Book Blogger Hop July 25th - July 31st: The Sum of the Faces, Edges, and Vertices of an Icosahedron Is 62. Roll a d20.

Book Blogger Hop

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. 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.

This week Elizabeth of Silver's Reviews asks (via Billy): Do you like to read books with a theme such as Halloween, Christmas, etc?

As a general rule, no. I don't dislike holiday themed stories per se, its just that I have already read or seen a number of them such as Halloween Tree, White Christmas, and Connie Willis' almost obligatory annual Christmas-themed science fiction story and in my experience, once you have read stories like those, very few other stories do much more than simply tread through already well-trodden ground. Plus, there is always the danger that a Christmas story will be a cloying piece of maudlin treacle like Zanna's Gift, and that sort of story is simply painful to read.
