Spreading the Love

For those of you keeping track, yes, this week I was scheduled to host another installment of By the Chapter with Marcia. However, we decided to take this week off - we were both so affected by The Cellist of Sarajevo last week that we were afraid this week's discussion might not be as good as we'd like. No worries, I'll be back hosting with her in May. =)

Today, I'd like to spread a little of the love that has been sent my way lately. I've been given two awards by a couple of great bloggers, and I wanted to share them with you.

First, from the fabulous Aerin at In Search of Giants, I received the Let's Be Friends Award:

Blogs that received the Let's Be Friends Award are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers.

And then from the lovely Aliison at Allison's Attic, I received the One Lovely Blog Award:

This award which is given to new blogs and blogging friends.

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 in honor of the wonderful Read-A-Thon that just took place over the weekend, I'm going to pass this on to some of the wonderful blogs I found while cheerleading for the Readers on Saturday.
