Follow Friday - 17 U.S.C. § 106 Protects Exclusive Rights in Copyright

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 - Beauty but a Funny Girl and I'll Tumble for YA.
  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: Is there a song that reminds you of a book? Or vice versa? What is the song and the book?

I think this may be cheating a little bit, but the song I most associate with a particular book is The Greatest Adventure by Glenn Yarbrough, which I always think of in conjunction with the book The Hobbit. This is probably because the particular song was used as the theme song for the Rankin-Bass animated version of  the book.

When I first saw the Rankin-Bass version, I had not finished reading The Hobbit, and this was the first time I had seen any illustrations of Tolkien's world. As a result, this vision of Middle-Earth is what I first think of when I read any of the books. And as a result, this song is what runs through my head when I follow Bilbo on his adventures.

  1. To be perfectly honest I have little interest in the new version of The Hobbit. I love the animated version!

    1. Peter Jackson's version is overly long and bloated. And it still has two more installments left. Jackson has made a very pretty rendition, but somehow the Rankin-Bass animated version managed to capture the essence of Middle-Earth more effectively in their visuals.

  2. Hi. Great Choice. Big Hobbit fan here.

    New Follower here. Have followed you on all your networks.

    1. Thanks Linsey, I'm a big fan of The Hobbit as well. Actually, I'm a big fan of Tolkien's work in general (which should be easy to figure out from the stuff I've posted over the last couple years).
