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: Happy Father's Day! Who is your favorite dad character in a book and why?

Since we're talking books I'll take a pass at the obvious - Darth Vader - and go with the dad who not only sticks best in my mind, but who always reminds me of my dad. I'm going with Calvin's dad from Calvin and Hobbes.

Parajunkee also hosts a Social Hop for Facebook and Twitter, which I regularly take part in. 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: Most Valuable Book: From your personal collection of books, which ones hold the most value to you - is it signed by the author? or maybe it's your favorite story of all time? Share it with us.

No question - I have to go with my signed hardcopy edition of The Essential Clive Barker.


  1. Darth Vader, that's funny. Daddy issues always make for good characters...probably. It worked for Luke I guess. New follower!

  2. That was one of my go to comics in the paper. Darth Vader works too :)

  3. I'm pretty sure you could have found a Star Wars book and gone with Darth Vader anyway!

    I've never actually seen the comic before though!

    Happy Friday!

  10. Hi! I went brain dead in trying to answer this ? But I finally did and the answer is on my blogspot.
    I am now following you through GFC as lucyatmax. Please return the follow at:

  11. *cracks up* Now Calvin's dad I didn't see coming! My mom has two books worth of the comics, and I always got a laugh out of the shizz Calvin's dad would say! EXCELLENT pick! XD

  12. New follower here! Great post. I’m following you through GFC, Networked Blogs, and Linky Tools. You can return the favour over at my blog :)

  13. You got me. I cannot sat in haste who my favorite father character is from a book not what my favorite book is. Wait, would Ward Cleaver count from "Leave It to Beaver?"

    That dude rarely became angry and even when he did it was like he was sedated with 10 mg of Valium. So cool, calm and reasonable. lol
