Follow Friday #3

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee
This weeks question is:

Q. What do I do when I am not reading?

A: Hmmm....good question!  You mean, there's a life other than reading? Well, for my husband and I, our only children currently are two dachshunds and two cats. This may change someday soon, but until it does, we spend the majority of our time hanging out with the pups.  On Fridays in the summer we go to the movies a lot.  Yes, I DID buy that bucket for popcorn that only costs $2.50 to refill each time.  I love going to see all the new action, adventure, comic book, chick flick and whatever else there are movies!  As a matter of fact, today we'll be going to see Harry Potter. And next weekend, here's looking at you Captain America! 

Other than that, I spend my time browsing through Goodwill, looking for more used books that I won't get to anytime soon but still feel the need to buy. And I also then blog about my reading experiences, obviously.  Let's see, what else do I do?  This is making me feel boring!  But really, I mainly just enjoy spending quality time with my family, no matter what we're doing. If that means sitting on the couch with my husband, with a dachshund or two in between or beside us, watching television, then that's what I'll be doing!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

    I have a habit of buying book that I probably wont ever read as well! Is there life other than reading???? :)

  6. I really enjoyed Harry Potter. I thought it was a good ending to the series.

    Ugh, I can't wait for Captain America. I really love Stanley Tucci in a weird infatuated kind of way, and Chris Evans isn't bad on the eye by any stretch of the imagination! Old follower, and thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Book Brats!

  15. Thanks for coming by. Schnauzers are cute dogs too! The dogs and cats keep us busy sometimes, that is for sure. I did enter one of your giveaways. How are you liking rafflecopter? I'm going to be doing my first ever giveaway next month.

  16. I'm beginning to think there ISN'T more than reading now that I am blogging and trying to write reviews and host things here on the blog LOL! But its fun :D

  17. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog :D

    I have a beautiful schnauzer named Coren (that's why I chose a schnauzer picture for my blog too, hahaha).
    I love dogs and cats, I'm sure you have a great time with them all!

    Hope you entered in my giveaways too :D



  18. Exactly? What??? There's MORE to life than reading? *gasp*

  19. Lets just say I have enough on my shelf to keep me reading for several years probably!!! I turned a spare bedroom into a library, and I'm already running out of room. But I just can't stop the book buying lol. :D

  20. i have to avoid book stores! i have TOO much on my tbr list!

  21. I completely understand! Just the other day, one of the dogs ate a can of dog food that didn't agree with him. Let's just say, that ended up being a $70 can of food! But we do what we can for them. They are like children for us. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  22. We hope to have more then pets one day too. Sometimes the wait to have a stable nest egg is agonizing. Seems like every time we start to save the dog gets sick and it like 1000 of dollars sick. I love my dogs and now cat but it's so expensive to keep them little ones going.;-)

  23. These questions make me feel boring too, lol. But, like you said, I love just to hang out with my husband and our cats. :)
