A couple of my fellow bloggers were kind enough to give me a couple of blogging awards, and although I am unforgivably slow when it comes to acknowledging them and passing them out to some other fellow bloggers, it's never too late.

Thank you to Anna of Diary of an Eccentric for giving me the #1 Blogger Award!

Naida of The Bookworm created the award, and made this adorable button with a picture of her dog wearing one of her own hand-crocheted creations. So cute.

Thank you so much Anna!

Jules at Jules' Book Reviews gave me the Let's Be Friends Award:

Blogs that received the Let’s Be Friends Award are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers.

Thank you so much to both Jules and Anna. Please accept my apologies for being so slow to post! I really appreciate your taking the time to tell me that you enjoy my blog- it means a lot.

I'm going to give out both awards to ten terrific bloggers:
  1. Jan of Steps From the Beach, Surrounded by Fur
  2. Sharon of Sharon Loves Books and Cats
  3. Vasilly of 1330V
  4. Amy of Life by Candlelight
  5. Rebecca of Just One More Page
  6. Gwendolyn of A Sea of Books
  7. Jill of Breaking the Spine
  8. Dawn of She is Too Fond of Books
  9. Odette of Reading Proust in Foxborough
  10. Audrey of Food From Books
These are all fantastic blogs with great writing, written by really nice people. Go read them!

Oh, Marie! Congratulations on your awards and thank you so much for sharing with me! Yours was actually one of the first blogs I "found", so it's especially nice for you to welcome me into the community! Congrats to all the other recipients - I'm going to go and visit those of you I don't know yet.

Thanks so much, Marie, for the awards! What a great shout out...and I so appreciate the blogger love! I have been following your site since I got into book blogging, and it's one of my favorites!

Fibro Witch said...

I enjoyed reading the other blogs and started following a few. Hope I get some follows back.

I really should get some more book reviews on my blog. Heck, I should do more blogging on my blog.

Congrats on the awards, Marie ... and thanks for sharing :)

I knew the pic on the button was Bookworm's pup, but didn't realize she had crocheted the sweater ... especially cute now!

Anna said... definitely deserve the awards!
