Book Blogger Hop June 1st - June 7th: There Were Four Classical Elements Until Aristotle Came Along

Book Blogger Hop

Jen at Crazy for Books has restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them. A complete explanation of the history and the rules of the Hop can be found here.

This week Jen asks: BEA Edition – What upcoming releases are you most looking forward to?

I have no idea. Maybe this makes me a lousy book blogger, but I really have no idea what books are schedule to be published in the future. Even when I am a fan of an active ongoing series, such as Naomi Novik's Tremeraire books, I don't actually pay enough attention to know when a new book is coming out. This isn't really unique to books for me though, despite the massive advertising campaigns that movie studios and television networks engage in I usually only have the vaguest idea which movies and programs are due to be released in the near future. Prehaps it is because I have such a huge backlog of books to read and things to watch already. perhaps it is just that I am not very attentive about such things. But the end result is the same: I don't have a clue what releases are upcoming, which pretty much precludes me from looking forward to any particular ones.

  1. I am you're opposite. I am always anticipating what new releases are coming out in both books and movies. I love checking out people's Waiting on Wednesday posts as well looking up trailers for up and coming movies. At least you never have to suffer the wait though if you're reading and watching things that are already out :).

  2. @Sandy: That may be true, but conversely I often find myself reviewing and commenting on books and about authors that a decent chunk of the people who stop by here say they have never heard of. So it is a mixed blessing.
