Hoppin' Away/Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop

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

I usually have about 3 books on the go but they have to be very different. I can't read a bunch of books from the same genre, or similar story lines at the same time or I'll start transposing plots and characters (ie. 2 Amish fiction or 2 historical fictions from the same time/place). I usually have a hard time deciding what to read so I'll have one book on my bedside table, something downstairs and something on my KOBO for easy travelling!

This weeks question:
How did you come up with your blog name?

When I first started Hands and Home it was primarily a craft/family living blog with a bit of book content in there so Hands (crafting) and Home (family) worked. As this blog evolved the title stuck and here we are.


  1. Makes sense to have the different genres going at once.
    To find out how I got my blog name, find out how many books I read at once and to follow me back (I’m following you now from Follow Friday) check out My Follow Friday post

  2. I'm finding it interesting reading about everyone's preferences for reading. My answer is here My Bookshelf.

  3. Hands and Home sounds cool. I hope you had a nice journey moving from crafting to books. I'm your new follower.

  4. 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

  5. First-time visitor....adorable blog. Love your side panels.

    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.

  6. Hopping through. New follower! I usually read 3 or 4 books too. It can get confusing.
    What's your favorite Amish series?
