... it never turns out very well.

5.  Instead, I listen to audiobooks while I walk! :)~

Book Blogger Hop!!Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by It's a great way to meet new people and friends around the blogworld!

Today's question is:
"If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?"

Hmmm... I'm 'going to say in The Mortal Instruments Series! Because it's my favorite series, and... come on.. Who wouldn't want to meet Jace?! LoL!

I also wanted to mention that made a Facebook account just for TheReaderBee. (I have Facebook, but it's kind of ackward talking to family and friends that are non-readers about books!) I made a regular account instead of a fan page, so that I could still communicate with friends. I would love to have some new Facebook Followers!

  1. I have yet to actually listen to an audiobook. I think I should try that sometime.

  2. I tried reading on the treadmill once. Once.

    Come visit me at Red Hot Books

  3. Hopping through. I can't read on the treadmill either. Sometimes I can with the elliptical.

  4. Hey there! New follower here!

    LOL! I tried to walk and read on the treadmill too and failed! Too much moving! Now I watch TV and read later.

    Happy Blog Hop Friday!

  5. Haha I've never tried reading on a treadmill. I should try that some day :D

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. I haven't tried reading on the treadmill, but my friend does it all the time. She uses large type books, though I don't imagine many YA titles are being printed in large type.

    Small Review

  7. I really like the idea of audio books while on the treadmill. I might have to try that out I sure could use the workout.

  8. I haven't read the series but I will eventually. My husband read them and I just have to find the books. He tends to leave them in odd places.

    My answer's a little selfish. Come see why. Happy blog hop.

  9. I have to admit Ive tried twice to read the Mortal Instruments series and couldnt get into them. Im a new follower

  10. I just started City of Bones and then stopped. I really have to get into it again, because I really enjoyed it at the time and I just got distracted by something else! Anyway, I am also your newest follower and you should stop by my blog to follow me too.

    Thanks and I hope you're having a fabulous start to your weekend! (^_^)

  11. Hi! Hopping by! I'd love to be in The Mortal Instruments too!

    If you want, drop by my blog and see what series I would love to be in..

    Here's my post.

  12. I would LOVE to be in the Mortal Instruments series! It would be so fun to hang out with all of the characters! :)

  13. I haven't read that series. Will have to do it.

  14. I don't think I could focus on reading on the treadmill! I know my boyfriend listens to audio books walking to & from work (& often at work!).

  15. You're addicted to reading?! Aren't we all? LOL!

    Yeah reading and walking is hard. I've been reading while on the exercise bike. That's not so hard. :)

    Have a good weekend!

  16. You gotta love to read to be a book blogger! I mean it just wouldn't make sense! Really like blogging and writing/reading reviews now because I like to know if there's a book I shouldn't get into or if there is one that I have to leap for!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower
    Jessica@a GREAT read

  17. Hopping by to check out your choices. Great answers. I may have to checkout the Mortal Instruments in the future. Have a great weekend.

  18. Hopping by...

    I also read while on the treadmill. I attempt to anyways. haha.

    Happy Friday!

  19. Hi Christy! New follower coming through the Crazy for Books blog hop, and wanted to say great pick for your series! I've heard a lot of cool things about the Mortal Instruments books, and it's steampunkish, which makes it all the better! I, too, have suffered the perils of trying to read on a treadmill and have found that it doesn't work ;-) lol

    Anywho, hope you have a great weekend!


  20. That's great! I can't listen to audiobooks when I walk because my mind always wonders and I miss the story! I'm already a follower! My FF is at Coffee Table Press

  21. Hi Christy! We share the same name just different spelling!

    I never thought about the Mortal Instruments for my answer! That's a good one!

    I used to listen to audiobooks on my way to work (75 miles one way-I live in the boonies) and it made the time fly by but I can't imagine it on my treadmill! I'd be wiping out big time, LOL! Be Careful, Girlie!

    I'm glad I met you! Stop by and see me!

  22. new follower!!
    reading and walking? LOL that's a disaster waiting to happen. to my face. haha
    new follower! :)

  23. My choice is the Myron Bolitar series by Harlan Coben.

  24. Old follower stopping by from the hop! I love the Mortal Instruments as well - would definitely like to meet Jace!

    Here's my hop!

    Hope you have a great weekend :-)

  25. Treadmill reading has never worked out well for me either, although audio books are the perfect motivation to keep going! New follower!

    Have a great weekend.

  26. I tried Audio books and I can't get into them at all. I love Jace! Happy Friday!

  27. Good choice, stop and see mine.

  28. I've never read that series. I am an old follower, but a new follower on your networked blogs :)

  29. Apologies in advance for my answer this week as it will not immediately resonate with the book blogger population which happens to be 99.5% female.

    My choice is a book series geared towards guys which won’t enthrall the vast majority of my fellow book bloggers (who are almost entirely female) with the extensive discussion of powerful weapons and sexy milspec gear, beautiful women, eye-popping action sequences (with occasionally obscene violence), and the like.

    But there IS something in my answer that just about everyone of the female persuasion can benefit from my decidedly “books for guys” post. Hop on over to to find out what it is.

    Happy Hop Friday!

  30. I find a lot common in your FF that I usually do in my life.I too am addicted to books try, read books while walking on treadmill, love reading books on e-readers.My FF-

  31. Thanks everyone for stopping by so far! I'm working my way around to everyone. I hope everyone is gearing up for a great weekend!

  32. TMI was one of my choices too! Mainly because of Jace...

  33. Thanks for stopping by. I've been seeing a lot of great picks today. I hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!

  34. Ow, a treadmill and a book sounds like a possible trip to the ER. I really have to read the Mortal Instruments, I'm hearing about it everywhere now.

    Have a good weekend and happy reading :-)

  35. Hopping along! Old follower. :)

  36. lol at the treadmill your right it doesnt really work out!
    Jace is so yummy!

  37. Sounds like a neat choice....I don't know those books.

    Hope everyone has a fun hope.

    My answer has three choices - stop by if you like.

  38. TMI!! Awesome choice! I'd totally throw myself at Jace ;) But he'd probably be too busy giving googly eyes to Clary!!

    Here's my Follow Friday & Hop!

  39. Thanks for hopping by my blog! And yes, you totally need to read the Chicagoland Vampire series, it is to die for, ha ha ha. Ok, I thought that was funny ;)

    I haven't read The Mortal Instruments yet, but it seems like I should, right??? Nah, already put it on my TBR list.

    Have a great weekend!

  40. *giggles* Jace must seriously be one happy guy right now. We all love him to bits ;)

  41. Reading while on the treadmill sounds dangerous.

  42. Hi,

    Take care & happy reading,
    Ms. C

  43. Hi, just hopping on by. I tried reading on a treadmill once but it didn't go so well so gave up on that idea! Have a great weekend.

  44. Audiobooks are nice, when your eyes just can't take reading! I sometimes wish i had a private reader who would read me my books whenever i feel like it, an audiobook is like a solution to that!:D
    except i fall asleep listening to them if im not multitasking!
    I haven't heard of the series*blush* will do!
    Have a nice weekend!
    P.S. I m your newest follower!
    my answer this week..

  45. Haha, Jace would be in his element ;)
    I've never really gotten into listening to e-books, but I'm downloading some now to put on my i-pod for when I start running again. The weather is starting to get warmer XD

  46. I love the Mortal Instruments too, and I'd also love to meet Jace, that's be awesome! :L And I never thought about audio books on the treadmill before, I may have to try that! Thanks :D Have a great week!

    My Hop
