The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
It depends on what you mean by “local bookstore.” We have a Barnes and Noble in Johnson City, TN, and of course it has all the new books. If “local bookstore” means a locally owned shop, then the answer is not really. We have a wonderfully old and dusty Moody Bookstore which isn’t even fully lighted and I can wander into darkened shelves and find some interesting old books. I enjoy those expeditions very much.
My second hometown, Bryson City, has a bookstore owned by the local library where they sell extra books and donated books, and proceeds benefit the library. They sometimes have new books. I would like to donate some of my ARCs to them, but they all say “not for resale” so I’m not sure if I can.
Comment below and tell me about your local bookshop.
