Follow Friday - In Roman Numerals, 159 Is CLIX

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 - Except that this week there are no featured bloggers, because the selected bloggers apparently didn't respond to either Rachel or Alison.
  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: Have you ever convinced someone to read a book, a series, or a whole genre? What book(s) and who was it? Did they like it?

I have. More than once. I have convinced people to read Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games series, David Brin's Uplift War series, Heinlein's juvenile novels, J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Michael Moorcock's Chronicles of Corum, and several others. Some people liked my recommendations, others not so much.

  1. Our book club encourages reading just about EVERYTHING! We vote on monthly group reads to discuss. Sometimes we hate 'em; sometimes we love 'em. The most important thing is to have fun, right?

    I agree. Everyone should read LOTR!

    1. @Amber Lovell Boone: As it is a foundational work of modern fantasy literature, I consider The Lord of the Rings to be essential reading for any genre fan.

  2. Good suggestions. I'm an existing follower on Bloglovin'.

  3. The Lord of the Rings is definitely something I have at least subconsciously suggested to friends by never shutting up about it! I'd like to take credit for my sister loving The Hunger Games but I think it's largely due to Jennifer Lawrence! I'm an old GFC and Bloglovin' follower! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you had a great weekend!

    1. @Juli Rahel: The other day some friends of mine were looking at my shelf and commenting on just how many books by or about Tolkien I had there, so I completely understand where you are coming from.
