I’d Like to Thank the Academy…

Actually, I’d like to thank Ms. Emily Crowe of As the Crowe Flies (and Reads!) for passing on the Versatile Blogger Award! This is my first award on my new blog, and I’m thrilled to receive it from a friend, fellow blogger, and person whose opinion I trust. And now, to pay it forward…

The rules of the award are as follows:

1.  Share 7 things about ourselves.

a. I love flying, especially that moment at takeoff, because I find it exhilarating to have no control over whether I live or die.
b. I love high-heeled shoes but almost never wear them.
c. If I ever get married, I would like pies instead of cake at my wedding.
d. I prefer myself in contacts rather than glasses, but love glasses on other people.
e. I have lived in Massachusetts for 7 years but have yet to get an in-state license. (No, that is not because I like my driver’s license picture. It’s because I hate the DMV.)
f. My last meal: appetizer: my mother’s spanikopita with a glass of my favorite Pinot Grigio; soup: my mother’s chicken soup with matzoh balls; main course: filet mignon – medium/rare, seared tuna steak so it has a thin cooked layer of seasoning but is raw on the inside, garlic mashed potatoes with gravy & butter, french cut green beans with toasted almonds, shot of Jack; dessert: my grandmother’s cherry pie with one pumpkin, walnut, chocolate chip cookie on the side; shot of Patron silver.
g. Though I like giving my opinion, I’m uncomfortable making seven “I” statements in a row.

2.  Pass the award on to 10 bloggers recently discovered.

a. Bibliophile Brouhaha
b. Walk the Ridgepole
c. There’s a Book
d. The Grammarian’s Reviews
e. The Broke and the Bookish
f. Got Books?
g. Female Illustrators of the Mid-20th Century
h. Book of Secrets
i. Bloggin’ ’bout Books
j. Between the Covers

3.  Notify the blogger recipients. – Done
4.  Link to the blogger who gave us the award. – and Done (see above)

What a great post-Thanksgiving pick-me-up.

  3. Your last meal sounds like it would last a LONG time. But I guess that's the point, right? Now I'm off to investigate the blogs you paid it forward to since I don't know most of 'em…

Book review time! 
The Story of Diva and Flea
By Mo Willems + Tony DiTerlizzi
Loved this as a read-aloud for little ones that can sit still for longer picture books, or, as it's a beginning chapter book, great for ages 6-8 who are learning how to read more confidently by themselves.

#poemaday #nationalpoetrymonth #haiku #kerouac #wildlyread #poem #poetry First day of full-time hours in my new job as a bookseller for an independent bookstore, and it's staff pick time! I fell in love with this book years ago, before the movie was even a dream. Though I'm not a fan of the movie tie-in cover, I'll gladly place this book in readers' hands. . . .
