Male Book Bloggers? and a Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt!

So for part of this evening I have looked at other blogs about books and reading. What I found is that a ton of them are out there, and the majority are written by women! It also appears that they do a lot of communicating between each other (something that us guys don’t do all that well. So my questions is – Are there any male book bloggers out there??? And then if there are, say hi and let’s talk!! Whatcha’ been reading??……

I also saw several interesting book reading challenges that are part of the Bout of Books 12. The one that kicked off Bout of Books 12 was from Caught Read Handed and was a bookshelf scavenger hunt. The instructions are to……

Find a book with the following criteria on a bookshelf:

1. Find an author with the same initials as you
2. Find a book with the color yellow on it
3. Find an author’s name with the letter “S” in it
4. Find a book with a female protagonist
5. Find the longest book you own
6. Find a book with a map in it or on it
7. Find a book with a face on it (photograph or illustrated)
Bonus: Find something on your shelf that isn’t a book.

While I am not actively a participant in the Bout of Books  12, I did scour my bookshelves trying to find the above items. Here’s what I found…..

1. I couldn’t find any authors with both my initials E K . I did find some Evans and  Ethan Black, and Karin Fossum and Karin Slaughter and Janet Evanovich but no EKs

    Great finds! I’ve never heard of Dana Stabenow, but is that crime fiction? Cover looks like it! Thanks for playing along. 🙂
