Book Blogger Hop!

Book Blogger Hop

It's time for another Book Blogger Hop! This is a great event hosted by Crazy for Books and designed to connect book bloggers. I haven't participated in the Hop in a few weeks but I thought I'd jump back in today. The question for this week is:

"Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her."

I'm in the middle of reading Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything by Josh Foer. It's a memoir, so the main character is the author. He is a journalist who covers the U.S. Memory Championship one year, meeting some of the participants and learning a bit about what they do. Then he decides to enter the next year's championship himself. I haven't learned a lot about Josh, except to know he considers himself a bit of a geek and is very interested in science. I also know he does end up winning the championship ~ they tell you that up front. It's an interesting book so far.

While you're hopping by, be sure to sign up to win a copy of the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid book. I'm hosting a giveaway through Monday evening. Click here to enter!


  1. I've been wanting to read Moonwalking with Einstein! It's nice to see some science non-fiction books featured. I'm thinking of recommending this book to my science book club (I know, I'm such a geek).

    Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend. :)

  2. I'm introducing four young men from the books I'm currently reading. Come see who they are. Happy blog hop.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
