#FridayReads and Follow Friday

Hello everyone,
Happy Friday! We decided to combine #FridayReads and Follow Friday together again this week. This is what we are reading this weekend:

Leslie didn't get to do much reading this week because she's busy doing her summer homework for AP Lit. She's still reading Sarah Dessen's The Moon and More  Here's a teaser from chapter 17 where Leslie is currently on:
"It was a good thing I was still half-asleep, not to mention coughing too hard to be expected to explain, because I was busted."
As for Michelle, she's reading the novella Uncharted by Tracey Garvis-Graves, which is a follow-up to the fantastic On the Island (btw, it's the perfect summer read).

Here's a bit of happy domesticity with Anna and T.J. from chapter 1 of the e-ARC edition:
"What's it going to be? Caillou or Dragon Tales?" T.J. asks the twins.

"Dragon Tales," they shout.

"One episode and then it's bedtime, okay?"

"Okay," they say, and then run out of the room.

"I'll turn on the DVR for them," Anna says. She stops in front of T.J. on her way out the kitchen. "I'm going to lay this one down in her crib. She's about to fall asleep."

The baby smiles, eyes heavy, and T.J. kisses her. "Night night, baby. Sleep tight."
If guys are interested in Uncharted or The Moon and More, just click on the links and you'll be taken to Goodreads.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The goal of this meme is to increase blog followers and make friends and we are all about both. For complete rules on how to participate, click here.

The Feature and Follow question this week is What is your preferred reading format? Hardcover, eBooks, paperback etc?

I like physical books (hardcover or paperback, it doesn't matter--whichever is cheaper is the one I'd buy and read) and e-books equally.
I prefer reading a hardcover book over a paperback--it feels better in my hands. No e-books for me. I've never read an e-book and I'm not planning to read one any time soon.

  1. Good answers. Can't wait to read a Sarah Dessen book too :)

    Happy weekend!



  2. I love paperbacks, especially hardcovers but since a couple of years I entered the ebook world - even if I do not like reading them as much as I love printed words. As I said in my answer is a necessity for being an Italian blogger, as not all authors are willing to send me a physical copy of their book.

    Happy reading!

  3. I usually go for what's cheaper, too!

    And while I love eBooks it's nice to see holdouts!

    Have a great weekend! :)

  13. I agree hardcovers just feel better to hold. Though sometimes they can be heavy to hold and carry around so that's when ebooks come in handy.

  14. I was like that Leslie - I said I would never read eBooks, but then there were all these books on Amazon that weren't available as printed books, so I caved. And now I love eBooks (but never as much as a physical copy!)

    Thanks for the follow - following back :)

  15. Really, no eBooks? I read on there because it's so convenient!!

    Thanx for visiting my FF!
