Follow my book blog Friday is hosted by ParaJunkee’s View.

Guess who’s this week’s featured blogger?


Go check it out! What do you think of my new look? It’s a Parajunkee Design original! A special thanks to Kristin over at Nocturnal Bites for giving me her spot on the waiting list! Don’t forget to grab my new button before you move on to your next stop on today’s hop! Also, Give me a shout out if you’re a new GFC or Twitter follower. I always follow back!

Rabid Reads

This week’s question:

What did you study in college, or are currently studying and did it lead to your current 9 to 5 or are you doing something totally different?

I’m currently studying part-time in Web Design. It didn’t lead to my current job but it didn’t hurt either. Social media content is one of my responsibilities. How could I say no to being on Twitter and Facebook at work?

Owner, designer and main blogger behind Rabid Reads. Avid book reader, snowboard bunny, video gamer and Supernatural fan. I love all things paranormal, werewolves especially. Oh, and I’m Canadian, eh!

  4. Hiya! old follower dropping by for Friday Follow and omg the redesign kicks ass! I even posted about that! 😉 Anywho, I do work in the industry that I studied to get into for my 9 to 5 but everyone keeps saying my zany antics should have led me to radio — we shall see! 😉

  7. College – I initially majored in liberal arts, but after a year decided it wasn’t for me!! After taking a year off to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, I decided to get into business. I received my associates degree in business & software applications. After that I got my bachelors in Business & Technolgy. I would say that yes, what I went to school for does relate to my current job in Accounting. I practically live in an Excel spreadsheet, which I actually don’t mind. I love figuring out cool functions and formulas that help automate Bank reconciliations. Better yet, I love playing with Macros & Visual basic…drives the old-school accountants batty… I love it when they say, something can’t be automated, and then I get my hands on it and tadah!! Yeah, no need to say thanks, but I just made your job easier, old grumps!!! See how evil I am??? Lol!!!


  8. I would love to be paid to be on Twitter and Facebook at work. Instead, I just spend a lot of time there when I have nothing else to do. 😉

  9. Hey I’m a new follower who saw your feature on Parajunkee’s blog 😀

    I’m really new to the blogging community but I hope to participate more soon!
    Ps. Love your blog design :]

  10. Congrats on being the wonderful feature of the week. You did a pleasant post.

    Oh me what a question this week.

    I really think the characters are important. It makes me want to read the book if I want to know the characters. But a good plot with twists just makes it move along.

    I just finished a degree in Biological Sciences and am still working on a degree in Humanities, History, and Religious Studies. What do I want to do when I grow up? I want to be the hottest historian on the history channel, national geographic, or discovery channel!

    I’m launching a new reading challenge that you might be interested in, Morbid Romantica Challenge 2011.

    Also today is the start of a Ridley’s Giveaway where you can win a Hardcover copy of either Beautiful Creatures or Beautiful Darkness.
