An Embarrassment of Riches
A few days ago, Book Quoter left me a message saying she had an award for me. That turned out to be the Prolific Blogger Award, and I was truly flattered and charmed. I haven't been doing this for all that long, and I clearly remember writing posts that I believed no one was reading. Well, I believed that because no one was reading them.
So when Ben notified me that he had an award for me I was, again, flattered and charmed.
And when Priya let me know....I was surprised and flattered, and when I realized that all three awards were the Prolific Blogger Award I had to chuckle. I guess I'll just have to enjoy my Academy Awards moment and thank everyone possible, including my 9th grade English teacher, Mrs. Graham, who had to be one of the most tolerant woman in the universe (or a really good actor) because she used to smile at me, encourage me, and give every indication of liking me, when I know for a fact that I was nearly completely unlikeable in the 9th grade.
Now I have to pass on this award to seven other blogs (x3)! I will do this in three separate batches, and it will be a pleasure to do so. I truly appreciate affirmation in any form, and I can only be grateful that three different people chose to give me this award. I look forward to honoring excellent and prolific bloggers, seven at a time. The first seven are in honor of Book Quoter, who really is prolific in her blog (A Thousand Books with Quotes).
Here are my first seven Prolific Blogger Awards:
Caroline Bookbinder (http://carolinebookbinder.blogspot.com)
She is Too Fond of Books (http://she-is-too-fond-of-books.blogspot.com)
Entomology of a Bookworm (http://entomologyofabookworm.blogspot.com)
Confessions of a Bibliophile (http://true-confessions-of-a-bibliophile.blogspot.com)
A Novel Source (http://anovelsource.blogspot.com)
Bibliophile by the Sea (http://bibliophilebythesea.blogspot.com)

These awards are to blogs that are each very different, but each of these bloggers is prolific and interesting. I chose from blogs that I actually follow, and would recommend to others. Many thanks to Book Quoter for recognizing (you can check out her blog by clicking here).
