Cathy (cgraceh) | 64 comments I started this topic in an other blog but I am curious to see what other bloggers and book bloggers think about Memes? Do you participate in them? Are there ones you particularly like?

I think they are a great networking tool and it can help set up a post for your blog every day of the week!

For example I just posted TBR Thursday Hosted by Book Love Blog (http://bookluv.blogspot.com/) on my blog yesterday to talk about what books came into my house this week, whether I bought them, borrowed them, downloaded them, etc.

(There are similar memes hosted by The Story Siren at http://www.thestorysiren.com/ called "In My Mailbox"; and Should Be Reading shouldbereading.wordpress.com called "Friday Finds")

Abigailann (Abigail) | 10 comments I enjoy doing memes, but don't always do the ones I've joined every time.


message 4: by Ashley (new)

Ashley (readerandwriter) check out http://www.shouldbereading.wordpress.com the owner of the blog has memes for everyday of the week.


message 5: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) | 40 comments I love participating in memes, but I can't always post them because of busy-ness. Although I definitely try. I started one of my own, What's your status?, that is still up-and-coming. I also have "memes": Music/ Movie Monday, Warm-Up Wednesday, Thursday Interpretation, and Current State of the Union. The "memes" are ones that I try to do every week or biweekly, but they don't have Linkys. However, I would still love for people to participate in them; they can leave links in the comments.

Sounds really unique! Love it, Zakiya!

Julie (jflamingo) | 23 comments I haven't heard of many of these! Thanks for sharing, y'all. I may just have to give a few of these a try on my personal blog . So far, I've only participated with Teaser Tuesday from Should be reading and The Top Ten at thebrokeandthebookish
It has been fun when I've been able to give time to post and comment too!

heather - NightlyReading (heatherhy01) Maybe its the time difference?


message 17: by Karen (new)

Karen | 44 comments Possibly but I can set it to post on Monday. There's only a hour or so difference I think.


heather - NightlyReading (heatherhy01) you could try, I know, I try to follow some other memes and I always get the posts a day late:(

message 20: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay Paige (authorlindsaypaige) | 7 comments I always have a hard time with doing memes. Some of them I just don't really want to do enough to do it regularly. I've just started doing the book blogger hop by Crazy For Books: http://www.crazy-for-books.com/

I have invented two of my own memes. One is Cover Wars where different covers from a book battle to see which one everyone likes. People vote for a week, I post the winner and the next covers. Details are here: http://justanotherbookaddict.blogspot...

this week's covers are here: http://justanotherbookaddict.blogspot...

I also started Sweet Discoveries on Sunday where I post about "sweet" books that I have "discovered" during the week. I try to post it regularly but I don't always find new books during the week.

That's pretty much it...

I love the idea of cover wars!!! I think chick lit reviews does that too but there's might not be as frequent as a weekly meme...I will definitely join in next week!! Thanks for sharing!

I'd like to join the Thursday Interpretation meme. May I? (Also since you haven't make any picture specially for it may I put my own?) Thanks :D


Jillian (PidginPea's Book Nook) (pidginpea) I love memes. I don't always participate in the same ones every week, but they always help to get me blogging when I'm feeling stuck.

I have a Young Adult & Middle Grade book review blog, PidginPea's Book Nook. Right now I'm working on starting up a new meme called { bon voYAge! } to find and review YA & MG books that take place in exciting locations. It's kicking off on February 1. Details here, if anyone is interested:

Andrea (andreaking) Books and Bindings started the weekly meme, Monday Madness. Be sure to check it out! :)

We do reviews, weekly memes (Monday-Friday), author interviews, character interviews, guest posts, spotlights, releases, challenges, and GIVEAWAYS!

message 27: by Dani (last edited Jan 21, 2015 01:38AM) (new)

Dani C (pentopaperreads) | 15 comments I used to participate in loads of memes, so much so that I had a blog post every day. But since I started working etc, I haven't been able to keep up with it every single day.

I have, however, been running my own meme every Wednesday since I started blogging in 2011!
Wishlist Wednesday is where we post about a book per week that we're hoping to get off our wishlists and onto our shelves soon. Feel free to come and join in! This week's post has just gone live!
