Follow Friday



We haven't participated in Parajunkee's Friday Follow before. Naturally I pick the week to join in that the question is "Who do you cheer for?"

And the answer to that would be, "Ummmm, cheer? Isn't that something associated with sports?" Sorry, but the last time I did something like that was my first year of high school, when I joined the official school-club-for-cheering-for-the-school-sports-teams club. My mother bought the sweater and wool miniskirt (which were very expensive) after I promised 17 different ways that I would stay with it, honest, Mom, I will! I lasted through one football game. I have never been so bored in my life. Sports and I - not a couple.

Just a few words to introduce us (if you're thinking of following, it's good to know what you'd be following, right?) We are Cannwin and Jennifer, two sisters who love music and books. This blog is about the ways we put music and books together - the soundtracks that we find and make for the books we like.

Head over to Parajunkee if you want to participate in the Friday Follow! She's got a great blog, so check it out while you're there; also check out this week's featured blogger for Follow Friday, Logan E. Turner.

Friday Wishlist

This week I've been thinking about Robin McKinley's Pegasus, which has been checked out at our library since it came out. I can wait until it's finally my turn, or I can go ahead and buy it. I'm so very, very tempted to go out and buy it. I love Robin McKinley, and this book sounds like everything I like best about her books - a strong female lead, adventure, and the importance of friendship and staying true to who you really are.

Do you have a book you wish you could get your hands on? Share with us what it is!

Hi there! Thanks for the follow! Following back.

Right now I'm waiting for Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr, which I put on hold last week and it still hasn't arrived at my branch. Jerks! :P

I am hopping by from Follow Friday. In terms of sports, I like the Carolina Hurricanes (hockey). My faves are Ward, Staal, Rutuu, Skinner and Sutter. In terms of book boys: Edward, Stefan, Peeta, Ash and LucI’m following you and would love it if you follow me back! Brandi from Blkosiner’s Book Blog

Howard Sherman said...

Who do I cheer for? When I follow sports at all (and that hasn’t been much lately) I follow people and teams who impress and inspire me.

My answers are all over the map (literally!) but all perfectly understandable once explained. Follow me over to my blog and read all about it -

Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

New follower. Love to read book reviews and commentary, so I'm obviously looking forward to following your blog.

Aaron (Dreaming About Other Worlds).

Cari Hislop said...

I love to cheer on anyone reaching for their dreams! (it's sickly, but true). Just recently I found the most fantastic website Kickstarter.com
if you love helping make people's creative dreams come true, this site is for you. If I was rich I'd go on there every day and just play fairy god mother, but I'm weird that way.

A book I want to get my hands on...hmmmm?...I'd have to choose:

Through the Language Glass: Why the World Looks Different in Other Languages by Guy Deutscher

Finally there are some second hand copies I can afford...I'd love to get my hands on one.
