Crazy-for-books the blogs I follow

It's that time of the week again dont forget to check out my giveaway(She's gone country by Jane Porter)
I have 3 copies to giveaway and deadline is this Sunday
also you can post links to your giveaways in the post below this one
Now back to the question at hand
blogs I follow well in all it's over 30 if you look at my dashboard. but being a parent of 3 kids (2 of which has special needs ) doesn't leave me with alot of time to visit each and everyone
I try to visit the ones in my sidebar because I can get a quick glance as to what's going on with everyone else
It depends since school starts for us Monday It will give me some time to visit more but I prefer to leave a good quality comment on a few blogs then a whole bunch of so-so comments on a lot of blogs.
So which do you prefer ? Quality or quantity?   Do you make time to visit every blog you follow?
I would love to get your feed back on this
and stay tuned  for the winners of the giveaway Monday

Hopping by via the hop.

I have started visiting a few blogs each day and I find that is helping keep my google reader manageable and it also gets me to actually visit different blogs every day!

Happy Friday!
Always With a Book

Just popping in via the hop to say hi! I prefer quality vs. quantity in followers, I think we all enjoy having meaningful comments from people who enjoyed the post:) That being said, I also think quantity plays a part when speaking with publishers, so it's a little bit of both for me. Hopefully my followers follow due to quality:)

Hi, visiting from the HOP. I do try to check the blogs I follow every day, but I don't actually read every post - I try to comment on the ones that I select to read that day and try to catch up on the addition to the BLOG HOP.

I know what you mean about children taking up time - I had four children and I don't think I read five books other than children's books when they were little. The oldest is now 31 and the youngest is 20! So I read a lot now when not at work.

Hope you can hop by for a visit at LibraryCats Books.

Have a great weekend.

The Speed of Belief by Tracy K Smith (poem)

I didn't want to wait on my knees
In a room made quiet by waiting. A room where we'd listen for the rise
Of breath, the burble in his throat. I didn't want the orchids or the trays
Of food meant to fortify that silence, Or to pray for him to stay or to go then
Finally toward that ecstatic light I didn't want to believe
What we believe in those rooms: That we are blessed, letting go,
Letting someone, anyone, Drag open the drapes and heave us Bak into our blinding, bright lives When your own sweet father died You woke before first light And ate half a plate of eggs and grits, And Drank a glass of milk. After  you'd left, I sat in your place And finished  the toast bits with jam And the cold eggs, the thick bacon Flanged in fat , savoring the taste. Then I slept, too young to know how narrow And grave the road before you seemed--- All the houses zipped tight , the night's Few clouds muddy as cold coffee. You stayed gone a week, and who were we Without your clean p…

Poem: In Texas Grass by Quincy Troupe

All along the rail
                                road tracks of texas
                               old train cars lay
                               rusted &overturned
                              like new african governments
                             long forgotten by the people
                              who built & rode them
                                till they couldn't run no more,
                              they remind me of old race horses
                             who've been put out to pasture
                            amongst the weeds
                            rain sleet &snow
                            till they die,rot away
                            like photos fading
                           in grandma's picture book,
                         of old black men in mississippi/texas
                         who sit on dilapidated porches,
                        that fall away
                       like dead man'…

The Life I led by Nikki Giovanni (poem)

i know my upper arms will grow
flabby it's true
of all the women in my family
i know that the purple views
like dead fish in Seine
will dot my legs one day
and my hands will wither while
my hair turns grayish white I know that
one day my teeth will move when
my lips smile
and a flutter of hair will appear
below my nose I hope
my skin doesn't change to those blotchy

i want my menses to be undifficult
i'd  very much prefer staying firm and slim
to grow old like a vintage wine fermenting
in old wooden vats with style
i'd like to be exquisite  I think

i will look forward to grandchildren
and my flowers  all my knickknacks in their places
and that quiet of the bombs not falling on Cambodia
settling  over my sagging breasts

i hope my shoulder finds a head that needs nestling
and my feet find a footstool after a good soaking
with Epsom salts

i hope I die
by the life I tried
to live
