I HAVE BEEN NOMINATED FOR THE LIEBSTER AWARD

 

LIEBSTER AWARD

 

 

I want to thank Sumaira at http://hyperaboutbooks.wordpress.com/ for nominating me for the Liebster Award. This is a great honor and would like to thank everyone who read my blog. You are the reason I am here.

A Liebster Award is a blog award presented to bloggers, by other bloggers. It is just a nice way to give your fellow blogger a pat on the back, and hopefully increase their site traffic too!

So here are the rules I was given:

  1. Each nominee must link back the person who nominated them.
  2. Answer the 11 questions which are given to you by the nominator.
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers for this award who have less than 200 followers.
  4. Create 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
  5. Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them.

My questions from hyperaboutbooks:

  1. What book do you wish you never read?

Johnny Tremain in 8th grade english class. To me that book was so boring, that I had to force myself to finish reading it.

  1. Do you read one book or multiple books at a time?

One book at a time. This is a hard one to choose

  1. Your favourite underrated book?

The Nightlife series by Rob Thurman.

  1. If you were trapped on a desert island and could only take 2 books with you what would they be and why?

This is a hard one to choose. It would probably be an Anthology with my favorite authors in it and Patricia Briggs  FROST BURNED.

  1. Do you buy books based on beautiful covers?

No, by what the story is about.

  1. What do you think about E-readers and Ebooks?

I love them. I can find many free e-books online, and I have more room for books on my shelves.

  1. Is there a book/books you have multiple copies of?

Flame and the Flower by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, and Dead Witch Walking By Kim Harrison. I own the paperback and hardback copy.

  1. Favourite place to read?

In my favorite chair in the living room.

  1. Do you use bookmarks or fold over the pages?

I use a bookmark, or card, or piece of paper.

  1. Do you write in or highlight quotes/sections in book, or do you use post sticks or nothing at all?

Nothing at all.

  1. What inspired you to blog? And why?

I always loved to write, combined with giving friends and family my opinion about a book was a match made in heaven.

I’m interested to see everyone’s answers!

I WANT TO THANK MY FELLOW BLOGGER STAIN ON THE PAGE FOR THIS NOMINATION

liebsteraward1

It seems my fellow blogger STAIN ON THE PAGE  http://stainonthepage.wordpress.com/ 

has nominated my blog for the LIEBSTER AWARD. I am Honored by this. When I started my blog I never thought I would receive anything for it. It was a way to pass the time.

LIEBSTER  is a German word meaning dearest arey, and the award is given to up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.

Rules:

– Link back the blogger that nominated you

– Nominate 10 others who have less than 200 followers

– Answer the 10 questions provided by the blog that nominated you

– Provide 10 questions for the bloggers you nominate

– Let your nominee’s know of their award

HERE ARE MY QUESTIONS.

1. What do you enjoy most about blogging?

      The enjoyment that my blog brings to others, and connecting with my audience.

2. Why did you start a blog?

It was a way to pass the time while I am on a leave of absence from work, while I am waiting to see if I need surgery on my knee. it gives me a break from reading books.

3. Do you prefer “real” books or will you also read on an e-reader?

I read both, because there are some books that I have to have and they are only on the e-reader or they are “real” books. So I ended up going to both, also I started to run out of room to put the printed “real” books,  it also was a storage issue.

4. While on vacation do you stop by that area’s library just to check it out? If so why?

No, I go someplace out of the way to go fishing where no one is around and take my own books.  This way I have peace and quiet.

5. What was your favorite book as a child?

Paddington Bear all of them.

6. If you and your favorite character could meet up for lunch, where would you go?

Someplace that served really good Chinese food. I love Chinese food.

7. Where is your favorite place to read?

Anywhere, but usually in my favorite chair in the living room.

8. Do you have a preferred genre?

I tend to read more URBAN FANTASY/PARANORMAL ROMANCE.

9. If you could live in a fictional place (inside a book) where would you live?

I would probably live in the world of KATE DANIELS BY ILONA ANDREWS. Just to see the by play between Kate and Curran would be great.

10. How long have you been blogging?

29 days.
