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:
- 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.
- Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Hazy Reads and The Boundless Booklist.
- Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
- 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.
- 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".
- If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
- If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
- If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
There were several books that I was assigned in school that I loved. Leaving aside Paradise Lost and the Canterbury Tales, both of which I only read excerpts of in school, I first encountered Heart of Darkness as a school assignment. I was assigned no fewer than three books by William Faulkner in high school: As I Lay Dying, Light in August, and The Sound and the Fury. I loved them all. I also read my first Hemingway in school - it was A Farewell to Arms. I first read The Confessions of Nat Turner as a school assignment. I read Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead as a school assignment, although that's a play and some people might not count that as a "book". I will note that those people are wrong.
The thing is, I probably fell in love with most of the books I read for school. I loved Beowulf. I loved Of Arms and Men. I loved Not Either an Experimental Doll. I loved A Dry White Season. I loved The Mask of Command. I loved Freedom and the Law. I loved Bargaining with the State. I loved Order without Law. Pretty much all a class has to do is hand me a book as an assignment and I'll be a happy camper. Or at least a happy reader.
