Book Blogger Hop August 18th - August 24th: According to Ken Burns, There Are 216 Stitches on a Baseball

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 Billy asks: When you enter an unfamiliar house or apartment for the first time, do you feel disappointed if you don't see any bookshelves, or books on the coffee table?

I have to admit that I judge people based upon how many books they have in their homes. If someone has no books in their home, then I seriously have to question whether I can be friends with them. I consider books to be so essential that if someone doesn't have any, then I really don't think I could possibly have anything in common with them. I simply cannot comprehend how someone could live in a house devoid of books.

I also judge people based upon what kind of books they have, but that's another story for another time.

  1. I always hope someone has books that I like so we can become friends and share. :)

    It is sad to not see books, but I figure that person has other interests.

    ENJOY your week, and Happy Hopping!!

    1. @Elizabeth: I would have a hard time being friends with someone who didn't have books. Fortunately, I don't seem to cross paths with such people very often in my social circles, and when I do they have turned out to be problematic in other ways, so it hasn't been an issue I've really had to deal with as of yet.
