Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View. It's a nice way for new people to find your blog. I especially like that Parajunkee has a new featured blog every week.
This week's featured blog is Book Ge3k!
This is my first Friday Follow to participate in and I thank you for stopping by. My blog is still pretty new, it's only been up for 5 months. I'm currently an elementary school librarian at an American curriculum school in Dubai. I'd been thinking about creating a book review blog for about a year, and had no idea that there was a whole book blogger community out there. I'm really enjoying myself.
Question: What is the first book you remember reading?
Argh, this is kind of funny since I'm now a librarian...
I really struggled with learning how to read and hated reading in general. I remember the Dick and Jane books in kindergarten. In first grade my teacher was trying to help me (keeping me in during recess) and we were going through this old book, I think it was called "Bobby Bear Goes To The Moon", or something like that, but I remember the cover very clearly. I got so frustrated that I threw the book across the room. My mom bought a bunch of Hillert books and I hated them. This books are in every school library and to this day I cringe when I have to shelve them. But I remember really liking the pictures in "Come Play With Me" and "What Is It?"
I'd also like to tell you about the TWO giveaways I have coming up. I've got my kids at school all worked up about Rick Riordan's new book, The Lost Hero (set in the Percy Jackson universe), and I've decided to spread the excitement around. From August 31st - October 5th I'll be posting reviews and information on the five Percy Jackson and The Olympians books and holding to separate giveaways.
Giveaway #1 - the complete Percy Jackson and the Olympians series
Giveaway #2 - a pre-order copy of The Lost Hero, book #1 in the new
Heroes of Olympus series.
(Open to US residents only)
There will be two separate entry forms for each contest that will be posted on August 31st!
Thank you and I hope to see you then!!
