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.
