This and That (new winner, awards, e-reader giveaways)

I thought I would update, share and exclaim over a few tidbits.

First of all, I had to select another winner for the Simon’s Cat giveaway. So, without further ado:

Congrats to Marie from Kids, Cats, Books and Chaos!


I was lucky enough to receive a couple of awards.

oohlala_awardThe “Ooh La La! I adore your blog!” award came from J. Kaye and it does come with a few questions attached.

  1. Where is your favorite place to read a book? That would be on my comfy chair in the living room.
  2. Bookmarks or dog ears? Both actually. I buy mostly used books and I will dog ear those if the book lover before me already had some ear flaps of their own. New books or those in super condition always get a bookmark.
  3. What is the best book you have read so far this year? Oh my, this is a difficult one. Off the top of my head, The Road, Kafka on the Shore, Good Omens, I Am Legend and Her Fearful Symmetry come to mind but are by no means my only favorites.
  4. Do you like to snack while reading and if so, what is your favorite snack? I usually have a cup of tea but surprisingly, not a big snacker. I do not want my hands occupied by anything else. They need to be available at all times to hold a book and turn a page.
  5. Book borrower or book collector? Collector, collector, collector!! Wait a minute, I need to pick up that pile of books that has toppled.

I now pass this award onto:

Calico Contemplations

Natalie from The Book Inn

Stacy from Stacy’s Books


onelovelyblogawardThe next award came from Tam of Bailey’s and Books. For this award, the rules are to award it to 15 other bloggers I have newly discovered. This is by no means a conclusive list of those blogs I love. Here goes:
