(Blog) Hop To It

Book Blogger Hop

I was having a few issues with internet this last week (ie: not having internet at home at all) and so wasn't able to hop last Friday. Thankfully the lovely internet man came and worked his magic and we're back online now.

If you don't know about it, the Friday Blog Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books. The hop helps book bloggers connect with other bloggers or discover great new blogs. It also helps bring new followers to your own blog. Win-win! Head over and sign up.

Each week there is a question that goes along with the hop that each blogger answers on their own blog.
This week's question is:


Moby Dick (Oxford World's Classics)This week is the last week of the Moby Dick challenge I've been taking part in. I only have 100 pages left to go and I couldn't be happier about it. The book started out good but went downhill quick. I'm just beyond ready to be done. No offense to those of you who are a fan, but I'm just finding it boring, boring, boring! I have learned a lot about whales, like everything humanly possible about whales. So, at least there's that. It hasn't been a total wash.

by A.S. Byatt The Children's Book [DECKLE EDGE] 1 editionThe other book I'm reading is The Children's Book by A.S. Byatt. I just started two days ago and I'm only 150 pages in. So far it's been really interesting. It starts out with two boys looking around a museum when they find another young boy wandering around drawing. They follow him and find out he's been living there in the recesses of the museum. One of the boys introduces him to his mother who decides to take him home and let him stay with her family for awhile. The family seems really fun, loving and sweet but it seems that all is not as it appears. We'll see.

 Happy Hopping!

I ADORED the Children's Book, even though it gets off to a slow start. If you've made it through the first 100 pages, I hope you'll love the rest of it!

You're doing good Rachel. Just remember, the whale did it. Before you know it you'll be on to a better book.

I know my mind is in the gutter, but I like how you referred to him as "the lovely internet man".
