Follow Friday - Botswana Is the Setting for the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency Series, and Is 145th in World Population

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 - Tween 2 Teen Books and Literary Chameleon.
  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: Find a “new to you blogger” and feature their button on your post this week. Tell us why this blogger stands out to you.

Because the blogger was supposed to be someone new to me, I more or less chose at random. I chose Redhead Reader because I like redheads and liked the name. The blog is written by Massachusetts native Elizabeth Stiert, who happens to be a redhead who loves reading (I know, that's a surprise isn't it). I admire her eclectic reading list, which seems to include selections from every genre except romance, and her desire to become a published author herself, which is an aspiration that I can relate to. I am also happy to note that her list of bookish pet peeves is very similar to mine, although given that it is fifth on her list, her hatred of stickers on books is probably not quite as intense as mine.

    1. @Karina Romano: I'm not sure if it really is her blog button - when I was perusing her blog I couldn't find an actual button, so I used what I could find that was the closest approximation. I agree that it is cute though.

  2. That's great that she got to be published. And omg stickers on books ugh!! I hate them, seriously. There's no need for stickers on my books. Lol. Anyways... I'm a new GFC follower and I'll check out the Readhead Reader she sounds cool.

    1. @Midnight Fantasies: I don't think she has actually been published, she just says she aspires to be published. And yes, stickers on books are evil.

  3. Stickers on books?! Who does that?! That's defiling.

    New GFC follower. Come say hi!

    1. @Holly Harris: Far too many book stores seem to think that putting stickers on books is a good thing to do. They are wrong.

  4. I just started following her this weekend - found her through FF and the Book blogger Love-a-Thon! :)
