Follow Friday - "68 Publishers" Was an Outlet for Exiled Czech and Slovak Authors


It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
  2. Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Books Are My Reality and Concise Book Reviews.
  3. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
  5. 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".
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
And now for the Follow Friday Question: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

My first choice would be Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard. There was just something about having Hamlet told from the perspective of two interchangeable characters who are casually condemned to an off-stage death while musing on the nature of free will and reality that fascinated my teenage mind. However, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is a play, and not a novel, so that may not be exactly what the question is after. If I am looking at novels that I read for school, I suppose I would say that my favorite would be As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner. I loved the rotating narrator and the glimpse into the competing motivations the various characters had for making the journey to deliver their dead mother to her resting place.

  2. @Dawn & Winnie Book Reviews: I go through too many books to have any one be my "Summer read". My current read is Mariner Valley by James Crawford, but I'll probably finish that later today.

  4. @Concise Reviews by Michelle: Stoppard's play is quite good. If you don't want to read it, and can't see a live version, a movie version was made, which was pretty good, but it leaves out a couple portions of the play for some reason.

    Everyone should read at least one Faulkner book in their lifetime. I am partial to As I Lay Dying, but Light in August was also quite good.
