Nominated ~ Not once - but TWICE!

Wow. I don't know what to say :) I've only been blogging for a short while, but everyone here in the book blogging community has made me feel so welcome. My friends always tell me what a great blog I have - but I never listen. I think when you're so close to something, you don't see it as others do. I do want to thank everyone that has supported and encouraged me - especially when I thought no one was reading this :)

What I think is great is how everyone supports each other. Whether it's a small post on someone's blog or posting about another great giveaway. We all come together as a group! And it's great to belong to such a wonderful circle of people. You're what keep me blogging ;)

Both Tracy at Book Room Reviews and Lallybroch at Shh I'm Reading nominated me for this awesome award. Lally is both a member of LT and PBS and always has great posts & links to other blogs with giveaways. I won a contest through the link she had on her blog. Tracy is just fantastic. She always has great indepth reviews on her site, links to giveaways and has become a blog friend ;) Thank you both for thinking of ME :)

Now here is what you all need to do ~~ Once an award is received, the rules are as follows:

1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. Nominate at least seven other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

Love To Read -- Melanie ROCKS. Not only is she a fellow PBSer, she's also a great friend. Not to long ago she was hesitant to reallly get blogging, and now look at her now!! We've shared so many good times and great books with each other!

Sexy Pineapple -- Tracey is my late night insomniac buddy. I can always count on her to be up in the middle of the night with me ready for some scrabble moves or just to chat. She's also a friend I met over at PBS. We love the same types of books - and she might just have been the one to give me my bookpimp title!

Rhonda's Corner Of The World -- Another PBS friend who has jumped into the world of blogging. Another fun filled book blogging site. Rhonda and I went through similar situations a few months back and it was great to be able to have someone there who knew what I was going through.

She Is Too Fond Of Books --Dawn does a fantastic job of reviewing her books. She gives the reader just enough info to grab them in without giving the book away. She's also great with keeping up to date on the latest contests and giveaways. I know I've gotten more sign ups for my contests through her posting about them on her blog. Thanks Dawn :)

No More Grumpy Bookseller -- I met Becky through Shelfari. She is great. We've got similar reading styles and have even traded some books. I always make sure to check her blog to see what's out there I may be missing!

Devourer of books -- What an indepth book site. I love reading her blog and seeing what she's up to. I've discovered so many other great book blogging sites by just clicking through all the wonderful links she has here.

I know there are so many great blogs out there that I have listed. And to those that I visit regulary I apologize for not posting about it here. I'm afraid I'd just go on and on and would run out of room. Thank you all for teaching me about blogging, helping me grow and making my TBR get bigger by leaps and bounds!
