Book Blogger Hop: Bonjour!

Book Blogger Hop





I'm back at the Hop for the first time since March.
I'm trying Follow Friday and for the first time.
I will be visiting a lot of book blogs today!

Let me introduce myself for those who have not met me.

Bonjour! Enchanté!  I am debnance at readerbuzz.
I spent seventeen days in France this summer and
I feel like I am a new person.
Je suis nouveau.

So what do I like to read?  I want to read
the best books. I like books that surprise me.
I like books with wonderful vocabularies. I like books
 that make me think.
 I like books that reveal the world to me.
 J'aime les bons livres.


love to read children's books, travel narratives,
literary fiction, spiritual books,
books about happiness, history books, cookbooks,
books about education, and creative nonfiction.
never read genre fiction or
nonfiction that reads like a textbook.
Befriend me at Goodreads.
Follow me at Twitter.
 Befriend me at Facebook

Please say hello here. I will also seek you out. I will add you to my Reader and/or Follow you.


The question of the week: Do you listen to music when you read?
If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?
I have been listening to French music for months. Pandora is my favorite spot.
I have a station there named La Vie en Rose. Join me, if you like.
Oh, and I love to listen to SportsRadio610 in Houston.
Listen from 2-7 pm CST and you might hear my son, Ben Nance.

  4. Hi, just blog hopping through. Happy Friday!
    I listen to music mostly when I write, not when I’m reading. I listen to Celtic and Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Best,

  8. Blog hopping, here. I do like it quiet when I read, although it doesn't necessarily have to be silent. I can read in public, at the beach, on an airplane, in a waiting room. But the quieter the better. Putting you on my blog roll.

  31. I like some music while I read. When I listen to music I get wrapped up in it, and it's the same with a book. Sometimes my attention is divided if I try to do both. Love your header!! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  33. I am visiting (and following now!) your blog. Looking forward to reading more.

    I am new to blogging and love YA and kids lit. You can find my blog at http://evergreenjuniorhighlibrary.blogspot.com

    I don't listen to music while reading, but I do watch television. Probably because I have a TV addiction in addition to a mad craziness for books :)
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Happy Friday. Come see how I listen to music when I read.

  35. 17 days in France. I just may die of envy. What an amazing experience that must have been! I can't imagine how you come down off that high and go back to a normal life, but I hope the rest of your summer isn't too dull in comparison!
    Found you on the hop,
    Dianne

  48. Thanks for stopping by The Prairie Library yesterday! My mom loves French "cafe" music. She plays it a lot when I'm home. It's fun. I hardly ever use online radios. My husband is very into music so we have a huge selection at home. So, I tend to not listen to the radio very often. But I suspect online radios offer a greater variety. Anywho, have a great weekend!

  53. I like Pandora too. Especially at work when I'm doing paperwork. I find the silence to be suffocating. I discovered your blog via the Hop!

    ReplyDelete
  54. J'adore lire aussi. C'est fantastique car les mots dans un livre fait vibrer l'ame au complet.

    Thanks for visiting and will tag you for my list too. Don't mind me while I take a twirl around :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'll have to take a look at that 1001 children's book list and see if I can start that! It looks like a definite challenge. The 1001 (adult I guess) list is so daunting!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thanks for stopping by our book blog. Hope you check out our others too! (The links are listed in the right sidebar.) I see we have a lot in common--all except for the traveling.

  78. Hi Readerbuzz,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I went to Paris, France a couple of years ago and absolutely loved it! I really want to go back and spent a few more days there. Where did you go in France?

    I'm now a new follower. Can't wait to read your review on The Three Muskateers. I loved that book. Happy Reading!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Returning the Hop! I've never been to France - kinda hard when I've never left the country - but I'm glad you enjoyed it. Pandora is pretty awesome, though it's a shame they've had to add commercials. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete

  81. Thank you, aloi! It has been a lovely, busy week here at my blog. Lots of new followers. Thank you all for coming here (or, as we say in Texas, Thank, y'all!)

    I learned some French before I went to France this summer and now I'm working on Spanish. Au revoir and adios!

  82. Thanks so much for hopping by. I really need to work on my French for my history masters degree and it would make reading Quebec records a lot easier!
