Great Blog Neighbor Award

Casey over at The Bookish Type recently bestowed upon Her Book Self the "Great Blog Neighbor Award"!  Since I only went public with this blog on May 1st, I was extremely flattered by this small recognition from a book blogging peer.  (And now would be a perfect time to check out The Bookish Type if you have not done so already - I was first drawn to The Bookish Type for "Monsters in May" and I'm eagerly awaiting the reviews to come with this month's "Jane in June".)  In the spirit of paying it forward - as seems to be the tradition with awards like this - I want to pass the "Great Blog Neighbor Award" on to three really awesome fellow bloggers:


A Present Opened Again and Again...  (by Ellen) is a wonderful blog about books for children and, as the title indicates, the thoughtful reviews are a good reminder about how books for youngsters are easily enjoyed by readers of all ages.

Ticket To Anywhere (by Irish) is a blog whose title extols the passport nature of literature.  Along with the fun feature of Book Trailer Mondays, there are frequent "interviews" with book characters, which I found to be an interesting and creative way of reviewing books.

A Bit of Light Reading (by biblioholic) is one reader's chapter-by-chapter thoughts on J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.  It perfectly fits the theme of this award: "Bringing Book Readers Together One Blog @ a Time!" 

Thanks again to The Bookish Type for this award and congratulations to the new recipients!

    That's so sweet! Believe it or not, yours is the only book blog I read regularly, so right now I have no one with whom to share this--unless I give it back to you!

    Thanks Lisa! I'm taking some time to figure out who I can pass it on too, because while I do follow several other book blogs, none of them post more than once a month!

    Both of you very much deserve it! It's not so much about passing it on as it as just about sharing the smiles - and your blogs bring me plenty! *Hugs*

    I really like the way you gave a little blurb about the blogs you mentioned! I'm definitely going to check them all out - they sound awesome! =)
