How lucky am I that I have a wonderful friend like Christine to give me this fabulous award? Christine in one of the first people that I met on a book forum when I first started doing "book stuff" (as my hubby calls it) on the internet. She was kind and extremely patient with me and all of my questions about abbreviations, etc. Book lovers have their own lingo you know and if you're new you're kind of sitting back going what the hell does that mean? Christine turned me on to the Black Dagger Brotherhood and Brook's Guardian series (just to name a couple) which I love. We had many, many phone conversations about both series.
Anyway, Christine you are such an incredible person and I'm honored to call you my friend. Muah!
Ok - on to the award giving!
"The Let's be Friends Awards stands for this: These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in 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. Deliver this award to eight bloggers."
So here are my choices:
Of course I will give it right back to Christine...how could I not???
Barbara at The Happily Forever After
Amy C. at Romance Book Wyrm
Anna at Anna's Book Blog
Renee at Renee's Book Addiction
Kris at Kris 'n' Good Books
Stacy at Stacy's Place on Earth
Carolyn Jean at The Thrillionth Page
Jill at Romance Rookie
I visit all of these places when I can and I love their blogs. Of course I love all the blogs I go to or else I wouldn't go there! lol
(So my oldest daughter was in the office when I was doing this post and she wanted to know what self-aggrandization was. I explained it to her and then she said she wanted to see what the dictionary said. So I googled the word and got this from wordreference.com: boastful, braggart, bragging, braggy, cock-a-hoop, crowing. I can honestly say that I've never heard of a cock-a-hoop before! Was this a word from the Beverly Hillbillies? Did I miss something in English class when they were teaching me words? Apparently not since Merriam-Webster online hasn't heard of it? Who has heard of it? Is this another Premio Dardas thing? Someone help a girl out.)
I also noticed that I have been given a couple of awards that I have not paid forward (oops, bad Tracy!) so I will be remedying that soon!
