Book Blogger Hop: December 18th – 24th

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly hop hosted by Rambling of a Coffee Addicted Writer.

What to do:

1. This week’s question is submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews!
Which format do you use? Blogger, Word Press, or an independent format? Any reason for your choice?

I use but I have thought of moving to an independent format for more variety and choices. limits a lot of things that you can put on your blog. I also have a Blogger account but haven’t really set it up as I use and bloglovin.

2. Enter the link to your post in the linky list (enter your Blog Name and the direct link to your post answering this week’s question. Failure to do so will result in removal of your link).

3. Visit other blogs in the list and comment on their posts. Try to spend some time on the blogs reading other posts and possible become a new follower. The purpose of the hop 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.

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? – Suggested by Not Tonight I’m Reading.

That’s an easy one I absolutely love Breyers Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough.


Another is from Dairy Queen and that is a Cookie Jar Blizzard. It has chunks of oreo and, of course, cookie dough!

The Murders in the Rue Morgue  by Edgar Allan Poe


The mental features discoursed of as the analytical, ARE, in themselves, but little susceptible of analysis. We appreciate them only in their effects. We know of them, among other things, that they ARE always to their possessor, when inordinately possessed, a source of the liveliest enjoyment. As the strong man exults in his physical ability, delighting in such exercises as call his muscles into action, so glories the analyst in that moral activity which disentangles. He derives pleasure from even the most trivial occupations bringing his talent into play. He is fond of enigmas, of conundrums, of hieroglyphics; exhibiting in his solutions of each a degree of acumen which appears to the ordinary apprehension præternatural. His results, brought about by the very soul and essence of method, have, in truth, the whole air of intuition.
