Last week I got a bunch of cool awards from a bunch of awesome bloggers:

Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit and NoBS Book Reviews gave me the the Prémio Dardos Award: The Prémio Dardos is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.

Yvonne of Socrates' Book Reviews, Wisteria of A Bookworm's Dinner and Rhapsody in Books's Weblog gave me the Butterfly Award!

Thank you so much! I'm so flattered that you thought of me.

Both of these awards are memes that need to be passed on.

So I'm going to pick ten bloggers for both awards:

  1. Not A Walking Encyclopedia
  2. Fresh Ink Books
  3. Jew Wishes
  4. A Guy's Moleskine Notebook
  5. Literarily
  6. Rat's Reading
  7. Baking and Books
  8. Breaking the Spine
  9. Scobberlotch
  10. Booktrash
These are some of my favorite blogs- because we share interests, or a point of view, or just because I like the blog- and the blogger! Thank you so much to the folks who gave me the awards and thanks to all of you, who make the blogosphere such a fun place.

Holy cats Marie! I came to read your Sunday Salon and nearly fainted when I saw my blog name above it. I usually think "Oh oh, what I've I done now when I see my name". I'm so touched I could cry. And the terms of the Premio Dardos award are something I could only aspire to. thank you so much. I will display them with pride.

Thank you so much, Marie! What a pleasant surprise! It is a bright spot in my day.

I will pass them on at some point this week.

Marie thanks so much. I will do my best to pass these along. You realize I would have to pass them back to you as well as you are one of my favorites.

I'm so flattered, thank you so much Marie! :) I'm most excited that what started as my way to organize my thoughts of books have become quite a forum with all of you. Thanks again.
