I’d like to thank the Academy…

After about a week hiatus, I’m back to the blog world, and what do I find?

A Prolific Blogger Award from the lovely Catherine Ensley at Words World and Wings!

My very first blog award, for being prolific, no less, and I’m not even around to enjoy it. Always that way, huh? So, better late than never, I am now adhering to the guidelines that come with being the recipient of such an award.

Here are the rules:

1. Every winner of the Prolific Blogger Award has to pass on this award to at least seven other deserving prolific bloggers. Spread some love!

Here are my Prolific Blogger Award choices:

a. Stephanie Anderson of Bookavore
b. Guys Lit Wire
c. Andy, Barbara, & Eliza from Shop Talk, the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art blog
d. The Ampersand (the blog that first gave me the idea for my new tattoo)
e. Liz of the life and times of sticks and bricks, the blog for a great indie store in downtown Northampton
f. Deborah Sloan of The Picnic Basket
g. Jenny Brown of twentybyjenny

2. Each Prolific Blogger must link to the blog from which he/she has received the award.

Here is the original post from the Words World and Wings blog.

3. Every Prolific Blogger must link back to This Post, which explains the origins and motivation for the award.

4. 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.

Congratulations to everyone who received this award!

  2. Right back at you, Rebecca! Finding the news about the Prolific Blogger Award on The Picnic Basket absolutely made my day … your comment and recognition underscores what I love about blogging: communicating and sharing resources with people no matter where they live (though I am feeling the need for a spring bookstore road trip so will put a western MA trip on the list!) or what they do. As my blog is geared towards the school and library community, I’m thrilled to learn that readers from all backgrounds find it worthwhile. Thanks for sharing the blogger love and I can’t wait to share some of my favorite blog reads, too.

. . .
Gorgeous illustrations pop with foil pieces that highlight the words of this simple book, perfect for even the youngest reader. The sweetly lyrical text leads the reader from one - a tree - to many - the forest - and beyond, with each turn of the page showing more and more complex scenes through fall, winter, spring, summer, country, city, morning, and night, until we reach the end where the whole world is shining. I immediately wanted to read it again. For all ages, but especially 1-3-year-olds.

DARK IN DEATH by JD ROBB

Does not disappoint! Another solid read in the In Death series by JD Robb. I've been reading this series since 2013, since before she came out as Nora Roberts, and I keep expecting the next book and then the next book and then the next book to dip in terms of quality of style and content and originality, but it just doesn't (thank goodness!). In #46, Dark in Death, JD ROBB almost makes a play on her own life in ways, as Eve is after a murderer who finds inspiration in a specific author's murder mysteries. Robb literally pays homage to the master of the meta, Hitchcock, with mentions of Psycho and Dial M for Murder, and I'm pretty sure the author she describes is modeled after Robb herself (physically). The plot is pretty tight and focused, but we still get glimpses of Peabody & McNab; Leonardo, Mavis, & Bella; Somerset is still off on holiday; and there is just a peek at the growing romantic interest in Nadine's life, as well as a preview of Nadine's next best-seller based on Eve's police work. I'm looking forward to a future book of Robb's that I'm sure will go into further detail either about Nadine's upcoming Oscar nomination for the first book/movie or the publication and what I'm sure will be subsequent movie of the second book. Enjoy! Weekend road trip, book 1! One of my favorite murder mystery series by the prolific JD Robb aka Nora Roberts. I discovered NAKED IN DEATH (#1) in 2003 and have been reading it ever since. So excited to see what adventure happens in #46! Pub date: January 2018
