Catching up with Awards

It's another rainy fall day, but much sunshine has been spread around through awards this month! I'll just take a moment to say thank you...

First is the Honest Scrap Award.
It comes from Heather at Gofita's Pages. The Honest Scrap Award is for those bloggers who write from the heart. I met Heather through the Everything Austen Challenge (she's done an amazing job!), and always enjoy visiting her blog for book reviews, movie reviews, and so much more!

The Splash Award is given to alluring, amusing, bewitching, impressive, and inspiring blogs. This came my way from Kim at Chapter Chit Chat. I just 'met' Kim this fall and really enjoy her blog! From the reviews, to the memes and other fun happenings, it's always fun to visit. She's currently working her way through a book I loved - The Count of Monte Cristo.

The Lemonade Award is a feel good award that shows great attitude or gratitude. Kals from At Pemberly gave me this award. Kals is another blogger I met through the Everything Austen Challenge. Don't you just love the name of her blog? She recently celebrated a birthday (a day she shares with my twin sisters!) Stop by and say hello ...and check out her costume for the Pemberly Ball!

This last award was actually from September (I'm further behind than I thought!) and also came from Heather at Gofita's Pages.

Blogs that receive the Let’s Be Friends Award are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.

Thank you Heather, Kim, and Kals for thinking of me. It's been my pleasure to get to know each of you through your blogs. Instead of passing these awards on individually, I'd like to acknowledge my friends participating in the read-a-thon today. Whether you're reading, cheerleading, hosting, or involved in any way at all, these awards are for you! Good luck and have fun...

To wrap up, I also wanted to mention that an awards page is in the works. There will soon be a link on the sidebar that will take you to a page displaying all of these lovely awards. I hope you're all enjoying the read-a-thon, and look forward to participating myself in April!
