I <3 Blogs


I’ve been absent from blogging for a quite a while now, things in my life are a bit hectic at the moment, and I have no Internet access at home. So that puts a bit of a damper on being able to blog at all hours of the day.

THANK YOU to Medieval Bookworm for *hearting* my blog!! I feel so special. =)

Now its my turn to let other blogs realize how special they are.

The rules:
1) Add the logo of the award to your blog.

2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you.

3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs. (I have a feeling the people I’m nominating have already been given this award)

4) Add links to those blogs on your blog. (Done.)

1. The Bluestocking Society

2. Letters on Pages

3. Devourer of Books

4. Should be Reading

5. Take the Canoli (yummy yummy recipie blog)

6. The Book Lady Blog

7. Hidden Side of a Leaf

I promise I’ll be settled down by October and will have a number of reviews ready to be posted. I’m already working on the review for all 4 Stephanie Meyers books in the Twilight Series, although, I can give you all a sneak preview and say that I really enjoyed the first book, Twilight, and I wish I had stopped reading then because the following three books just fell apart.

I’m also trying to start the Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse vampire mystery series, but I seem to be only be able to find books 6,7,8 at my library and I can’t start from the beginning.

I did go to the San Francisco Big Book Sale, and it was not exactly what I was expecting. There were thousands of books, but on some tables you saw 30 copies of the same book (ie Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone). But fair prices, I even accidentally ended up buying an autographed copy of The Professor and the Madma, by Simon Winchester. I picked up mostly cookbooks for myself and a few memoirs for my sister (which I also plan on reading). October should be a good month.
