Weekly Geeks #1

I'm a bit late getting around to the first task for the Weekly Geeks: find at least 5 new blogs from the list of participants. BTW, is it cheating that some of my 'new finds' actually found me first? (It's my fault for being so behind this week!) But after they stopped by, of course I had to return the visit and found some great blogs in the process.

So here are some of the blogs that caught my eye and have been added to my Google Reader (like I really needed more blogs to follow!):

Florinda at The 3 R's: Reading, 'Riting, and Randomness
I'd seen her around but never visited before but I'm so glad she stopped by mine. Like the name says, her blog is full of all kinds of fun and interesting posts to read.

Teddy Rose at So Many Precious Books, So Little Time
A book challenge addict and she's from Vancouver! It's like a slice of home (ok not exactly but let's not get technical)!

Maree at just add books
I love her sense of humour plus it's nice to find someone else that is losing their mind! ;)

Samantha at Bookworms and Tea Lovers
The name of her blog is what caught my eye because I am definitely both a bookworm and a tea lover. And really, what better combination is there than books and tea?

GretchenA at Scarlet's Letters
Another one-book-at-a-time reader, plus we seem to share some favourite authors.

Aaron at That's the Book!
Bybee has mentioned him but I finally stopped by for a visit. I enjoyed his recent posts about Mein Kampf and wikipedia in book form so I'll be back for more.

Erin at A Book Every Day
She had me when she said "A bookcase should never be empty!"

There are of course many on the list that aren't actually new to me but that I haven't been visiting very much lately. Work and sleep and all those other things have been keeping me away from the computer and eating up my time. I haven't forgotten any of them and hope to 'catch up' one of these days.

  1. Thanks for the mention, and your blog is in my Google Reader now too. I think this particular Weekly Geeks challenge may have been a little dangerous for us blogophiles. :-)

  3. Florinda- I agree, this first Weekly Geeks challenge was bad for finding more blogs I just have to read! :)
