What an Honor!

I'm so excited because I've been nominated for a blog award by S. Krishna. She said, "Booking Mama -- I am amazed at how many new books I am introduced to on Julie P.'s site - great reviews!" What a huge honor to know that someone out there feels that way about my blog!

Now it's my turn! This is really difficult because there are so many terrific book blogs out there that I am addicted to! Here's my list (not in any order):

1. -- I love Kristen's other site Book Club Classics, and I was thrilled to learn that she created a new book site especially for parents and teachers. Plus, she interviewed me about my Mother Daughter book club!

2. Everyday I Write the Book Blog - I love that she organizes a monthly on-line book club discussion! I really appreciate the community that she creates by doing this!

3. My Friend Amy - This girl is just amazing! She maintains multiple blogs and always seems to upbeat about life. I think she'd make a wonderful friend.

4. Age 30 - A Year in Books - I love Heather's reviews! I think she's spot on with her thoughts about books. Besides books, we also have something in common -- a young so with severe food allergies.

5. Bookroomreviews's Weblog - LOVE THIS BLOG! So many terrific reviews! If you're not already a fan, you have to check it out!

6. Cheryl's Book Nook - I visit this blog everyday and appreciate all of her wonderful comments on my blog!

7. West of Mars -- WOW! It's amazing how much work goes into tracking all of the contests out there. Anytime I notify her about a contest, it's posted in a matter of minutes. Talk about service!

Once an award is received, the rules are:

1. Put the logo on your blog.

2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.

3. Nominate at least seven other blogs.

4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.

5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

Thanks again S. Krishna-- I really appreciate this!
