Book, Book, Booker Award
One, Two, Three What do I appreciate…BOOKS!!!
Oh yes, indeedy I love books and being nominated for the Booker Award is insanely amazing–I would apologize for my enthusiasm,yet how can I contain my happy dance about being nominated for a blogger award that is all about what this blog is all about–books and all its components, like writing, writers, reviews, all that words stuff.
So a big ol’ thanks to valerierlawson for nominating me. Here is what it looks like:
And here is what it is all about:
The award goes to blogs that are at least 50% about books–allowance for readings or writing (glad about that)
The next part is tough. To receive the award the blogger must share the top five favorite books ever read. My, my, my–that’s almost cruel. I will have to pause and give it some thought.
The other part is almost as tough since I must select 5-10 other wonderful book blogs to pass on the award. I’ll start here first:
Without a doubt Literary Tiger. I appreciate LT’s comments, insights, and humor. A definite Book Booster.
Another definite is Eagle-Eyed Editor whose wit and way with words is wonderful. I enjoy our blog chit-chats.
If we are talking bookworms (says so right on the banner), let’s mention shelovesreading. This blogger loves books, writes about books, promotes books. That’s a blogger worth a Booker Award mention.
Now back to favorite reads. These are by no means my ultimate top five reads; however, they are among the books I would pack in a trunk if being dropped off on an island ala Tom Hanks and no volleyballs were about.
1. The Bible.
4. Jane Eyre
5. The Oxford Dictionary.
If you want to know my reasons why, drop in and we can chat. I love talking books. I do indeed.
Here are some other book blogs to consider:
If I missed mentioning your blog and you know I should know about it I will plead finals week weariness. I am creating this post after a 12 hour day of meetings, doling out finals, and grading finals. Is there any dark chocolate in the house?
