Feature & Follow Friday

Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that is designed to provide some much-appreciated exposure to the bloggers participating, and to expand their following. Hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, each of whom feature a chosen blog for the week, it's an interesting way to get to know one another.

Question of the Week: Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

Let's see, 11 shelves, at an average of 37 books each (I pack 'em tight), puts me at about 407 - or, as my wife would more accurately estimate, "too many".

Parajunkee also hosts a Social Hop for Facebook and Twitter, which I've taken part in the past two weeks. So, if you're one of those people who aren't on Blogger, or who just don't like Google Friend Connect, it's a great way to keep in touch and follow one another.

  11. Woohoo! Glad to hear I'm not the only one with such a big pile!

  12. OMG. That is a lot of books! I must say that I envy your room for all those bookshelves! I only have 4 and one I have to keep in my closet since the shelf is a small 3 shelf one. Plus I use my top shelf in my closet to store other books, some are doubles and others are ones that I've read and liked, but had to make room on actual shelves for books I've loved!

    My TBR pile is about three short stacks I keep right next to my shelf near my bed so the books aren't in the walking way!

    Thanks for visiting and following my blog! I follow you now too!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    NEW Follower :D

  20. That's quite a haul all right. After donating most of my high school and college books, I finally have some shelf space and a few slots are left.I think I'll move several of dad's books (mostly work related books that I've borrowed) to the basement. lolz. Followed back.
