Book Blogger Hop Plus Book Beginnings and the Friday 56 - Old Haunts
Today I'm participating in 3 linkups! The first is the Book Blogger Hop hosted by the Coffee Addicted Writer. Today's question is:
When you view someone's profile what information do you like to see?
I've never really thought about it before but I always check the About Me section or the Blogger profile when I start to follow a new blog. I like to see where people live. Partly due to book availability. I follow several blogs that are in the UK and sometimes they'll be raving about a particular book that unfortunately isn't available in the US. If I know where they are I can be prepared. I also like to see other interests or favorite genres so I know how well are tastes line up. If I'm looking at a Blogger profile I want to be able to easily figure out which blog is the active one. I've been to profiles that have about 9 blogs listed but none as the actual website.

Rose City Reader and Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is the 3rd book in the Haunted Guesthouse series - Old Haunts by E.J. Copperman. This is a mystery series where guesthouse owner Allison gets help solving mysteries by her two resident ghosts.
Here's the beginning:
"Careful!" I said. All right, shouted. "We can't afford to drop this."
It wasn't so much that the sheet of wallboard Maxie, Paul and I were holding up was so expensive it couldn't be replaced; it was more that hauling another heavy sheet up here in the attic of my massive Victorian home and guesthouse would be enormously difficult."
And from page 56:
"I haven't found out much yet," I told my client. "Big Bob was dead almost two years, and nobody ever even reported him missing to the cops." I let the question go unasked.
So what do you think? Would you keep reading? I didn't find either of these excerpts particularly grabbing but I've enjoyed the first 2 books in the series so I'm looking forward to reading more of it.
