The northern hemisphere, at least, is socked in by winter right now… So, on a cold, wintry day, when you want nothing more than to curl up with a good book on the couch … what kind of reading do you want to do?
When it’s really cold, I like get into my bed, snuggle up under my warm covers, and then read. I’m not particular about the type of book, though I don’t think I’d read anything that required me to think. The problem I have, however, is that I always fall asleep!
I’d like to say thank you to Reagan at Miss Remmers’ Reviews for my first award for 2010. It’s quite a lovely award, don’t you think?
There are a couple of rules for this award:
- Every winner of the Prolific Blogger Award has to pass on this award to at least seven other deserving prolific bloggers. Spread some love!
- Each Prolific Blogger must link to the blog from which he/she has received the award.
- Every Prolific Blogger must link back to This Post, which explains the origins and motivation for the award.
- Every Prolific Blogger must visit this post and add his/her name in the Mr. Linky, so that we all can get to know the other winners.
Miss Remmers’ Reviews is one of the blogs that I first visited during Bloggiesta as part of the comment mini-challenge, and I enjoy Reagan’s posts, especially the Thesis Statement Video, which has the Thesis Statement Rap in it. LOL! Had to put it in there :-)
Now for my magnificent seven nominees:
Care’s Online Book Club – While Care is currently UNPLUGGED, I enjoy reading her posts, particularly the Virginia Wolf ones (I argue I don’t like stream of conscious, and yet I loved Push. Maybe I should give Ms. Wolf a shot, since it really was the movie The Hours that made me run from her.) Looking forward to your return, Blogging Buddy :-)
Wrighty Reads – Debbie has great reviews and I enjoy her “So I was just wondering…” posts. AND she’s a fellow left-hander ;-) Lefties RULE!
Unfinished Rambler – Poor Unfinished. He’s lost his favorite blog home, Humor-Blogs.com, and he’s been going through the various stages of grief about it. I think he might be at acceptance now, but I’m not quite sure… He’s definitely still snarky about it, but he’s usually snarky anyway, which is one of the things I enjoy about his blogs. Did you know Elvis is the janitor at his library? He’s probably too cool for this award, but here it is all the same :-)
Lady Gwyn’s Kingdom – This is a fairly new-to-me blog, but quite enjoyable. I found it through my Google Alerts. She had “Reading Challenge” and Welsh on the same page, so Google thought it was the same as “Welsh Reading Challenge”… erm, not quite, but I’m glad for GA’s loose extrapolation, because I would have missed this one. It’s a lovely blog, playing chamber music while you read reviews of books about Tudors and other royal members behaving badly (and some not so bad, too;-) ), books by Sharon Kay Penman, and you can read about what happened on this day in history, as well.
Reading In Color – Ari is probably another one who is too cool for this award (really, she is, go check her blog out :-) ), but it’s what I’ve got to show my appreciation for what she’s doing, so here ya go. She’s working with Doret and Laura on a project to find the most diverse YA/MG publishing company, so if you have any ideas, pass it along!
Debbie’s World of Books – This is another great blog I first visited during the Bloggiesta mini-challenge, and I’ve enjoyed ever since. Great reviews, fun memes, and I love the blog theme (purple’s my favorite color ;-) )
In Spring is the Dawn – Also a Bloggiesta find, Tanabata focuses a lot on All Things Japanese, whether that be in book or movie form, or the traditional music of Japan. It’s fascinating to learn about translations, and her blog’s layout is fun and beautiful.
Also, don’t forget to check out my giveaway! I’m giving away a copy of Push by Sapphire, and the more people sign up, the more prizes! If 50 or more people enter to win, I’ll add $10 to spend on Amazon.com for the grand prize!
