I invite you to share the book(s) you are currently reading by hopping along in my book blog hop, WoW Weekly 100 Words.

Feel free to share anything else you'd like on your post, especially book-related items. And be sure to visit throughout the week so you can introduce yourself to others on the WoW lists each week.

I use The Word Count Tool to count my book excerpts. I type in the box provided, then once I have 100 words, I copy and paste it right into my blog post.
