Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
  3. Put your blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post. This post is for people to find a place to say “hi” in your comments and that they are now following you.
  5. If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friend Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
  6. Follow follow follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don’t just follow; comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don’t say “HI.”
  7. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love…and the followers
  8. If you’re new to the follow Friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

The question for this week is:

We always talk about books that WE want. Let’s turn it on its head.
What books have you given other people lately?

Well, the past LUV’NV-sponsored giveaways were from me. 🙂 If I really want people to read a book, and because I enjoy supporting a little-known author, I usually host a giveaway for it myself. Away from the blog-oriented, I bought my hubs

World World Z

  by Max Brooks and

The Devil in the White City

  and

In the Garden of Beasts

  by Erik Larson. I gave my mom

A Game of Thrones

  (love this series!), and my grandparent-in-laws were recently gifted

Cross Roads

  by Wm. Paul Young. I rarely lend anyone my books, but I gave my only copy of

The Hunger Games

  to my teenage niece to read. I don’t think she ever will, sadly. She’s not a reader; the book was my attempt to persuade her to become one, and I know I’ll never get the book back. 🙁

What about you? What books have you given to other recently?

Let us know in a comment below. We enjoy hearing from you! And feel free to leave us a link to your F&F Friday. We love discovering new blogs. Thanks for stopping by!

Our GFC can be found at the bottom of the blog. We’ve added a Linky, too!
You certainly don’t have to follow, but if you do, be sure to check out our V Follower Appreciation Giveaway.
We’re giving away a $50 gift card and winner’s choice of book here. Both giveaways are open internationally.
Good luck, and happy reading!
