More awards!

The BookDepository


Sandy from You’ve Gotta Read This! has honoured me with this proximidade award. Thank you so much Sandy! If you haven’t visited her blog before, then I recommend you go and take a look now, as her reviews are always so informative, and I love the way she includes her children in reviews of  books for younger people.

The Proximidade Award is described in this way: “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!


 Beth from Beth Fish Reads has also presented me with the Zombie Chicken Award. I love Beth’s blog; her reviews are always well thought out, and i love her audiobook recommendations. Here’s what the Zombie Chicken Award is all about:

“The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all…”

I’d hate to find out what zombie chickens do when they’re cross, so I’d like to nominate the following blogs for this unusual award:

B&B Ex-Libris



Rebecca Reads

Stone Soup

All of the above have entertained me with great book related postings over the past month. Thank you!

Please don’t feel you have to blog about the award – I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your hard work.

    I’m so sorry I haven’t been around your blog for a long time. I haven’t been blogging much myself, but I just wanted to drop by and say hi, wish you a good weekend and a nice Easter (if you celebrate that) and apologize for being scarce.

    I am finishing my Master thesis and this takes up most of my time. Hopefully, by the end of May, I will be able to blog more and participate more around the blogosphere.

    I am still reviewing books from time to time on my blog, but I am not really active.

    I don’t expect you to come running visiting and commenting, I just wanted to let you know that I am very much alive and I miss reading and commenting on your blog very much.

    This is a personal message written to all the blogowner, whose delightful blogs I visit on a regular basis, but it has been copy/pasted. So if you find it on other blogger’s blogs, that is why.

    I look very much forward to be active again – and apologize once again for not being active the past month and not being able to be active for another month or two.


  6. Jackie says:

    Lou – don’t worry about regular blogging. I’m not surprised your masters is taking up a lot of time – it must be hard work! I hope that it all goes well, and look forward to your return at some point in the future. Best wishes. Jackie
