To top it off, I log in and see that Jessica over at A BookLover's Diary nominated me for an award. My very first blogger award!
"The Humane Award is in order to honor certain bloggers that I feel are kindhearted individuals. They regularly take part in my blog and always leave the sweetest comments. If it wasn’t for them, my site would just be an ordinary book review blog. Their blogs are also amazing and are tastefully done on a daily basis. I thank them and look forward to our growing friendships through the blog world.”
I'm flying high from this award and open my e-mail and notice a message from none other than Kirsten Olson, author of Wounded by School, for which I just posted my review last night! As it appears she had problems leaving a comment, I had to share her message:
Thanks for that wonderful review of my book in your blog. It’s one of the best I’ve ever read! I tried to post a comment up on your blog, but kept not being accepted. So thank you right here.
I liked what you said so much (insightful and heartfelt) about your own son I posted it up on my website. Good luck with your son. He is lucky to have you as his mom.
Kirsten Olson, Ed.D.

I am literally flying on a natural high right now. I honestly started this blog to give me something to do after graduation and give me purpose for all the books I read. To have others notice my efforts, let alone the authors, is more than I ever dreamed possible when I started this site in January.
So, thank you to all my friends who helped answer my questions about blogging and gave me encouragement from the very beginning. I would have never felt as content and fulfilled as I do now. With that, I nominate the following for their own Humane Award:
Stephanie at Stephanie's Confessions of a Book-a-holic
Deb at Pardon my French
Teddy at So Many Precious Books, So Little Time
Christina at book-a-rama
Tammy at Tammy's Book Nook
You are all my muses!!
