Follow Friday and Haiku Poll

Q. Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her.

A. I have a group of friends that I talk about books with. In fact, almost all my friends love to read. They all have similar tastes to me, albeit some of them are slightly more critical of the books then I am. I refer books to them and they refer books to me. We can get onto the topic of books and stay there quite a while!

Please leave a link so I can check you out!

In other News....

My April Haiku Contest is going into phase two as of today. The chance for submitting is over unfortunately, but now we all get to vote, the poll is on the top right of the page! You can refer to the April Haiku Contest page if you wish, but I figured it would be easier if I just set up all of the entries right here for you to vote on, so here we go!
