Follow Friday&Weekly Blog Hop


Its follow friday once again! As always, this is hosted over at Parajunkee's blog!

This weeks question is:

"How did you come up with your blog name"

I dunno really, I made my blog a long time ago, long before I actually started blogging. But I went through a phase of calling everything 'files' all my documents on my laptop were called 'The college files' or 'The Mouse Files' etc, so it probably came from there.Not very interesting really =/

The weekly blog hop is, as per, hosted over at Crazy for Books and the question for this week is:

"Do you have only one book going at a time, or several at once?"

Well, before I got my kindle, way back when (before last week, haha) I only read one book at a time, and then started another fairly soon after (though most of the time, I was re-reading) but now, I have a couple. I usually have a netgalley book going on my laptop, a 'tired' book which is an easy and old favourite read for when I'm too tired to concentrate on a new book (At the moment I have 2, nightworld: daughters of darkness and the Coven by Cate Tiernan) these are on my kindle, and I just dip in an out of them. And then I'll usually have either a print book or a kindle book on the go too (right now its Once a Witch) Sounds kinda complicated right? But don't worry, I read fast, so it's not really :P Plus the kindle makes reading multiple books super easy *end shameless kindle advertisement*


Apologies for the lack of posts this week, I've been pretty busy campaigning! But later today I'll be posting a guest review of 'The Forest of Hands and Teeth' written by my boyfriend, and that's definitely worth a read!

Happy friday =] as always, comment if you're a new follower so I can follow back!

  2. The explanation of your blog name is interesting...

    You make having a kindle seem so appealing...

    I have to put down books, then start it again. Sometimes becuase I don't like whats happening. Normally because I can't carry the book to school

  5. I think your blog name suits perfectly ;) I'm getting used in reading two or more books at once now :p

    Thank you for dropping by my blog! :)

  6. I love my nook - I can have access to dozens of books at a time, without having to physically lug around (real) copies of books.

    I don't usually re-read books, but I have been lately! I think you're right, when you're tired, it's easier to go back to something familiar.

  7. I like to be able to put all my attention on one book so that's what I do! And since I'm temporarily unemployed and job hunting I can finish books rather quickly! Although it doesn't help that I just keep adding to my TBR pile, including books, Kindle books and NetGalley books!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  10. Thanks for all the blog-name related love guys! I'm glad you all approve!

    @Christy, having an ereader definitely makes it much easier to have a few books on the go at once!

    @Nina, I definitely recommend the kindle, especially because it means you can take more than one book to school-it's perfect! I even get some of my textbooks on mine!

    @Madigan, I can't imagine not re-reading books! But then, I can't afford to buy as many books as I read usually, so I'm used to constantly re-reading. I must've read some books 5-6 times.

    Thanks for all the new follows, I'll be following you all back shortly

  11. Hopping in to say hi and am now following. I am not sure that even if I had a Kindle I would be able to read more than one book at a time. Have a great weekend

  13. I like the Cait Files. I think it's a great twist on a personal name for a blog.

  14. New Follower here!
    I love the Cait Files: it's really original. And I love your blog!
    Kindles make things really easy: I read a book on my kindle because it's easier to take out and about, and a paper/hardcover as well.
    Have a good weekend!

  15. New Follower here. If you have read Nightshade what do you think of the philosophical discussion in the "Big Ideas" class on Hobbes. Must be a really good school!

  16. Thanks once again for the blog-name love and follows! My head is getting VERY big haha.

    @Meg-I love my kindle too, it's so convenient for my bag, cause even in it's case it's the size of a notebook!

    @Steph thanks for stopping by! I haven't read nightshade yet, but you've definitely made me more curious about it! I'll have to start racing through my TBR pile so I can give it a go.

    Have great weekends guys, once again thanks for stopping by and showing love =]

  18. Everyone makes having an e-reader sound so appealing. I don't know if I'd actually read more than one book, but for some reason it sounds so much easier to do on an e-reader. I don't really know why.

    I found your blog through the hop and I'm a new follower. I can't wait to read more of your reviews.

  19. They *are* appealing Najela! Thanks for following, I'm returning the favour as I type :P I dunno what it is about them that makes you read more than one book at a time, but I never did till I got mine.
