One of the most wonderful parts of blogging is talking books with others.
It can be hard to connect with other bloggers. It was hard for me at first, when I first began blogging, back in 2008.
Memes are linkups of bloggers who post about (basically) the same subject. They are published on a regular basis, and include a linkup of some sort. If a blogger grows weary of a meme, she often passes the meme on to a new blogger.
Ten Good Things on a Monday at Brush Up on Your Reading. Inactive. 10 Good Things on a Monday is a weekly feature dedicated to every person’s compulsive list-writing. Every Monday we are going to make a list of 10 things that will cheer us up and help tide us over the whole week.
Really Random Tuesday at Suko’s Notebook. Sporadic. Appearing on random Tuesdays, Really Random Tuesday is a way to post odds and ends–announcements, musings, quotes, photos–any blogging and book-related things you can think of.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? KidLit at Unleashing Readers and Teach Mentor Texts. Weekly. It is a variation of the meme hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. Kellee Moye of Unleashing Readers and Jen of Teach Mentor Texts invite all who read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – to join them! It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It’s also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…you just might discover the next “must-read” book! Everyone who participates is encouraged to support the blogging community by visiting at least three of the other book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them. If you tweet about your Monday post, tag the tweet with #IMWAYR.

The Out the Comfort Zone Blog Hop at Lucybird’s Book Blog. Inactive. The Out of the Comfort Zone Hop is a new blog hop hosted here at Lucybird’s Book Blog which is designed to help you to look at books outside your comfort zone and to get you to look at blogs you wouldn’t normally look at.

• A theme will be posted each week (on Thursdays)
• Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
• Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
• It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word).
Thursday Tea at Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog. Inactive. To play along, all you need is some tea, a book, and the answers to these questions: what tea are you drinking (and do you like it)? What book are you reading (and do you like it)? Tell us a little about your tea and your book, and whether or not the two go together.

One week might be “catch up on your library books” week and the next might be “redecorate your blog week” or “organize your challenges” week or “catch up on your reviews” week. It’ll be fairly bookblogocentric, but not exclusively.
