Follow Friday: Stop! Lego Time!

Book Blogger Hop

Welcome, friends and neighbors, to the Friday festivities! Thank you to everyone for stopping by.  If you're an old follower, welcome back! If you're a new follower, welcome for the first time!  As always, thank you to the hostesses with the mostest(es?), Rachel from Parajunkee's View and Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books for these great events!

Have you entered my giveaway for a $40 gift certificate to CSNStores.com? Head on over and enter- name and email will get you in the drawing, which closes on August 20th at 11:59 PM EST.

Are you participating in the Read Your Own Books readathon that starts today? If yes, awesome, me too! If no, why not? The always lovely Monica is hosting and it's a good way to get through books that have been hanging around for awhile. Also, and I am totally stealing this idea from Felicia at Geeky Blogger's Book Blog, I will be donating $5.00 for each book I finish over the course of the readathon to Jumpstart a national nonprofit that pairs college students with preschoolers in low-income communities to help increase school readiness skills and success! I'm free forming it in terms of books I'll read, but I'm shooting for at least 24 hours of reading this weekend across the three days.

I have Marg from Reading Adventures to thank for this first video, which inspired the theme for this week's YouTube extravaganza:

Of course, that little piece of delight reminded me of another of my favorites:

Happy Friday everybody!

Good luck with the Read-A-Thon, Emily. Very good of you to donate to charity.

I'm also in the Read-A-Thon and could use some cheering-on. I'm not going to manage very much, but I aim high.

Happy reading!
