Feature and Follow #8 & Book Blogger Hop #9

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

Feature and Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read

General rules to Feature & Follow Friday:

1. Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts and any one else you want to follow on the list
2. Follow our Featured Bloggers (This week is Booksane)

3. 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"

4. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers

This Week's Question: 

Tell us at least one new or unusual thing you’ve done in 2013.

The newest thing I've done in 2013...I got a job! I also started blogging and moved to a new city. This was a year of change for me. 
I would love followers on GFC, NetworkedBlogs and ->Follow on Bloglovin

                                              Book Blogger Hop
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer

Now, for Book Blogger Hop

Q:  What book would you recommend for a Christmas present?

A: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I can't think of a better Christmas book.

Attn plz: My birthday is on Dec 20th so I am planning a two-week hop titled "Mary's Merry Christmas and Birthday Giveaway Hop!" 

I'm asking 20-25 blogs to participate. Each is expected to donate $5 in contribution to the grand prize of the new Kindle Paperwhite. If more blogs join, there will be extra giveaways.

 Each will have the post up on Dec 20th even if it's not the top post. And they will have the hop button displayed in a noticeable area on their blog for the duration of the blog hop. Please input your blog name in the linky on my blog's Giveaway page and email me with your blog's Facebook, Twitter, and/or other preferred methods of following. I will then make the blog hop and rafflecopter link and send them out by Dec 13th so there will be a week's preparation time in getting the post up. 

This will be a scavenger type blog hop where a word will be given to be hidden in each post for one entry on rafflecopter. ^_^

  3. I loved A Christmas Carol, and just reviewed the new book, The Christmas Carol 2: The Return Of Scrooge by Robert J. Elisberg. Have you read it?

    Wow! Lots of "new" for you in 2013!

  4. Christmas Carol is a great story! I love it and it's a perfect story for all ages.

  5. Hey there, I haven't participated with last week's FF. I got so busy that I haven't found time to write an FF post. And we're the same, I also started blogging this 2013. xD And I also discovered new hobbies in addition to blogging.

    Thanks for stopping by Thoughts and Pens.
