I am humbled.....

Most of you reading this post are very well acquainted with the BBAW event: Book Blogger Appreciation Week that will be held September 14-18. This celebration of book bloggers is the brainchild of My Friend Amy and I simply cannot imagine the amount of "behind the scenes" work she and her team of helpers must do to ensure a smooth, successful event. She deserves a HUGE round of applause (clap clap)

I was notified this week that I was nominated for two categories: Best New Blog and Best Reviews. I don't know which one of you kind souls out there thought enough of my blog to nominate me, but I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I was asked to submit a list of 5 blog posts that I thought most pertained to my nominated category, and then Amy's team of helpers will read through all the posts, analyze them, and develop a 'short list' of final contestants. While I have no expectation of making the short list (there are too many wonderful blogs out there), I am truly grateful to have my humble blog nominated.

And...if that weren't enough for one week, I was notified this morning that Cathy of Kittling: Books has bestowed her I Keep Coming Back for More! Award to My Cozy Book Nook. The following is a description of the award:


The I Keep Coming Back for More! Award is for a blog you just can't stay away from. If you've been busy and your Google reader is over 1,000 unread posts, these are the blogs that you single out to read. These are the ones that are never victims to the dreaded Mark All As Read. There may be many different reasons why you can't stay away: a taste in books that mirrors your own, the same sense of humor, always knowing the latest in the book world... for whatever the reason, these blogs are flat out addictive and you have no wish to be cured!
Cathy, I truly cannot thank you enough for this recognition. And.....if you haven't visited Cathy's blog, I guarantee she is a worthy recipient of the award as well!

Congratulations, Molly. You do have an outstanding book blog. I, too, was nominated for a few BBAW awards, which is wonderful in itself, no matter what the outcome.

I am hosting a giveaway on my blog for an Amazon gift card in honor of BBAW, and hope you and your readers will stop by my blog to enter!
