Follow Friday (30)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison at Alison Can Read. If you want to participate, it's easy. To learn more and enter, check out: Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Join the fun and make some new friends!

Q: Keeping with the Spirit of Giving this season, what book do you think EVERYONE should read and if you could, you would buy it for all of your family and friends?

Well, to make a theme of it, I’d have to say “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens. And if I could, I’d make sure to buy real nice, fancy special collectors’ editions. :P
In all seriousness, if you haven’t read it, no matter what time of year it is, you should. It’s a beloved gothic classic not to be missed. It’s really the only Dickens novel I ever could get into. Haha.

Oh, oh, oh…. And Shakespeare! I definitely think everyone should read Shakespeare and if I could, I would buy a ton of it for my family and friends. *dorks out*

Happy Friday!



  1. I don't think anyone could disagree with A Christmas Carol, it's a classic. Great choice!

    My Follow Friday!

  2. Hopping through. I've always meant to read The Christmas Carol. I love the movie adaptations.

  5. I promised a couple of fellow book bloggers I wouldn’t “machine gun” my Follow Friday posts on the blogs I visit but this week’s Follow Friday has inspired me to make an important exception.

    The book I think everyone should read is a work of non-fiction called The Four Hour Workweek. The thing is, the book is very well written and entertaining so it reads like a work of fiction. What the book can do to enhance your life and change the way you live day by day seems unbelievable on its face which might mark it a legitimate work of fiction for the skeptics out there.

    If you read this work of non-fiction and really follow the advice it gives and apply the insights you’ll gain, your life will read like a modern tale fairytale.

    I encourage, implore and even insist you follow me back to my book blog so you can find out why I think EVERYONE should read The Four Hour Workweek –
