Book bloggers are invited to hop along with us in this WoW Weekly 100 Words blog hop. Just snag the hop button and link for your blog post, add your post link and title to the weekly linky list provided in my weekly WoW 100 post. Although this is a Wednesday hop, you're welcome to hop in at any time throughout the week and share from the book titles you are currently reading.

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.
