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. To learn more about it click on the link in the graphic above.
Question of the Week
My most memorable childhood books are my earliest memories – of Dr. Seuss books, particularly these 3:
Green Eggs and Ham – I remember giggling over this book when my mom would read it to me. I still quote it whenever I am telling someone I don’t like something. “I don’t like green eggs and ham. I do not like them Sam I am.” And sometimes I continue on if I’m feeling particularly obnoxious, “I do not like them in a house. I do not like them with a mouse. I do not like them here nor there. I do not like them anywhere.” Yes, I am THAT person.
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish – I don’t remember why I loved this one but I did. I have vague memories of this being the first book I could read on my own, if so then that would be why. Today, I call Bonefish Grill, “One Fish Two Fish“ because I can never remember its actual name. I even had to Google it for this post.
The Cat in the Hat – This book always confused me. Where did all that pink come from? Why was he smearing it all over the house? And why was he trying to get the kids in trouble? I never understood and I really didn’t like that he was purposely trying to get the kids in trouble. It’s memorable because of this. And, Thing 1 and Thing 2 is something fun to call people.
