A Few Awards

On Thanksgiving weekend, I'm not only Thankfully Reading but also thankful for my blogging friends. In that spirit, I'd like to acknowledge some awards that have come my way and to alert you to four blogs that are on my regular blog-reading circuit.

One thing I love about the blogging community is that it crosses international boundaries and spans oceans.

Carolyn from Book Chick City and Alice from Hello, My Name Is Alice both gave me the Uplifting Blogger Award. Carolyn is a UK blogger and hasn't been blogging very long, but she cranks out great book reviews, author interviews, and is even hosting two reading challenges! Alice lives in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. We overlap in a lot of areas, such as books and photography. It's a little crazy for me to put my name in the same sentence as hers though when it comes to camera work. Alice is an awesome photographer!

Kaye from The Road Goes Ever Ever On gave me an award she designed to celebrate her blogoversary. Kaye is another blogger who is active in both the book blogging community and the photography community. I think I discovered her blog through Wordless Wednesday. Once I saw her hobbit banner picture, I knew we'd be blogging buddies.

Amy from Passages to the Past gave the Honest Scrap Award. Amy is the historic fiction queen, and her blog is a great source of industry news, author interviews, and book reviews. I love her feature about castles. This award comes with a meme; I'm supposed to reveal 10 honest things about myself.
  1. I love my job.
  2. I wish I had more time to read.
  3. I let weeds take over my gardens this past summer.
  4. I look forward to my birthdays.
  5. I can't carry a tune and refuse to sing in public.
  6. I wore braces (on my teeth) when I was in my late 30s.
  7. I drove my last car for 17 years.
  8. I wish I had a wood-burning stove.
  9. I hate doing housework.
  10. I really don't like to shop
Instead of passing these awards along, I'd like to encourage you all to visit Carolyn, Alice, Kaye, and Amy -- I bet you add their blogs to your reader.

Congrats Beth on all of your awards - they are very much deserved!

Congrats on your awards, Beth! You made me blush with your statement. I think you're a great photographer and I'm more than happy to share the same sentence with you! Hehe...

I love your answers to the 10 things about you. The only time I sing in public (well, not so public) was during karaoke session.
