The Literary Blogger Award

I am very honored to have received this award from Gwendolyn at A Sea of Books. Thank you so much. I will try to measure up by continuing to bring you new and exciting books and book reading news. I am just starting but loving every aspect of the process.

The Literary Blogger Award acknowledges bloggers who energize & inspire reading by going the extra mile. These amazing bloggers make reading fun & enhance the delight of reading!

As part of the process, I would like to pass on this Award to three blogs that I have been following for quite some time. They are in my Google Reader so I never have to worry about missing a single post.
The Rules:

1) Put the logo on your blog/post.
2) Nominate up to 9 blogs.
3) Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4) Let them know that they have been nominated by commenting on their blog.
5) Remember to link to the person from whom you received your award.

I am pleased to pass this award on to:

1. In an earlier post, I sang the praises of one of my nominees, Annie Coleman of St. Louis, Mo. who has devoted untold hours recording classics for Librivox. For me, it is much like those who wait for the author to publish the next book in the series, I wait for the next book that Annie records. I would like nothing better than if she read the whole series of Anne of Green Gables as well as all the Jane Austen books. Needless to say, I think she has great voice.

2. My second nominee, is Jen, Devourer of Books. I first read her on LibraryThing Early Reviewers and ARC Junkies and then started following her blog. She is always on top of new upcoming releases in genres that often appeal to me.

3. My third nominee, is Tina, at Tutus Two Cents, who just recently attracted my attention on LibraryThing, and was very helpful when I had questions about Book Bloggers. Thanks Tina.

My hat is off to all of those who are out there sharing their time and effort to spread the love of books and reading. If each of us bring one more new reader into the fold, we won't ever have to worry about the book industry. Teach one someone the love of reading.


  1. Yay! Another book blog to know about!

  2. Donura...I'm flabbergasted and honored. What a nice surprise for a rainy Sunday afternoon. Your blog is quite elegant, and I put you in my feed reader. Good luck, and keep reading.
