Awards! Lovely acknowledgement

All of us from time to time feel a bit like we're blogging out into a vacuum, so getting awards are always so flattering!

Prolific Blogger award from Stacy at A Novel Source and Lisa at Bibliophiliac.

"A Prolific Blogger is one who is intellectually productive, keeping up an active blog with enjoyable content. After accepting this award, recipients are asked to pass it forward to seven other deserving blogs." Wow! Thank you!

Honest Scrap Award from Priya at The Plum Bean Project. I have gotten this one before but Honest is the best compliment in my opinion. I do always try very much to be Honest, even if it isn't always nice (though I do try to be tactful.)

For this one, I need to list ten facts about me, and I'm going to try for new facts this time.
  1. I am severely allergic to poison ivy. I do not go off-path in parks.
  2. I say purple is my favorite color but you can easily tell by looking in my closet that it's blue.
  3. I am a very picky eater
  4. but oddly, I really like lima beans.
  5. I took ballet for over 10 years and I was always just terrible, but I enjoyed it.
  6. I played touch football in college, and I was excellent at rushing the quarterback.
  7. I drive a ridiculous, huge, old-people's car (it was free)
  8. My Dad worked for the president when I was 2 years old.
  9. I edited a New York Times bestseller
  10. I am really, really sad for Nashville right now, my hometown. Text 'REDCROSS' to 90999 to donate $10 to disaster relief

And here are 10 blogs I'm passing these awards on to:

Shelf Love
Black Sheep Dances
A Book a Week
Stuck in a Book
Are You There Youth? It's Me, Nikki
Reading Through Life
Mode A La Pie
English Major's Junk Food
She Is Too Fond of Books
The Book Mole

So Thanks to you guys! I enjoy your posts!
