More Awards from the Sweetest People!

Sheri over at A Novel Menagerie gave me this adorable award she said:

Jen’s blog has been on my subscribe feed since I first started blogging. I’m just fond of her blogs, in general. Her writing is cozy and safe… and just fun to visit. She’s so creative and always has changes going on in her blogs.

Isn't she the sweetest? I'm supposed to write five things I'm addicted to and then pass this on to five other blogs so here goes!

  1. Reading of course! I always try to keep a book I want to read handy- which is way too easy lol.

  2. Blogging- I enjoy finding little gems (movies and books) and finding out more about them too.

  3. Music- Here's a little tidbit for you, did you know that my blog started out as The Movieholic, Bibliophile, and Music Junkie? I had a hard time writing up posts about albums I was listening to and I dropped it. Hmmm... maybe that should be a weekly feature over here on this blog?

  4. My Family- I can't get along without my husband and cat. My mom lives in another state from me so I don't get to see her and the rest of the family very often but if I don't call at least two or more times a week, I get so homesick its not even funny.

  5. My TV Shows- Oh how I love thee! I pine over them when they're cancelled and can hardly wait for them to come back on when they take a break between seasons. My current list of shows: Burn Notice, CSI: Miami, Cold Case, Criminal Minds, Ghost Whisperer, Hell's Kitchen, NCIS, Project Runway, Shear Genius, Sons of Anarchy, Top Chef, True Blood
    Shows I used to watch (and still like!) but not so much now: Dexter, Grey's Anatomy, House, the Law and Orders, Nip/Tuck, Private Practice, The Unit
    My favorite cancelled shows: Buffy, Angel, Veronica Mars, Moonlight, Blood Ties

I'd like to give this award to the bloggers I've known the longest:
Musings of a Bookish Kitty (Wendy), the bookworm (Naida), J. Kaye's Book Blog (J. Kaye), Hello, My Name Is Alice (Alice Teh), Here, There, and Everywhere 2nd edition (DesLily)

Another sweet person is DesLily! She gave me The Dardos Award and said:

And then there would be LadyTink, who single handedly is trying to get young people to realize that the old movies are worth watching! I love to hear her joy when she writes about discovering an old movie or talks about the actors that mainly only the elderly know. It does my heart good to know the old movies are not forgotten.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Okay I'm certainly not sweet lol but as DesLily once said, I'm "spreading that fairy dust again!" This is an award I personally made to reflect me a little and I originally gave it away last year to my main commenters. Now since I started Google Reader I've "met" quite a few more people and I'd like to send this their way (this is going to be a doozy of a list). I may not get everybody this go 'round either (and I may accidently skip you as well- don't worry, you're not being snubbed) but I'd like a few more people to have this just the same:

Beyond Books, living read girl, The THRILLIONTH page, Bermudaonion's Weblog, Peeking Between the Pages, Presenting Lenore, Just One More Page..., Maw Books Blog, things mean a lot, Shaunie's Happy Place, Stephanie's Confessions of a Book-a-holic, Fyrefly's Book Blog, Books 'N Border Collies, Reading With Monie, Diary of an Eccentric, Pop Culture Junkie, Wendy's Minding Spot, Books and Movies (Carrie), A Novel Menagerie, Fizzy Thoughts, Back to Books, Enchanted by Books (aka What I'm Reading...), not enough books, Savvy Verse & Wit, A Bookworm's World, A Reader's Respite, Dolce Bellezza, Sam's Book Blog, She Is Too Fond Of Books ..., Un-Mainstream Mom Reads, The Written World, an adventure in reading, Rebecca Reads, where troubles melt like lemon drops, Strumpet's Life, Beth Fish Reads, Me and You and a Blog Named Boo, Cavalcade of Awesome.
See, told you I'd miss someone! she reads and reads

I hope when you have time, you will drop by. Any suggestions welcome! I have a contest ending Sunday and another giveaway beginning the same day (enter, I have very few entrants!). I also am a 37 year REAING teacher retiring in June and so I review children's books at least once a week as Professor Bingo! Thanks, Bingo http://bookinwithbingo.blogspot.com
