Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

Thanks to  Crazy-for-books for hosting this hop, I hope to hop on from time-to-time......I also found some new blogs and I am looking forward to knowing what others are reading and saying! 

 "Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her."

My Answer:  I am currently reading and actually almost finished with the book  The Year Money Grew on Trees by Aaron Hawkins. The main character is Jackson Jones, who is 13 years old and diligently works on an apple orchard owned by his elderly neighbor. If he succeeds at reviving and growing a healthy orchard, then she will give it to him for a price of $8,0000 and he gets to keep any profits he makes too. Jackson is a smart boy who takes the process as a challenge and learns alot along the way. He has perserverance and bounces with  every up and down that is thrown at him. I think he is a good role model for kids and will show them that in order to succeed, you should never give up. I am looking forward to finishing this book and cheering him on along the way!

I can't wait to hear what others are reading and their characters of choice.  Have a great weekend...........


  1. This sounds like a great book. Jackson sounds like a fine young man...a good role model for any child who reads his story. It's nice to see that good books like this are still being written and published. It's on my Kindle!
