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.
What is your favorite memory surrounding books?
(submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)
My favorite memory surrounding a book is when my sweet grandmother gave me her beloved copy of Pride and Prejudice. I was only 12 or 13, but I could tell how much it meant to her. After I read it, we had a lovely conversation about the story. This was the first time I bonded with anyone over a book and how extra special that it was my grandmother.
She gave me more Victorian classics over the years, and we would talk about them after I read them, but there was something about that first book that was extra special. She passed away almost ten years ago, but I will always have the memories of our shared love of Victorian literature and what it meant to me to bond over those stories. ❤️❤️❤️
