The Versatile Blogger Award

I’m back! ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Sorry for the unexpected hiatus this month, but the combination of life getting busy and me feeling really slumpy, I just couldn’t focus long enough to get some posts up. But, I finally finished a book so its put me in the blogging mood. Plus, I missed talking books with all you wonderful booklovers!

So I thought I’d start off with an easy post to get me back in the grove.

A couple of weeks ago I was nominatedย by Lois and David at Lois Reads Books for the Versatile Blogger Award which is incredibly thoughtful. You should definitely check out their blog if you haven’t already – its full of wonderful bookish content. Thanks again for the nomination guys! ๐Ÿ™‚

The Rules:

  • Display the award on your blog.
  • Thank the blogger that nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Share 7 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 10 bloggers for the award and provide links to their blog.

Facts About Me:

  1. I have a graduate degree in History, and I teach American History as an adjunct professor at a University (in addition to my full-time job.)
  2. My favorite color is purple – so if I’m buying some and there is a color option 9 times out of 10 I’m going with the purple version.
  3. I have an 8 year old son who loves to read almost as much as I do. We are currently reading our way through the Harry Potter series, and we just started book 7. Needless to say, he’s not a big fan of JK Rowling at the moment. Haha.
  4. I turn 29 next month.ย Eeek!
  5. I tune out the entire world when I’m reading – and if someone attempts to get my attention, it usually takes 2 or 3 tries.
  6. I almost never leave home without a book since I usually carry my current read in my purse. You never know when you’re going to find yourself with 15 extra minutes that you could be reading.
  7. I regularly stay up waaayyy too late to finish a book even though I know I’m going to be super tired the next day. I just have to know how everything ends before I can sleep.


I Nominate:

Shanah – Bionic Book Worm

Luna – GamersUnitedGG Blog

Swetlana – Reading Through the Nights

Amanda – Metalphantasmreads

If you’ve already been nominated for this – you don’t have to do it again, just know that I think your blog is awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

There you have it the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you again to Lois and Davidย for nominating me!

  1. I should make it more of a habit to take a book with me wherever I go! I usually only have one on me when I am going to see my doctor because I know the waiting time is ridiculous and I might as well read while I wait!

    And oh I do feel you on the staying up too late to finish a book part! Sometimes me being dead tired wins, but usually I will power through and finish the book! Earlier this year I read an entire book in one sitting and only got to bed at around 4AM I think. Needless to say, I was really tired the next day.

    Thank you so much for nominating me! I can’t wait to do this on the blog soon! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Congrats and happy (early) birthday!! ๐Ÿ˜€
    That’s awesome that you have a little reading buddy with your son. I’m sure he’ll cherish those memories spent reading with you all his life. My mom and I always went book shopping together when I was a kid and I have so many great memories with her because of it. ๐Ÿ™‚
