One, Two, Three What do I appreciate…BOOKS!!!

Oh yes, indeedy I love books and being nominated for the Booker Award is insanely amazing–I would apologize for my enthusiasm,yet how can I contain my happy dance about being nominated for a blogger award that is all about what this blog is all about–books and all its components, like writing, writers, reviews, all that words stuff.

So a big ol’ thanks to valerierlawson for nominating me.  Here is what it looks like:

And here is what it is all about:

The award goes to blogs that are at least 50% about books–allowance for readings or writing (glad about that)

The next part is tough. To receive the award the blogger must share the top five favorite books ever read. My, my, my–that’s almost cruel.  I will have to pause and give it some thought.

The other part is almost as tough since I must select  5-10 other wonderful book blogs to pass on the award.  I’ll start here first:

Without a doubt Literary Tiger. I appreciate LT’s comments, insights, and humor.  A definite Book Booster.

Another definite is Eagle-Eyed Editor whose wit and way with words is wonderful. I enjoy our blog chit-chats.

If we are talking bookworms (says so right on the banner), let’s mention shelovesreading. This blogger loves books, writes about books, promotes books. That’s a blogger worth a Booker Award mention.

Now back to favorite reads.  These are by no means my ultimate top five reads; however, they are among the books I would pack in a trunk if being dropped off on an island ala Tom Hanks and no volleyballs were about.

1.  The Bible.

2.  To Kill a Mockingbird

3.  Pride and Prejudice or maybe Emma or do I have to chose one Jane Austen?

4.  Jane Eyre

5. The Oxford Dictionary.

If you want to know my reasons why, drop in and we can chat.  I love talking books.  I do indeed.

Here are some other book blogs to consider:

bibliophiliacs

If I missed mentioning your blog and you know I should know about it I will plead finals week weariness. I am creating this post after a 12 hour day of meetings, doling out finals, and grading finals.  Is there any dark chocolate in the house?

  1. Thank you so very much for the nomination. Gosh darn it, I’m floored. But I can’t believe I can only choose 5 books?!

    • I know. Five? Really? That’s why I took the approach of selecting books I wouldn’t get tired of reading and rereading. I hadn’t heard or seen of this award before. I can relate to this one most definitely!

  2. Congrats! And I totally agree with To Kill a Mockingbird; it’s such an amazing book!

  3. I like our blog chit-chats too, and enjoy your blog with all of its interesting material. Thanks for nominating me.

    Great choice for top 5 reads! I agree with all of them — especially Jane Austen. It’s so hard to pick a favorite, isn’t it?

  4. Thank you for the nomination I’m so grateful 😀 I’ll do my own post in a few days, but only 5 books? thats gonna be hard 😀

  5. I agree with To Kill a Mockingbird and Jane Eyre as well. The former is one of my favorite classic books! I think it would be easy for me to choose at least four of my five favorite books. Also, congratulations on the nomination!
