Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Billy over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. This week's question was submitted by Elizabeth over at Silver's Reviews.
Do you have a pet peeve about when someone posts a comment on your blog? Example: no link back to their blog?
First and foremost I love all the comments I get. It makes me feel very appreciated to receive comments, so thanks to everyone who does. However, I do prefer it when people add links so I can visit back. It might take me some time, but I will eventually. I also always try, when I comment on other blogs, to comment on the actual post or respond to something said in the post, because I myself prefer it as well when people actually comment on things I say. It always makes me laugh when I quote something from a book and then say I don't like it and then people comment saying they absolutely love that quote as well.

Does Blogger count as a social site? Because this one is quite possible my favourite. But since we're all on that (or Wordpress) anyway, I'll pick another one. Or two.
I absolutely love Tumblr. It's so much fun and I spend hours and hours on it. I am most definitely on the Fandom-side of Tumblr, rather than the "hipster-side". My dashboard is basically full of SuperWhoLock, Teen Wolf, Star Wars, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings and so much more. Also a lot of Buffy and Firefly. Here's a link to my blog there, I follow back :) The more the better and I apologize in advance for any random posts that are currently on the first page.
I'm also enjoying Twitter a lot more in the last few months. I used to get really nervous about it because I didn't know whether I could reply to tweets etc. But I've loosened up a bit and everyone is really friendly up there!
Book Beginnings and Follow Friday are hosted by Gillion over at Rose City Reader and Freda at Freda's Voice. This week I'm using Kurt Vonnegut's The Sirens of Titan. I really like Vonnegut and I saw this one on sale so I had to buy it.
The Sirens of Titan is an outrageous romp through space, time, and morality. The richest, most depraved man on Earth, Malachi Constant, is offered a chance to take a space journey to distant worlds with a beautiful woman at his side. Of course there’s a catch to the invitation—and a prophetic vision about the purpose of human life that only Vonnegut has the courage to tell.BB:
'Everyone now knows how to find the meaning of life within himself. But mankind wasn't always so lucky. Less than a century ago men and women did not have easy access to the puzzle boxes within them. They could not name even one of the fifty-three portals to the soul.' p.1I like how absurd his writing is and it's hilarious at the same time. He always seems to write stories that no one else could come up with and yet it always seems so incredibly human, if that makes sense.
'It was a marvellous engine for doing violence to the spirit of thousands of laws without actually running afoul of so much as a city ordinance. Noel Constant was so impressed by this monument to hypocrisy and sharp practice that he wanted to buy stock in it without even referring to his Bible.' p.56I just love the tone oft his F56. I have no idea what exactly is happening because I haven't started reading this one yet, but the whole idea of something being so wrong it's a 'monument to hypocrisy' had me laughing out loud! I really hope the whole book is like that!
So, that was my post for today. What is your commenting pet peeve? And do you have a favourite social netowork?
