Make My Day Award

Thanks to Wendy at Caribousmom for choosing me for the "Make My Day Award"! The premise of this award is to pick 10 blogs that "Make my Day."

Now I have the extremely hard honor of choosing ten blogs that make my day. Many of the blogs that Wendy chose would also make my list, but I am going to come up with a new list of lucky recipients (in NO particular order):

1) Phoebe at Knit Happened - Wendy enables Laura, Laura enables me, and I enable Phoebe. What a vicious cycle! Phoebe is not new to blog world but new to challenges, and she is taking it on like a champ! And she's one of my dearest friends in the whole world.

2) Chris at The Reading Nook - Chris is new to blogging and is off to a great start. Her reviews are very insightful. And her blog is very pretty!

3) JK at TeacherDad's Book Reviews - JK aka TD has the patience of a saint. His 50 book challenge thread on LibraryThing has been hijacked by women who rant about all things bookish. His book blog is enormously funny, but his personal blog has made me laugh and cry (those darn eulogies). 

4) Vasilly at 1330V - After a short hiatus from blogging. V is b-a-a-a-c-k - and I am so glad she is. I missed reading her stuff. 

5) Elizabeth (raidergirl3) at An Adventure in Reading - My favorite P.E.I. resident and Zusak fan! Her blog always has great reviews, and her tequila theme makes me yearn for some margaritas!

6) Lisa at Book. Lists. Life - Lisa has a cute monkey and is about to have another one. How she finds time to read and review her books is beyond me. Her blog is always fun to read.

7) Megan at Leafing Through Life - Megan is just plain funny. And she reminds me how poor we are in our mid-20's. Hang in there, girl. The 30's are a little more prosperous!

8) Lisa at PfeifferBookNotes - Lisa and I have so many books in common -and such similar tastes - it's almost scary. I can always get a good book idea from her!

9) Julie at Thinking... - One of my favorite humans in the world. I love how Julie words her posts. She is so warm and enthusiastic. I want to send her a hug over the pond! =)

10) Kelly at MyUtopia - Here's another blogger that's having a baby! Her reading and blogging have slowed down a bit (and understandably so), but I look forward to baby updates when her bundle of joy arrives.


I enjoy everyone's blogs so much. Thank you for letting me share your world!

Why, thank you. Your posts are always great to see on my flist, and you've picked some other great bloggers too. Ten sounds like a lot, but it is pretty easy to find at least ten great blogs that make your day!

Aw, thanks! You make my day, too! And it's also good to be assured that I won't be impoverished like this forever. =)

Thnank you -- you like me! You really like me!
Actually I was a bit apprehensive, I thought "make my day" was going to be some Clint Eastwood-style revenge for a book I said was awful...
