Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday and Tag Along - May 27th

Book Blogger Hop
Crazy-For-Books is hosting a Book Blog Party!  If you have a book blog and want to participate click here.

"What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked?  Which have you disliked?"

Our answer:  I think the Harry Potter movies have been my favorite book to movie adaptation in general.  The movies do a great job at following the storyline, and bringing the books ALIVE.  WORST?  I recently read and watched "Eat, Pray, Love" and that was a pretty bad adaptation in my opinion.  I think for people that didn't read the book they might've liked the movie, but I did not like it.  The story got changed and in a way that I didn't think was necessary.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee

The question of the week is:

"How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?"

Usually about a book every other day.  But in general I read two books at a time.  I prefer ebooks (e-readers are wonderful) and one of my two books is usually an audiobook.  I have slowly gotten away from reading paperbacks and hardcovers as they are not as convenient to take around with you.  So I always have my ipod with me with a few books loaded, and my Samsung Galaxy Tablet with a few books loaded.  Never leave home without them!  You never know when a reading moment will pop up!

Photobucket18 and Over Book Bloggers Tag Along is for adult book bloggers to get to know each other and hopefully gain more followers and is hoted by Bitten by Paranormal Romance.

"Do you buy or swap books online, if so whats your favorite place?"

I don't usually use swap sites, although I've started listing some of the books I don't want to keep anymore on the GoodReads swap section.  However, I do buy books online.  It's my preferred method of shopping for books!  The "real books" I buy are usually from Amazon.  I do use the Kindle feature as I have an app in my tablet to read Kindle books.  I also use Diesel EbooksBooks on Board, and Fictionwise for ebooks and Audible and sometimes iTunes for audiobooks.  And does anyone know of a swap site for Canada or UK???

Let’s kick off Memorial Day Weekend with some scandal and controversy.

I absolutely loved every minute of the Lord of the Rings films and felt they hit the mark when they brought Tolkien’s masterpiece to the big screen.
(ducking as rotten tomatoes are thrown at me as the torches are lit and the pitchforks raised)

Wait, wait. I can explain! Hop on over to my blog and hear me out – http://www.howardsherman.net

Sheesh, I can't believe none of our co-bloggers thought of Harry Potter. That's a big duh.
