'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Feature and Follow #1

So I've found another new meme to take part in, Feature and Follow hosted over at Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The aim of the blog is to gain new followers! :)

How to participate:

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

What sets this Hop apart from others, is the Feature. Each week they will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow the Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy.

                         Featured Blog: The Bookshelf Review


What would you do over if you were to start your blog again from scratch?

Errrm, I'm not too sure to be honest. I've only had this blog for just over two months so I'm still in the learning process, though I do wish that I knew how to make my own blogger template. This one from Lee-Lou blogs is lovely :).

If you are a new follower, please let me know so that I can follow you back :)

  2. I totally agree. I've only had my blog for a little less than three months so it's hard to say. So far, I wouldn't change a thing! It's been so much fun!
