Feature and Follow Friday! & Design Updates

Increase Blog Followers

How does this work? The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

Today's two features are The Mile Long Bookshelf & Hardcore Heroines! Be sure to follow them! Now on to the question :)

How do you handle a book you don't like? Do you DNF or do you power through?

Well I like to finish any book that I start so even if I don't necessarily like the book I will power through. However, If I really do not like the book then I DNF but its very rare. What about you guys?

*I preferred to be followed through GFC & Bloglovin :)

I have three designs to tell you guys about! :) The first design is for this blog, Books Ahoy which I recently did a few days ago. Here's a screenshot:

The next designs were for two authors, Krissy Jones & Rhyme Devereaux. The design for Krissy Jones features a sliding header. Here's the screenshots of both of the designs:

The last recent design is a redesign of my official blog design website, Blogovation Design. It features a textured sheet. Here's a screenshot:

*New Follower (FF)* I hate to DNF a book also! Sometimes it is beyond hard to stick with it, but good or bad I make every effort to finish.!

I usually DNF :( I just feel like I should find better stuff instead of wasting my time on something I don't even like. New follower, check out my FF at www.myviewpointonbooks.blogspot.com :)

Same here, pretty rare but I will DNF if I just can't get through it. Especially if I have one I'm chomping at the bit to get to!

I like your blog design! New follower via GFC and bloglovin.

Usually I will give a book 50-100 pages before I DNF if I'm not enjoying it. I used to power through but I no longer have the time and it turned reading into a chore. There are too many books on my tbr pile for me to feel guilty and I'm picky about what I read, so only have 1 DNF so far!

I hate to not finish a book. It does happen occasionally though. I always give it my best effort before giving up.

I hate not to finish the book eventhough it bores me already.
