Blog Awards & Welcome to New Followers

Today was a nice day for doing blog updates. I managed to write most of my reviews for recently read books, do some basic blog maintenance and catch up on others blogs. Also I finally got around to nominating awards and posting the awards (this post to be exact) I received recently.

I also wanted to say a big welcome and thank you to all the new followers that think my blog is worth following.

And to my "old" followers thank you as well for all the support you have given me since I started blogging.

I never thought when I started this blog that people other then a few friends and family would find my reviews interesting.

Awards, Awards, Awards!

I have recently been given some new shiny awards. As well as some older awards that I have previously received (and diligently passed on). I did notice that my side bar where I posted the award pictures, was just getting a little long. I found this groovy slide show application that will display the awards nicely.

Thank you Wrighty's Reads for the Heartfelt Award

Thank you Missy's Book Nook for One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you Escape in a Good Book for the Lemonade Stand Award

Humane Award
The Humane Award is to honor certain bloggers that I feel are kindhearted individuals. They regularly take part in my blog and always leave the sweetest comments. If it wasn't for them, my site would just be an ordinary book review blog. Their blogs are also amazing and are tastefully done on a daily basis. I thank them and look forward to our growing friendships through the blog world.

This was awarded to me from Julie at Julies Jewels thank you Julie, I send this right back to you. The Bloggers who I have nominated:

Rebecca @ Im Lost In Books
Texas@ Texas Red Books
Literary Feline @ Musings of a Bookish Kitty
Bumbles @ The Bumbles
Koolaide Mom @ In the Shadow of Mt TBR

ds Award
Thanks to Rebecca at Im Lost in Books for awarding this to me (again I send this back to you as you have been such a good bloggy friend LOL). I will award this one to all my new followers as I look forward to getting to know you all.
Literary Blogger Award
Thanks to Texas Red for awarding this one to me (and I would like to send it back I love your blog). The Literary Blogger Award acknowledges bloggers who energize & inspire reading by going the extra mile. These amazing bloggers make reading fun & enhance the delight of reading!

The bloggers I gave this award to send me into dangerous territory every time I read their blogs as I usually find something I want to buy.

  5. Congrats to you Caspette! You deserve every award! Thank you for passing one on to me as well. I really enjoy your blog and your friendship. You always have such fun things here. I'm trying to install that slide show for my awards too. I started it last month and never finished it. I have a lot of maintenance to do and you've inspired me to catch up and clean up. I hope you're enjoying Finger Lickin' Fifteen. I can't wait to start it! It wouldn't be summer without a new Stephanie Plum. Enjoy your weekend!

    Missy - Me too.

    Kaye - I agree it is a wonderful thing that you can be friends with some one you have never physically met in another country all because of the wonderful internet.

    Wrighty - Finger Lickin Fifteen was fantastic. Im thinking I will bump it up the review posting list as I know a few people have it on their own Mt TBRs.
