Book Blogger Hop: 3/4-3/7 & The Friday 56 – Week 18

Book Blogger Hop In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list below!!


1. Enter your book blog link in the Linky List in the main host page
2. Post about the Hop on your blog. In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!).
3. Visit other blogs in the Linky List!

“Who’s your all-time favorite book villain?”

The first one that comes to my mind is Niks Erik Bjurman” from “The girl who played with fire”. Bjurman is Salander’s legal guardian who sexually abused her long back and she takes her sweet revenge on him by tattooing him in an awkward spot. The character is portrayed as a person who wants to get back to her but isn’t very smart. He definitely feels trapped by Salander’s smartness (lets say!).

Friday 56 This is another fun meme.

Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s voice.

The rules as stated are:

* Grab a book, any book.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find any sentence that grabs you.
* Post it.
* Link it here.

My Friday 56 is from “So Cold the River” by Michael Koryta

Then the whistle split the air again and he looked up at the boxcars whirling by and saw that the train was colorless, all shades of black and gray except for one white car with a splash of red in the Pluto Water logo.

If you are here; don’t forget to take a at the Theme Thursdays meme. This runs from one Thursday to the next…

    Thanks for visiting Proud Book Nerd!

  2. It’s a shame the train was so colorless after the whistle made him look at it.

    Here’s my 56: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2011/03/friday-56.html

  3. Oh, great villain! I’m going to have to post my Blogger Hop.

    Love the p. 56, too, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. I never even thought about that creep – i would go with Peter Teleborian for keep all the pictures of child porn and messing with her mind all those years.

    Quite a gripping sentence from your choice of Friday 56!

  5. Great 56! Looks like a decent read!
    Thanks for participating!
