That time has come around again. Happy April Fools’ Day and welcome to the Fool for Books Giveaway Hop, hosted by BookHounds.
I have always been a fool for books. Exactly which books has changed over the years, but I have always loved losing myself in a good book. Or sometimes even a bad book! I suspect that most of us who either read or write book blogs have experienced that sensation over and over again, the one where the world around us completely disappears and we enter the world of the book we are reading. Sometimes only to emerge after the last page is turned, wishing that we didn’t have to ever leave.
And sometimes reaching for the next book in a series, because we can’t stand not knowing what happens next to people that we have come to know and love (or hate, as the case may be).
So what books are you a fool for?
I am always a fool for fantasy and science fiction. I got hooked on The Lord of the Rings when I was in 3rd or 4th grade, and have never looked back. My love of sci-fi came a little later. Star Trek went into syndication when I was in 8th grade, and I fell in love with that exploration of “strange new worlds and … new civilizations.” I’m still a sucker for space opera.
I read a lot, and I read some of most everything, with a couple of exceptions. But those are my first loves, and I go back to them whenever I want to get lost in a new world, or whenever I need to escape from this one.
What are your reading loves?
The winner of this giveaway will get something to sate that love, at least a little bit. The prize is either a $10 Amazon or B&N Gift Card, or a book from The Book Depository, up to $10 in value.
