Book blogger Hop, stop the presses and new flash

Time to join Jennifer at Crazy for Books and her Book Blogger Hop! Join with us for a chance to meet new people and blogs and have fun at the same time! Meme runs from Friday through Monday.

This weeks question come from Tina at Book Couture: How do you spread the word about your blog?

My answer: When I started blogging I wasn't sure how to go about building a readership. I thought maybe following blogs might make a difference and it did but I have to say things really didn't heat up until I participated in the Book Blogger Hop. This meme and others like it enable you to discover other like minded people and therefore expand your readership as well.

You can now add Mini Shopaholic to your library as the latest installment to the brilliant Shopaholic series! I can't wait to read it, can you?
Clicke HERE to read the first chapter!

Here is my opinion of the difference in book covers for Mini Shopaholic...

UK cover - so cute and makes me want to buy it and crack the book open immediately!

US cover - a bit of a letdown, nonetheless, I will buy this book despite its lackluster cover because I love Sophie Kinsella's books!

    I never really had much luck with networking until I found the blog hop, but it was more exciting for me because I'd been looking for one for ages! I didn't know how to search on blogger, and stumbled across it randomly which made my life, pretty much lol. Anyway thanks for visiting my blog. I'm an old follower. Have a great week!
