Happy Friday and the Blog Hops

Book Blogger Hop

Crazy For Books Hop Question:

"Since today is April Fool's Day in the USA, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you?"
Um... I honestly can't remember playing an April Fool's Day prank... there was something in grade 1 involving something from the medicine cabinet on my class room door, but I think that is about it. Lame. I know!

And of course  Follow My Blog Friday hosted by Parajunkee's View

Hmm... Do I have another 5 random book facts about myself:

1. I am addicted to adding items to my library hold list and then get stressed when they all become available at once.
2. I read everywhere, when I'm eating, waiting in line for 2 minutes, I listen to audio books when I'm driving, cooking, cleaning etc. etc. etc.
3. I buy far more books than I have time to read
4. My kids are turning into book-a-holics and I couldn't be happier!
5. I get really excited when I find out my friends also love my favourite authors!

And please don't forget to leave your link and please let me know in the comments if you are a new follower!

  2. @Kathy

  5. Happy Friday! New follower from parajunkee!

  7. I am always falling for my husbands pranks on April 1st! it is now a family joke that I am so gullible.

  8. Heey
    I'm a new follower!! I also keep on buying books and am simply unable to read them all. I think most April Fool's Days are quite boring, because no one really does anything crazy!
    Hop over if you have the time:

  11. @S.J. Wright

    Thanks for visiting and following! Happy weekend.

  12. @bookdout

    Ha bookdout! I'm a tool, I didn't see the new question this week and only realized it once I saw all the new answers.

  13. @Mystica

    Mystica, my husband knows better than to 'prank' me. I always fall for them and then get mad! ; )

    Thanks for visiting.

  14. @Universe in Words

    Thanks for following! There are just too many fabulous books to possibly keep up with them all... but of all that problems that I could have I'm glad that having too many books is one of them!

  15. My practical joke resume is definitely lacking. I don't see this improving in the future...

    Have a great weekend!

  16. Newest follower here via the Friday hop. I'm a new contemporary romance writer and a reader of almost anything! Hope you stop by and check out my blog.

  17. I'm not a prankster at all, but I'm so gullible that I'm often the butt of other people's jokes. Go figure, right?

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!

  18. Not a prankster either, but there are a few good stories that people are sharing.

    Love the background to your blog. Very colorful. Hopping by!

  19. At first I wasn't going to participate in this week's Book Blogger Hop. I'm not even sure why.

    But here I am. And I'm glad! To dispel any false impressions people may have had about me being a old, stodgy fuddy-duddy I'm happy to share some of my very best pranks with you.

    Highlights include - low-grade explosives, eggs and salt shakers. Get all the side-splitting details over on my blog -

    They date back to my younger years as a Brooklyn boy which brings about some introspection.

    I'm going to go pull some pranks today. Look out world! I'm coming out of prankster retirement!
