Book Blogger Hop - Which book would you like to be in?

From the Crazy-For-Books web page "the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book blogger and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book blogger to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list below!!

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun! This is a weekly event! And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added!"

There are a few rules!
1. Enter your blog address at the linky list on the Crazy-For-Books website
2. Post about the hop on your blog & answer the question on the Crazy-For-Books website
3. Visit other blogs in the linky list

This weeks question is:

"If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?"

I think the answer to this week's question would be the Elm Creek Quilters series by Jennifer Chiaverini. I LOVE this series! This is a series that has grown and evolved. You don't have to start at the beginning of the series and read in order. The storyline is though continuous, although there are books that focus on past events. They come highly recommended!

They are not simply about quilting, they also reflect the lives of individuals and the characters become old friends as they develop and grow. They are essentially about a fictional group of women who meet and form a bond through their love and passion for quilting. The essence is something that is replicated by women (and men) the world over about a whole host of things.

  5. Apologies in advance for my answer this week as it will not immediately resonate with the book blogger population which happens to be 99.5% female.

    My choice is a book series geared towards guys which won’t enthrall the vast majority of my fellow book bloggers (who are almost entirely female) with the extensive discussion of powerful weapons and sexy milspec gear, beautiful women, eye-popping action sequences (with occasionally obscene violence), and the like.

    But there IS something in my answer that just about everyone of the female persuasion can benefit from my decidedly “books for guys” post. Hop on over to http://www.howardsherman.net to find out what it is.

    Happy Hop Friday!

  6. Just hopping by. I've never read this series, but it reminds me of the film "How to Make An American Quilt." I love the idea of the women coming together, making something together, and the stories that are woven into the quilt. It's a great metaphor.
