Book Lovers Blog Hop (9/3/2011)

What is a blog hop?
A blog hop is a linky list that is SHARED ON MULTIPLE BLOGS. When several blogs put the same linky list code on their blog, the exact same list appears on each blog.

Blog visitors can submit their entries on any blog that contains the list. The entries will appear on each blog where the list resides.

Blog readers see the same list on each blog, and can "HOP" from blog to blog seeing the same list of links to follow: BLOG HOP!

  1. I have put the Book Lovers Blog Hop logo on my HOOK KIDS on READING:

    The WOI World of Ink Tour button was WAY too long to fit on my Margot's Magic Carpet side bar. I cut it to half size, but then the print did not show well. Sorry.

  2. I've posted the banner in the sidebar.

  3. Posted on the booksnatchers sidebar as well.

  4. The first banner is in my blog sidebar. I'll have to remember to add the other one.

  5. Virginia,
    Thought you would need to know that I've changed the title of Deb's Book Reviews to Deb's Book Nook. The address is the same:

  6. VS,

    Should the banner link back to this page? If so, it isn't and it is confusing to those who click through who want to win a book.
