Award Time!

Lisa over at Books and Cooks has been so generous as to give me the following award! Thanks so much Lisa, and I would urge all of you to go check out her blog if you haven't done so already.

This award is given to either newbie blogs or blogs that are new to you. Thanks again Lisa! Now I get to pass this award on to 5 other bloggers who are new to me. This is pretty easy as I have come across a few new ones recently that really caught my eye. Here are just a few:

Stacy's Bookblog
Vera from Luxury Reading
Jenners from Find Your Next Book Here
Laura from Laura's Book and Movie Reviews
Write For a Reader



And then I found out that Reading Extravaganza has given me the Proximidade Award! Talk about making me blush! Please check out her blog as she always has something new and interesting posted.

Here's what this award stands for:



"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award."
And now is the time to announce eight recipients of this award:


Alyce from At Home With Books
Dar from Peeking Between the Pages
Bella from Bella is Reading
TexasRed Books
Michele from A Reader's Respite
Joy from Joy's Blog
Luanne from A Bookworm's World
Sheri from A Novel Menagerie


Thanks again for these wonderful awards, I can't tell you how much they mean to me! Please check out these blogs that I have listed--I bet you will enjoy them as much as I do!
