If Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop ever had a baby...


Follow Friday is a weekly event hosted by Parajunkie's View
This week's question is...

How did you come up with your blog name?

It actually started on goodreads. I kept seeing my friend Emily adding books to her currently-reading shelf and finishing them the same day. After a while, in my usual crazy/random fashion, I tweeted her something like "What do you do with your books? DO YOU EAT THEM???" and she replied "YES, I DO. AND YOU EAT THEM WITH ME" (I'm keeping the caps-lock to stay as authentic as possible :p). Ever since, whenever we email each other about books we talk about eating them somewhere along the line.

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a meme hosted by Crazy for Books every friday.
This week's question:

Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?


I can't. I tried several times to read more than one book at a time and my brain just doesn't work that way. If I put a book down and don't pick it back up as soon as I get the chance, it means I'm not captivated by it and I'll eventually put it on the dreaded on-hold shelf. 

Happy friday!

Hopping by!

I can understand only wanting to read one book at a time, although that's not how I approach my reading :-).

So, does that mean that your 'on-hold' shelf means that the book won't be picked up again?

I guess my version of that shelf would me my Kindle archive - if I just can't get into the story, I delete the book and it goes back to my archive.

Here's my Book Blogger Hop: 3/18-3/21 post!

Stopping by on the Hop. I love your blog's name. I've also added you to my following queue. I miss being able to read one book at a time. Hopefully I can revert back to those days soon. It would be nice to not have to compartmentalize every single thing I read. Have a great weekend and happy reading.

I eat books too which is why my blog ended up with the name Eating YA Books, but the name actually came from a quote by A.S. W. Rosenbach.

Coming through on the blog hop.

I have no problem reading two books at a time though it does not happen often. I generally like to finish one and then start another

Love the story about your blog name. I have recently joined Goodreads and I'm ashamed to admit that I am utterly lost.

Anyways, new follower here.

Haha. Love the story. :-)
Following too!

Yes I read more than one at a time. Come see why. Happy blog hop.

Justine said...

Haha, aw you and your friend are pretty awesome. I love you blog name :)

And I totally agree with you on the reading one book at a time thing. If I read more than one book, I'll end up preferring one more than the other, and that's just not how I roll! Happy Friday! :D
