NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

OMG!! Thank you!!!



When I wrote my meme in anticipation of this year's Book Blogger Appreciation Week, I said that my highlight of last year's BBAW was being nominated for Best History/Historical Fiction Blog. That was awesome!

But this year I've been nominated for five awards!! I'm so excited I can hardly sit in my chair and type this!! I've been nominated for:

Best History/Historical Blog
Best Literary Fiction Blog
Most Concise
Most Eclectic Taste
Best Commentor


How cool is that?? I want to thank everyone who took the time to nominate not only me but all the other great bloggers out there who spend their free time sharing their lives and their love of books with all of us. Whether I win any of these great awards or not, I want you all to know the nominations mean the world to me because they come from you, my blogging peers who make my reading even more fun that it would be all by myself. Thank you!! And good luck to all the nominees for the 2009 Book Blogger Appreciation Week Awards!!

Heather ~ I was happy to see your nomination, too! These are so fun!

Trish ~ I'm not sure if they're all out or not. Since the links have to be back to the panel by midnight Friday, if they're not all out now, I'm guessing they will be very quickly. These awards are a huge job! Kudos to all of those who are keeping track of all of it! :-)

Congratulations on all your hard work. I haven't been blogging very long, and I already realize what a big job it is. You must put a lot of thought and time into it, and it's paying off. Just don't decide to rest on your laurels and retire on us, OK?

Lezlie said...

Thanks again, everybody! And I just found out last night I've been nominated for a *fourth* award! You guys are awesome!

Teri ~ No rest for the wicked, right? :-) I'm just getting warmed up. I plan on blogging for a long time to come. I hope many of you do, too!
