Friday Hop & Follow

      This week has been an absolute whirlwind. I've been so neglectful of this little blog, but I haven't had anything to review really, and most of my spare time has been basically birthday present shopping and combing the internet for textbooks. Those of you out there who are students probably sympathize with just how tedious the process can be.

 Don't forget to enter to win my 100 Follower Giveaway!!!! 
    It's time for Crazy For Book's Book Blogger Hop. This week's question is:

Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?
As you can see, I have an eyeglass rating system. I am kind of proud of it since I created it myself and I had no previous experience doing anything with manipulating graphics. Eventually I'll have someone make a prettier version. As to why eyeglasses, well I wanted something that is a bit different and also that represents me. I'm a library student and I have librarian glasses, so Voila!

It's also Friday Follow day over at Parajunkee's View.
This week she is featuring Manda @ Book Ge3K. I'm glad to have found Manda because I really enjoy her review style.

This week's question at the follow is:

My question for you guys, what is the first book that you remember reading?

 The first book I remember reading is the actual book I first learned to read. In a People House by Dr. Seuss. I would read it every night and eventually read it to my brother when he was a baby. 

    What about you?

I like your glasses rating system. I also need to create something that reflects me!

Hi Jenn! I'm a new follower from the hop. I love your eyeglass review system! It's super cute! I wear glasses myself, so maybe that's why I like it so much, but regardless of that, it's a lovely rating system.

Have a lovely weekend!

Hi, I am new to your blog from the Hop! I think your glasses rating graphic is very clever. To find out what I think about rating the books I read, please stop by my blog.
