Friday Book Blogger Hop, Follow & Tag Along! (5)

This week's featured blogger over at Parajunkie for Follow Friday is

Jackie @ Insane Hussein

Question of the week:

 What is your usual monthly book budget?

Well....I should probably have one but I don't. Though I have been really good lately and have only bought one book in the last 2-3 weeks. Probably because I am re-reading a series I already had which is great cause I am ba-roke. For reals. LoL I do plan on going to the book store this weekend though, eek. I have been known to spend $60+ in one visit. 

What about you guys out there? Do you have a monthly book budget? 

Book Blogger Hop & Crazy-for-Books question comes from Christina who blogs at All About YA Books:
"If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title?"

Yes, I do. I have to know everything that is going on, start to finish, I can't just hop into it in the middle. And I'm the same way with TV shows too, which is probably why I rarely watch TV. And I even made a rule with our book club that if someone wants to pick a book that is part of a series it needs to be the first one. 

Do you feel the same or can you just pick up a book in the middle of a series? If so, I bet that saves a ton of money on some series! LoL

I love doing Laurie's (BittenbyParanormalRomance) 18+ Tag Along every week and seeing new blogs join in, so much fun. Laurie also has a Christmas giveaway going on you need to check out! Go HERE

And while you're here at RBtWBC you may want to check out my giveaway for a signed copy of Jane and the Damned by Janet Mullany. I will also be posting a Christmas giveaway later on today so check back for that, it will be fab I promise!
EDIT: Here it is! Win a SIGNED copy of Jeaniene Frost's Eternal Kiss of Darkness & a book mark HERE

  7. Hi Crystal! Happy Friday.

    I'm doing all three of the Friday blog run. I don't limit myself to budget with books. I just love to read and write so that line is always doable for me. And Yes, I love start a series at the 1st book.

  8. Hey! I'm your newest follower; just stopping by on the hop to wish you a great weekend!

  11. Hi Crystal!
    I hear you... I have been very brave in November though and I´ve started to save money, but only so I can go to Book Expo America in 2011 :)
    The Night Huntress series is totally awesome! I´m also waiting impatiently for the new book!
    Have a great weekend!
