The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!
How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!
What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today? Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and ayou must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to Wordpress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don't have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.
Question of the Week: Before blogging (dark times people!) how would you find out about new books or did you? - Suggested byA Great Read
First Feature and Follow, I'm actually quite excited!
Before I started blogging I found books the old fashioned way-- browsing the shelves at the library and reading whatever seemed appealing to me. My school library has this thing where they "showcase" new releases, or books that just came in, or extremely popular books, along the lines of TFIOS and Divergent, and more often than not I found some pretty amazing stuff.
That was up until recently, where I picked up this blog again and started anew. Now I follow all theses brilliant people, and I'm finding suggestions left and right, which is greatness, if you ask me. And I've recently discovered Goodreads (probably a bit late, i know) and now its my go-to source for getting a general idea for what books are like, which is ALWAYS helpful. What about you? How did you find books in the dark times?
