One Lovely Blog Award

Thanks Eva, for awarding me with this lovely award!

Here is information about the award:
This award is given to new blogs and blogging friends.
The rules to follow are:
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

So, now I am to award 15 blogs.  Great googly-moogly!  I have to confess...  I don't know if I can honestly think of fifteen new and wonderful blogs.  Or, to put it more accurately, I certainly like to flit about checking out this blog and that, but when I start thinking about the sheer infinity of how much is out there it usually gives me a sensation of vertigo and reminds me of that ever-present feeling of mild panic which I continually suppress, "So. Many. Good. Books. To. Read.  Ack, ack, ack, how will I ever catch up??  (I won't.)  Aaaaaagh!"

Pretty soon, however, I started to get curious about where the award came from.  I think rather than nominating 15 new blogs, I'll take a look back at the last 15 to have won.  Here's where my sleuthing has led me so far.

1) I was nominated by Eva from Eva's Book Addiction, who was in turn nominated by,
2) Mrs. V's Reviews: A mom and middle-school teacher who reviews young adult fiction.
3) Pikealicious Books: Ashley, a librarian in Wisconsin, reviews books for children and teens.
4) Katie's Book Blog: Amazing blog, written by a 17 year old!  Want to know what teens are thinking?  Go straight to the source.
5) Black Rabbit Ink: Quotes, book reviews and more from aspiring writer, A.K.
6) Book Girl: Another amazing teen book reviewer!  She was actually nominated twice.  For my purposes, we'll follow the trail back from her original nomination, not the second one that came from Fantastic Book Reviews
7) Debbie's World of Books: She hosts frequent book give-aways and has already read an astonishing over 100 books (mostly YA) this year.  Wow.
8) True Crime Book Reviews: Yvette blogs all true crime, all the time.
9) Bella is Reading: Bella runs a couple of different blogs... this one is dedicated to her book reviews.
10) Mysteries in Paradise: Kerry is busy with the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge right now.  Check it out on her site.
11) Desert Rose: Musical, random, literary.
12) So Many Books, So Little Time: Contests, reviews, memes.  It's all here.
13) Wrighty's Reads: Debbie has lots and lots of contests with book give-aways.  And memes.  And book reviews.  It looks like she's been nominated a couple of times for the Lovely Blog Award (among several others).  But I believe the first nomination was from:
14) Book Bird Dog: Harvee reviews mysteries and other books.
15) Chick with Books: Suzanne runs a book club, and posts her thoughts about books she's reading.

Wow!  I start to feel a bit dizzy, when I think of all those blogs... and how they, in turn, link to at least a dozen or so more.  One might think that this was an award solely for book bloggers of all sorts, but it looks like that isn't so.  It's been making the rounds with us recently, but dig a little deeper, and I find it popping up in all kinds of places.  Mommy blogs.  Thrifty blogs.  Personal blogs.  Foodie blogs.

Right on!  Keep on blogging.  You're all lovely!
