TGIF is hosted by Ginger at Greads! This week's discussion is about
Book Blogger Retreat
If you could gather up a handful of book blogger friends to spend a weekend away talking books, where would you go? Tell us about it.
But if that doesn't count because 1) I'd like to spend more than a weekend there, and 2) I'm not sure how much we'd be able to chat about books, I would choose Paris. They have some of the sweetest little book shops in that city, filled with those amazing smells of old, well-worn and well-loved books that any reader loves. We'd get one of those quaint little townhouses that overlook cafes and the streets and spend the day drinking cafe and eating croissants, then spend the night on the balcony, sipping wine and eating baguettes + fromage under the stars. I think it'd be the perfect backdrop to a bookish trip. (And I'll be honest, it'd give me reason to go back to Paris.)

Where would you go for a book blogger retreat?
Leave me your link and I'll come check it out!
Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee's View, meant to spotlight two blogs and allows bloggers to link up and meet other fabulous bookish friends and share the Following love!
This week's spotlight blogs are: Alluring Reads & Justin's Book Blog (who is one of my favourites actually!)
And the question of the week is:
Do you read one book at a time or do you switch back and forth between two or more?
Definitely a multi-book girl here. As you can see by my Currently Reading in the sidebar (conveniently there on your right! ----->), I've got 4 books going on right now. I don't know why I do it, but ever since I was little I've always read more than one at the same time. It was mostly because I'd read one, then when I needed to put it down and take a break, I'd just pick up another.
Usually I try to keep it down to 3 books at once, but ever since I started the book blog and took on reviewing books and ARC/galley copies, it's upped to 4 or 5 at once. I don't have problems reading that many at once, I never get confused; but eventually I start to feel stretched too thin and finish all of them up in a day. Which actually really explains how sometimes I have 4+ reviews scheduled to go up on the blog; and other days I'm scrambling for content.
How many books do you read at once?
Leave me your link and I'll hop by!
And of course I'd love to return a follow if you are kind enough to follow me :)
