In Which I Thank God and the Academy

Sometimes it’s really nice to have proof that your words aren’t just tumbling aimlessly through the interwebs. I always get a little thrill when I see comments and it’s especially exciting to get blog awards!

The talented Kelly Hashway gifted me with two awards. The first, the Booker Award, is cool because it’s for blogs that are least 50% about books (either reading or writing.) That means I’m only blathering about unrelated nonsense half the time! 🙂

I have to share my 5 favorite books (and y’all know how I just hate making lists):

  1. THE COLOR PURPLE by Alice Walker
  2. BABY OF THE FAMILY by Tina McElroy Ansa
  3. JUST FRIENDS by Norma Klein
  4. ANIMAL FARM by George Orwell
  5. THE TWITS by Roald Dahl

Next up: The Fabulous Blog Ribbon and (yay!) more lists.
