I Love Your Blog!

I was really excited to see that I had won this award from Mari. Thank you so much Mari - I love your blog as well!

I originally started my blog as a way for me to challenge, expand on and record my reading experiences but the connections I have made in the reading and blogging world have really enriched my reading life so I am so excited to see that my blog is being enjoyed by others.

Now, for the fun part of passing on the award to blogs that I adore:

Here are the rules to keep the award moving:

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

4) Add links to those blogs on your blog

5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs!

My "I Love Your Blog" Awards go to:

1. Thyme For Tea - a close personal friend as well as a blogging friend, Tamara's blog always challenges and informs me about broader issues in the world - thanks T!

2. The Reading Life of an Antipodean Owl - a fellow Aussie, I love reading the great reviews as well as other local info.

3. Little Breeze - Another Aussie blogger with beautiful photos and travel stories - always inspirational.

4. Kiss A Cloud - a gorgeous title for a gorgeous blog!

5. Another Nutter - I love this blog for it's reflections on life and reading - and some great recommendations.

6. Austenprose - I love this blog for its beautiful representation of all things Austen.

I just realised that in the hazy-brained madness of the past couple of weeks I forgot to thank you for nominating me! I was quite chuffed!
