BOOK BLOGGER HOP (02) AND FOLLOW FRIDAY (02)


        Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted at Crazy For Books that enable bloggers to interact with one another and discover new blogs. Every week there's a question to be answer and this week's question is:

"If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title?"

         Definitely I will start with the first book. It's kind of confusing to read a book in a series not in order. It will definitely ruin my reading experience. And it will give me spoilers which is not to be reveal before I start to  read the first book. 



        Follow Friday is a weekly Meme hosted by Parajunkee . The sole purpose of this meme is to let bloggers interact with one another and gain followers by following one another and meet new friends in the blogosphere. I haven't done meme's for quite sometime now, so here's my second time to join again. Today's question is:

What is your usual monthly book budget?


     I don't usually put a budget for my book hobby, as long as I have an extra money for that month that I could spend for book then I go. Usually I save a budget that can go for 1 or 2 books and I could buy more books if I could find a good read at Book Sale. Books here in the Philippines tends to be very expensive so sometimes if I'm low on budget I go to Book Sale to look for a great book that I could buy for a cheaper prize.

Hi there! Just hoppin' on by. <3 I'm an old follower! :D Did I ever mention that you look exactly like my cousin? ARE YOU MELANIE?! Lol just kidding.

My book budget is $0! I'm a poor college student, so I only borrow books from the library or read in Barnes and Noble while hogging their air conditioning. :)

Kristina @ Frazzled Book Nommer. Have a good weekend! <3

I can dive right into the middle of a book series if the series' story
doesn't run chronologically.

That is to say, if each novel in a series is a stand-alone story (like Lee
Child's Reacher novels) then I don't feel the need to start with book one.

On the other hand, a series of books (like Richard Hatch's Battlestar
Galactica novels) can't be read out of sequence since each new book builds
upon the story of the previous entry in the series.

Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!

Hi,
I'm here on the Follow Friday Tour. Sometimes I'll read a book I'm attracted to that's in the middle of a series and then go back and read the series from the beginning. Not counting that, I probably read a series from the beginning most often. AND, I have no book budget.

Come visit my blog if you get the chance and see how I get my books: http://bookendcrossing.blogspot.com/2010/11/friday-43-days-to-christmas-omg.html

Have a great weekend!

Hopping through and now following you!

I try not to read a book series out of order, but I've accidentally does so in the past. Thankfully, those books could stand alone.

I don't really have a book budget either. I go to bookstores about every other weekend, and I either buy a full-price book or several books on sale.

So glad to have found you via the Hop and the FF. I love that there are so many Filipino book bloggers. I was a Rotex there in high school and have lots of fond memories of your beautiful islands!
