Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday - March 11, 2011

It's been a while since I've participated in a BBH or FF...maybe a month or so? This is mostly due to the fact that I've been so busy as to not have time to visit all the other hopping blogs to see what's goin' on in their worlds. :o) I try to take a few minutes to read some posts and whatnot, which when added up takes the. whole. weekend. It's so much fun, but you've got to have the time to do it! :o)
But anyway. I ramble. This week on the FF hop, the Featured blogger is Ashley from Bookaholic Does Blogging.

Q. Just like Ashley said (love it) "Ashley the girl..." who are You the Boy/Girl, instead of You the Blogger?
Alisha the girl. Well, when I'm not being a book lover, I'm being a word lover, teaching English and editing materials for others. I'm currently kickin' it abroad short-term with my husband, and am (very) slowly learning how to speak German. Crafting is my other love: crochet, knitting, jewelry-making...I love them all.
Gah! That's it. I look forward to reading other responses because it's always nice to know a bit about the person behind the books. ^_^
The Book Blogger Hop's question this week is the kind of question I often use for daydreaming. ^_^

Book Blogger Hop
"If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?"
To be completely honest, if I were given some mad money to spend on books, I'd make selections not in my usual group. That means cookbooks!!
....can you tell that I love sweet treats? ^_^
So there you have it. If you're participating in this week's hops, I look forward to stopping by your place and reading your own answers! Schoenes Wochenende!
