The Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books and runs from Friday to Sunday. The Hop is a fantastic way to get your blog noticed, and visit some other blogs that you didn't know about before. Head over and sign up and see what you can find!

Each week a different question will be added to the hop in order for conversations to occur, and for your followers to get to know you better. Here we go!

"What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?"

One thing? I can't narrow it down to just one. So here goes. SIGNED, first edition, UK version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. I have the paperback version (aunt lives in England). SIGNED, first edition, of The Giver by Lois Lowry, and this book shelf to put them on.

Follow Friday is hosted by the lovely Rachel at Parajunkee's View. Here is her question:

If you have, or would have a daughter, what book would you want your daughter to read? 

I have two daughters (14 and 12), and lucky for me, they are both pretty good readers. My oldest is a historical fiction reader, and my younger daughter reads manga and anything Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson author) has touched. Picking one book is hard - Crank by Ellen Hopkins (drugs are bad), and the Bible are a must. Crank tells the story of how a few bad choices can literally ruin your life. Heartbreaking story. Of course we have all heard of the Bible. No matter your religion or upbringing, the Bible is the most influential book in the world. Period. I am not a religious person, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to at least get the basics down. 

I would love to hear your answers. Leave me a comment with your link and I'll find you.
