Hopping Away and Follow Friday!

A Very big Welcome

Welcome to any visitors who got here through the weekly Book Hop (a Book Party) organised by Jennifer @ Crazy for Books or Follow A Book Blog Friday hosted by Parajunkee's View so that book bloggers can share their blog with other book lovers and also find new blogs to 'follow.' To get involved all you have to do is post your blog link at the bottom of the 'linky list' on Crazy For Books and/or Parajunkee's View, answer the weekly question (for the hop) on your blog and get hopping around!

This weeks Book Hop question/topic is: "What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?"

Hmmm, just one? I think I would have to go with  something similar to Jennifer- a whole room in my house just filled with books along with comfy chairs to sink into and lots of fluffy blankets and pillows as well as a smoothie machine! Then again, I also like the idea of owning a first edition copy or manuscript of a Jane Austen novel.

Parajunkee's qustion: If you have, or would have a daughter, what book would you want your daughter to read?

I love this question, there are so many books I would want her to read. I'd introduce her to all the Enid Blyton books starting off with the Faraway tree ad moving on to all the adventure and boarding school series like Malory Towers. The Chalet School by Elinor M Brent Dyer and Anne of Green Gables are a must too. I have collections of all these books that I cherish so I hope to be able to pass them on one day.

Don't forget to leave a link to your blog in a comment so I can check it out, I will try my best to reply :D

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!


  1. Enid Blyton was one of my favourites as a child [oh, and The Tiger Who Came To Tea ;)]!

  2. Oooop, published it without finishing it. Also meant to say:
    Great answers ;D

  3. I used to read Enid Blyton when i was younger! I had many of her books^^

    And i believe i would like that library you described as well. Haha..

  4. Hopping by...follower. This is the 3rd time I've read Anne of Green Gables in an answer. Funny!

    Hope you come by and see my answer!

    Happy Friday!

    ohh that's an interesting answer to the Hop question. I do believe the P & P by Jane Austen does go on auction at Southby's today? (the first copy I think)

    I like the smoothie machine idea...although for me I'd rather go for slurpee machine instead ;)

  6. Hi Stephanie!

    Would love an Ipad and the books are Nancy Drew and Trixie Beldon series!

  8. Oooooh a first edition of a Jane Austen novel - good idea!! I also want a really awesome library, although instead of a smoothie machine I would have some kind of fancy coffee machine that makes mochas with whipped cream and yummy toppings :D

    Great book choices for your future daughter (although I haven't read most of those Enid Blyton books but I'm sure they are fabulous!)

  9. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has saved all my favorite book from childhood in hopes of being able to pass them on!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Following you!
