So please take this post by way of an apology and a chance to finally get the response you may have been hoping for.

Hum, Interesting--thank you for posting this review on my linky!! I am now following you on GFC!!

Michele aka MikiHope www.mikishope.com
Thankyou for hosting the linky Michelle. I love to be able to share my reviews with others, especially those who might not read them otherwise. Corridors of the Dead is currently taking a new bookcrossing journey, it will be interesting to see where it ends up next.

Wow, I like your covet more than mine! I'll add that to my coveted home library list, if you don't mind. Lovely description of your books. I didn't need a picture. Your description painted a picture in my mind. I can tell you love your books as much as I love mine and it seems we might have similar reading tastes. Thanks for playing! 
I dream of a place where I could have as many books as I want, all easily available to reach. Or even better, my own private library from which I could lend people books but always know where they were so that I could get them back and read them again whenever I wanted. But I guess most readers dream of that!
I love writing and I guess that must have come across in my description. Thanks for the compliment. And thankyou for hosting- I just love readathons and their challenges!

That sounds really good. Thanks for playing! 
 I had great fun with the mini-mini-challenge. It was great to try and put together sentences from various parts of the book so that they still made sense in some way. I'm not sure I quite managed, but I think it nevertheless gives a good flavour of the book as a whole.

dang, I wish I had found this when you started so I could have joined in. Sounds like you enjoyed it :)

The Winter Respite Readathon was great fun! Sorry that you missed it, maybe you can join in next time?! You may have noticed that I do lots of readathons around here- keep an eye out in my 'Readathons and Reading Challenges' tab if you want to be sure of catching those that I'm signed up to.
Now hopping back

I keep trying to find time to read... it isn't happening though :(
Alexa Hopping from http://www.BuildingCarpenters.com Now following you everywhere:) 
Woah, following me everywhere sounds scary ;) Seriously though, thanks for the visit and the following. Hoping back over to see you now.

You did a great job, Abigail. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for joining me and I hope you will consider joining me for my next one. It will be in the Spring and I'm hosting at my other blog, Castle Macabre. Be watching for details! 
Thanks. I loved doing the Winter Respite Readathon. I won't be doing your next one as its not really my genre, but the next time there's a non-genre-specific readathon I'll no doubt join you again.

That is an interesting intro -- think I'd need to read a bit more to decide whether this one's for me. enjoy 
One paragraph is better than a line, but with Pratchett the start is quite mysterious. If you haven't spotted it already, I've posted a review of Pyramids here. Hopefully that will help you get a better idea of if you'd like to read it or not. It used to be my favourite Pratchett book, but I'm not so sure anymore.

I need to do this type of project too.
Visiting from the Alexa hop. I took the time to write a review and hope you will do the same on one of my blogs. http://www.made-only-in-usa.com http://www.boystobooks.com
Thanks  for your visit. Operation Deepen Faith has been going OK for me at the moment, but some of my fiction reading is starting to get in the way of my books about the bible reading- more in my monthly update soon. 
I popped across to your blogs, but couldn't see a review- did you mean this comment? If not, drop me a link because I'd love to see the review. I'm popping back across to 'boys to books now' now to say hi properly.

Fantastic idea! Can you imagine the culture shock when you woke up? ;) 
Thanks for the compliment. Ice just made me think of cryogenic status, that's all! It would be an enormous culture shock when you woke up. Interestingly enough I watched a Stargate episode the other day which had a similar plot- on a planet had been devastated the natives went into a sort of virtual reality which sustained and nourished them. Eventually, after lots of unexpected delays, they woke up to find their planet thriving with life once more. The first thing they did was to pick the flowers!

Brilliant teaser! I love Terry Pratchett. Thanks for taking part :) 
Terry Pratchett is brilliant isn't he! I just love the way his fantasy takes elements of real life and distorts then into something else completly different. Its such an intelligent kind of wit!

Sounds interesting! Here's my teaser.
Guards! Guards! certainly is an interesting book. And I'll tell you what else is interesting- I seem to be getting more comments on Pratchett books than on my other review. Must mean something!
Popping by to visit your teaser now.

Just stopping by from the alexa hop. Come by and leave some alexa love: http://www.centsablelady.com
It's really interesting the mix of people that visit during an Alexa hop. I usually pop by all the book-related sites that are there when I sign up, but there only seem to be a few of those at the moment. Thanks for visiting me. I'm dropping by your site now- 'see' you there! (What a catchy name btw)

Liking the review xx

Alexa hopping and saying hi :-) http://www.beckvalleybooks.blogspot.com and www.beckvalleybooks.co.uk xx 
Glad you liked the review. War Horse is one of those books that I felt it was important to read before I saw the movie. Still haven't managed to get round to seeing the film however *rolls eyes*. Interestingly, I took this book to a local bookcrossing meetup the other day and everyone wanted it- even more popular than I thought!

Hard to believe February's more than half over. Happy Blog Hop. I hope you stop by
I know, February has gone so fast! It may take me a while to stop by but if you leave a link then I always will eventually. Stopping by now.

Building an audience and appealing to them with your posts is definitely something you should be proud of! :) 
Now I just have to find an efficient way of quickly replying to comments in a meaningful way.

I can't help but enjoy watching as the follower numbers go up too. Just because then I know for sure someone has been reading my blog and the stats aren't just someone googling some random sentence and wound up at the blog.

Here's my FF
Yes, although its becoming more complicated as there are more ways to follow. Does anyone know a way of counting how many people are following you by e-mail / feed? Is that even possible?

Stopping by from the Alexa Hop! Please stop by my blog at http://wholelottamama.net <3 
Isn't it sad that so many people presume your have to be going out with someone to be happy! Stopping by your blog now.

Love Anne McCaffrey! Now I have the urge to pick up one of her books! Happy reading!

Here's mine:
Anne McCaffrey is quite a new writer to me, but I just love books about dragons as a rule. And this one did not disappoint! I'm reading the 2nd book in the series now and finding that good as well.  
Valentina @ http://abigailannreadi... - WWW Wednesdays #11 1 week ago · 0 replies · 0 points
My reading is nothing but varied. I just love the fact that I have such a range of genres, time periods and writing styles on my shelves. It means that I rarely get tired of reading since there's always something to pique my interest.
