Three Awards for me! and now, finally, my Nominees.

I have received three awards in the last month since I started blogging. I feel very honored. Thank you! Meanwhile I have been madly collecting wonderful blogs to read, and to nominate - which is why it has taken so long to post the first two awards. Just a bit obsessive here. :)

Each of the blogs that I have nominated are taken from my Google reader (I can't believe that I did not know what a reader was a month ago.) I have tried to make a point of nominating blogs with smaller followings. And for those of you that are more established - your next. As for you guys.... I didn't think a girly award would be for you.... so we'll have to come up with something here soon.

My first award is the Lemonade Award and was given to me by Yvette from True Crimes. Thank you Yvette. Yvette has an important and informative blog where she highlights true crime books. Check her out!

The Lemonade Award is a feel good award that shows great attitude or gratitude. Here are the rules for accepting this award:
Put the Lemonade Award logon on your blog or post.
Nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude or gratitude.
Link your nominees within your post.
Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
Share the love and link to the person from whom you received the award.

Here is my list of nominees:
Alexa at Hooked on YA Books
Susie Sunshine from The Geeky Bookworm
Linds at funny because its true
Crystal at ACTUALIZE
Mel at I'm Not Weird, Just Gifted
Caspette at Narrative Causality
When I read I get to Travel
Jenny at Interior Design Junky
Megan at Reading Through Life
Shona's Book Shelf

The second award that I have received is The Hearthfelt Award and was given to me by Donna from Fantasy Dreamer. Thanks Donna. Donna has a fun and sexy blog for paranormal romance and beyond. Take a look at her blog.

The Hearthfelt Award:
Do you reach for a cup of cocoa or tea when your relaxing, seeking comfort, sharing a plate of cookies with family and freinds? You know the feeling you get when you drink a yummy cup of cocoa, tea, or a hot toddy? That is what the Hearthfelt Award is all about, feeling warm inside.
Put the logo on your blog/post.
Nominate up to to 9 blogs which make you feel comfy or warm inside.
Be sure to link your nominees withing your post.

This is a meme, and here are the rules:
If you accept it, you are to list seven favorite things and nominate seven bloggers for the award.

My seven favorite things:
Books - no surprise here!
