TGIF - 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: Activity!!! Take a picture or describe where you love to read the most...

Right here - down by the water (beneath the Whirlpool Aero Car, along the Niagara River), without another soul in sight.

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.


TGIF is another blog hop designed to provide much-appreciated exposure to the bloggers participating, and to expand their following. Hosted by GReads, it's an interesting way to recap the week, pose a question, and find some exposure with a different audience.

Question of the Week: Required Reading: Which book from your school days  do you remember reading & enjoying? Is there a book published now  that you'd like to see in today's curriculum for kids?

To be honest, I don't remember too many 'required' reads from my school days that I enjoyed, but I would advise my children to take a chance, think for themselves, and pick something off the ALA list of banned/challenged books - maybe Harry Potter, The Golden CompassThe Handmaid’s Tale, or Fahrenheit 451.


  1. Okay - where the heck do you live? Gorgeous! If I lived there, I'd never leave the beach - just a book in one hand and a drink in the other.

  15. Hi! Love the pic. Required reading - MacBeth! Hands down. Also, I would not admit it at the time, but I liked when we had to read Longfellow aloud. I like the sing songi-ness.

  16. Fantastic picture!
    Like you book choices. Harry Potter and Fahrenheit 451 would be great 'required' books!

  22. I think it's wonderful that you'd encourage your children to try out some of the books that people attempted to ban. It could inspire some seriously fun discussions with them!
