About the Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer's permission, I relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on 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 your own blog. 

Weekly Questions:  If you have a question, fill out the Form. Each blogger with a selected question will get credit during that week's hop. Remember to keep the questions & answers G-rated for younger bloggers.

  13. I notice you havent got a question listed for 2-7 January 2015. I would like to ask "Do you delete old posts on your blog? How old ? What type(s)?"
    I saw someone post about this last year and it had never occurred to me to do so.
