Feature and Follow by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read Books vs E-Readers





How does the Feature and Follow work?

First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today? Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and ayou must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy.

How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to WordPress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don’t have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.


To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
  3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say “hi” in your comments and that they are now following you.
  5. If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
  6. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don’t just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don’t say “HI”
  7. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love…and the followers
  8. If you’re new to the Follow Friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!


A Writer’s Dark Corner


  1. When did you start blogging?
    I started blogging on 1 September 2013. I wanted to start a simple blog with book reviews. My first post was Stephen King’s “Salem’s Lot” Review.
  2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?
    My favorite part of book blogging is being part of something. Nothing makes you feel happy than talking with people, whom you share the same passions with. I love getting feedback from bloggers, and I love giving feedback.
  3. What type of books do you mainly blog about?
    I am a huge horror fan, and I blog mostly about horror books. But I also try to fit in some YA, thriller, or fantasy books to tone down the macabre a bit.
  4. What are your favorite books?
    My favorite book of all the time is definitely “Dracula”. I may have read it thousands of times, and I know some paragraphs by heart. I simply love this book. I recommend it to everyone.
  5. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
    Book Blogging has nourished my love for books, and literature. I have a weird taste of books. The books I read, no one else around me does. Having people come to your blog, and comment something like “I love this book too!”, that gives you a wonderful fee;ing. I think that this blogging community is the best thing that happened to me because of book blogging.

Hard print (real thing) or Kindle/Nook, which is your favorite?

– Suggested by The Realm of Books

I enjoy reading on my e-reader or tablet, for many reasons.

  1. It’s convenient when I’m reading a book in a waiting room, and don’t want others seeing the scandalous book I’m reading. There’s no better way to get some weird looks then to read a book title that makes most people blush.
  2. When I’m in bed or in a comfortable position, I don’t have to figure out where my book is going to go, and how I’m going to hold it for maximum comfort. I simply get cozy and with just a flick of a finger, I can turn my page without strain.
  3. I enjoy being able to highlight words I don’t know and have them instantly defined for me. When reading a paperback, I have to get out a dictionary or my phone, and that’s taking away my precious reading time.
  4. I never lose my place with multiple bookmarks that don’t fall out like they sometimes do in paperbacks.
  5. I can highlight and take notes within the e-reader or tablet, which cuts back on my post-it fund, which I have to say has been quite pricy at times.
  6. I can carry all my books with me at all times. You know, for those times when you just can’t decide on what to read, but don’t need a suitcase full of books with you at all times.

What I love about books

  1. I love the smell of a good book in my hands. I would wear this as a perfume if I could. I’d call it Sexy Library.
  2. I don’t need a plug or a charger to read. A book will never run out of battery juice.
  3. I grew up with books, when e-readers weren’t around. They’re comforting, and I basically collect them.
  4. I do love those post-it notes, despite the convenience of taking notes on an e-reader.
  5. My favorite authors can sign a paperback books. Chance are you don’t want them signing your e-reader or tablet.
  6. Nothing is more exciting/sad then getting to the end of a book, and feeling that there are just pages left until the story ends.
So, what do you think about books vs e-readers.
