Crazy-for-books hop Oct 1,2010

Good morning everyone!  It's that time of week again . I love this question for this week .How do I promote
my book blog?  I have to say that Book blogs ning group has been really helpful. I love them to death I feel they are friendly and approachable.  Twitter is tarting to payoff. I had a separate page on  Facebook for my blog before someone hijacked my original account (long story)  I have another one but I just socialize mostly(when I have time which I dont)   I have found so many good books  to read on Good reads.   If I schedule some time to leave some more quality comments that would probably help.  Any who enough blathering I have to get the kids ready for school !

Just hoppin' on by! <3

I'm a new book blogger, so I have no idea what I'm doing. I try to tweet, but I feel like my attempts are so transparent that people KNOW I'm trying to network.

So mostly I just visit other blogs and comment on their reviews or content, and I end up making friends that way. :D

My hop :3

Happy HOP! I love being part of the weekly memes because it gives me the chance to go out visiting in the blogging neighborhood. I get to see everyone and what they're up to and in return they come see me. Best decision i ever made :)

I just joined the Book Blogs Ning, so I haven't seen much activity from it yet. Mostly, my blog promotion comes from commenting on other blogs (and a bit of Twitter).

Oh, I love Good Reads too, and I've found out about Books Blog Ning through this very hop, I'd never heard of it before!!!

I think quality comments are a must to get people to check out your blog.
(well... and by quality, I just mean something that proves you actually bothered to read what the person wrote! I wouldn't call my responses quality at all, LOL!!!)

Check out my Book Blogger Hop, Follow Friday and Giveaway HERE!

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 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…

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
colors

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
warmed
by the life I tried
to live
