Superior Scribbler!

I got an award, which totally made my day - since I hadn't been blogging much when it I got it, it really motivated me to get moving again! So a big thank you to English Major's Junk Food for the Super Scribbler Award. Here are the rules:



■ Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.

■ Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author and the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.



■ Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.

■ Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor! (I just left a comment on the original post).



■ Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.



I'm passing this on to:


Julie Chats - who has a super-fun scrapbook blog
Ann Again - who hosts the very fun Virtual Girls Night Out on Friday evenings (go sign up! it's a fun way to find new blogs)
The Betty & Boo Chronicles - host of the 2010 Memorable Memoir Reading Challenge - if you haven't signed up yet, what are you waiting for?
Vicki's Scrapbooking & Tidbits - Can you tell I've been on a hunt for scrapbook ideas? This is a new blog to me, and she's got a lot of neat layout ideas.
Biobliophile by the Sea - She's hosting a funny kind of book challenge, called Prepare to be Shocked! Basically, you keep a tally of how many books you purchase this year.*

I also have one sad aside: When I started my challenge, I ran across the blog Bookworm Wannabe, who wa also attempting to read and blog her way through 50 books in a year. Unfortunately, the Bookworm was also a college student and had a lot of other reading to do - she pulled down her blog recently. Sad to see her go. Good Luck in your studies, Bookworm! You'll be missed.

Oh, and here's my award (Isn't it cute?):





*Those of you who know my superhero alter-ego, Spreadsheet Woman, know that not only will I probably do this challenge, I will keep a detailed spreadsheet and do all sorts of fun, yet unnerving, calculations with the data - like figure out the percentage of books I read out of all that I buy, and from that I will extrapolate the true cost of each book I read, but that's not really fair because I check out library books too so start tracking that data and then I'll figure out a way to average the cost and then ... I'm still debating if this challenge is a good idea for me personally.

  1. Congrats on the award! I'm recommending "bipolar bare" (no caps) by Carlton Davis to everyone doing the memoir challenge this year. It's about the author's struggle with bipolar disorder, and his struggles and experiences (and boy, are they many! Lots of sexual deviation and drug use -- it's quite in your face) along the way to coming to terms with it. I know there are some other memoir on this topic out there -- this is first-rate. It could be a movie!
