We're Honored to Receive the Liebster Blog Award!

One of our faithful followers, Readingjunky, was good enough to pass on an award to us back in August. It's The Liebster Blog Award, given to blogs with less than 200 followers. The purpose is to"shine a spotlight" on blogs that someone thinks should get more attention. We're honored that you thought of us, Readingjunky! Thanks a whole bunch! (and I'm sorry it's taken so long to acknowledge it--library life has been incredibly busy)One of the purposes of this award, though, is to pass it on to others. In fact, they want recipients to give this award to 5 other blogs. That's easy enough because there are lots and lots of good book blogs out there. So here goes:

Ms. Yingling Reads--a truly terrific blog that also focuses on guy reading!

SMS Guys Read--another of my favorites, run by a teacher and his boys' book club

The Lemme Library--a very fun blog, with good book reviews and general cool stuff

What All the Kids Are Reading--another blog with lots of good reviews of interesting books

Chocolate Air--it says that "Reading is like breathing chocolate air!" How can you not like a blog with such a logo?

Here's one more-- a terrific site for guy readers--TMC Guys Read (another site run by a teacher and his boys' book club)

And here's yet one more site. I can't nominate it because the Iron Guy and a friend work on it in their spare time (it wouldn't be right to nominate myself for this award) but it's a rocking site that every reader guy in the universe should know about--Boys Rock, Boys Read!

Thanks once again, Readingjunky, and be sure to check out these sites, guys!

Thanks, Iron Guy! This introduced me to some new blogs, as well.

Thanks! I needed that little bit of encouragement to get through this week. And I'm glad it took you so long to pass it on-- I also feel ultra organized now! I have the strength to tackle the overhead projectors!

Wowzer! This award is just as good as a book and a bar of chocolate! :)

Thanks for recognizing blogs that might have a smaller following but a big love of books and reading!

I love pointing readers--especially boys--to your blog.
