Blog Hop: Favorite Thing About Blogging & TGIF: School Books

August 24, 2012 Blog Hop, Meme 24

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy-For-Books.

Blogging Question: What is your favorite thing about blogging?

My favorite thing about blogging is meeting and getting to know other bloggers (either in real life or just online).  I’ve met so many awesome people since I’ve started my blog and developed some good friendships.  I love bonding with people over books. 

PhotobucketTGIF is a weekly meme to re-cap the week’s posts & to propose a question for our followers. It is run by Ginger at GReads.

Back to School Reading: Which books would you like to see in today’s high school Literature classrooms?

Before I list any books I just want to say that one of the things I disliked most about my literature classes in school was that we only read “classic” books and while they are classic for a reason they are not always relevant in todays society. I definitely don’t think we should stop reading “classics” but I think there needs to be a mix of current and classic books.
 
Two books that I think should be read in high school are Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Help (but please don’t stop reading To Kill a Mockingbird)

    Same here, I started off documenting my thoughts but I can’t help but immerse myself in the bookish love shared by everyone in the blogging community!! Interacting with others have taught me many valuable lessons, and I’d love to meet other readers :D

    I would love to someday actually meet my online book buddies in real life.

    I understand your feelings about reading classic books in high school. I was fortunate enough to be in Puente and AP English where we read a variety of books along with the classics.

    Here’s my Friday Hops.

    I’m an old follower :D

    I’ve never read Perks of Being A Wallflower but I have wanted to for years. I was hoping I would be able to during this years “banned book week” but now I just don’t know if I’ll have time. Someday I will read it though.

    And the Help too! because I bought that book back in like 2010 or so and I still haven’t read it.

    I definitely agree–all the book blogger friends I’ve made have been the best part about blogging! And I agree about the school reading–a mix of classics and current books would be great, and would probably get more kids into reading!
