Friday Book Hop and Over 40's hop! :)

It's Friday!!! Yay!
Not that the weekend is really any different for a stay at home mum but I do get everyone at home for the weekend.......mmmmm, so that means they are under my feet whilst I do my housework, shopping etc....

Book Blogger Hop

Jennifer says...

BBH turned 1 year old on March 5! I can't believe this book party has been going strong for over a year now! Thank you all so much for making this meme such a huge success! So, let's party a little extra hard this weekend to celebrate such a huge accomplishment! The Book Blogger community ROCKS!

"Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?"

I am a one at a time gal when it comes to books. 

If I am struggling with a book I may put is aside, read another book and come back to it.  That is why my Goodreads or sidebar may show more than one book.

So, I could say that I sometimes have more than on book on the go.

How about you?

Java says......Are you a blogger over 40? Yeah, welcome to the club!

Please join in the fun and get to know your fellow bloggers!!

If you are new here, please take a look around and  leave me a comment and I will come to visit you.



  1. Dizzy: I've been following you for a long time but I just made it official. Thanks for stopping by my blog!


  2. I usually stick with reading one at a time too. :)

    Happy friday!

  3. Hi BookBelle,
    good to see you again and have you onboard :)
    enjoy ur weekend

    HI Christy,
    I like to get into the setting and feel like I was there, cannot be in two places at once :)


  4. So....I could have all kinds of fun with a comment like....

    "I am a one at a time gal when it comes to books."

    But I won't


  5. Hopping by to say hi. I'm a one book at a time too. Have a great weekend!!

  6. One fiction and one non-fiction is the most I can do at a time!
    Happy Friday!

  7. I like concentrating on one book at a time too!

  8. Hi~!
    I'm a new follower :)

    I usually read one book at a time, even tho my goodreads sidebar shows more (that just means there in queue^^)

    Here's my blog:

  9. I only read one book at a time too. My Goodreads or Shelfari show more than one because I queue my books so I know what I'm going to read next, lol. :)

  10. Since I got my Kindle, I read a K. book at bedtime, and a print book downstairs. And boy am I ever over 40. ;<)
    PS I don't 'follow' - I just keep several blog lists on my blog and I visit them whenever I can.

  11. Dizzy,
    I love your blog :) thank you for the kind words you said about my blog :) I am now following you

    hugs n blessings

  12. New follower! Like you, i typically read only one book at a time :) its much easier that way! Stop by and follow back if you have time!

  13. Not everyone can multi-task and nobody should. When it comes to book sure, I can't read four books simultaneously (or even two, for that matter!) but there are times I'll juggle as many as four books at a time depending on the subject matter, the urgency or more often both.

    The real trick to this is what KINDS of books to juggle. Hop on over to my blog and learn the method behind my madness - http://www.howardshermannet

  14. I am amazed at how many people read more than one book at at time.

    Stop by my blog for a giveaway of LINEN QUEEN courtesy of Sarah from Hachette Books and to see my answer to this week's Blog Hop question.

  15. One book at a time for me and lately the only book I care to read has been the Bible

    Take care Dizzy C and have a great weekend :-)


  16. Hopping through. I usually read multiple books. I get bored too easily.

  17. Hi,

    Hopping through and now following, too! You have a great blog - I'm so looking forward to reading your posts :) We seem to have similar reading tendencies, too. I'm almost always a one-book-at-a-time kind of girl.

    Take care & happy reading,
    Ms C

  18. Donna,
    I get the drift :)
    You are such fun.

    you have a good weekend too. See u Sunday for the next Shining Star.

    enjoy ur weekend too

    good to see you. I say I cannot be in two places (books) at one time


  19. Evie,
    good to see you. on my way over :)

    Me too, it looks impressive having more than on on the sidebar :)

    good to see you. I have yet to get drawn in by the ereaders. I still love to hold a book

    I love these hops for finding lovely blogs to follow


  20. Diana,
    good to see you, am on my way over.

    yes, some books are for skimming (info books etc) but some we should just be able to savour

    The Linen Queen looks fab.

    Of course, goes without saying, a very good book to read.
    Enjoy ur weekend

    My head is too Dizzy to take in more than one book at a time. :)
