Oh my gosh I’m feeling extra special this week and I could sure use it so I am so grateful to all my blogging buddies. I have received numerous more award acknowledgements since my last award post so I’m doing another post.
I received this very special award from Serena at Savvy Verse & Wit for an award called The Premio Dardos Award. The Prémio Dardos is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web. Serena, I feel truly honored that you feel my blog and I match up to the qualities in this award and I’m truly speechless that I make you proud to be a part of this community. The same is true for me. Your blog is fantastic. Your reviews are so well thought out and interesting along with everything else you do on your blog. You know yours is one of my first visits of everyday! In honor of this award I will strive even harder to bring more good reviews everybody’s way! I’m supposed to award this to 15 people-wow that’s a lot of thinking on my part but I’ll try…If I didn’t pick your blog for it but visit regularly please know that I do think everyone should get this award but these are my picks for now. First, I would totally award it back to Serena of course.
- Nymeth of Things Mean a Lot-she has an amazing way with words and her reviews are the some of the best I read. She also reviews books that I normally wouldn’t read and I love that.
- Ramya’s Bookshelf-Ramya writes really great reviews. They are always indepth with her own personal style woven in. She reads a lot of different books that I wouldn’t normally even find and for that I love to visit.
- Presenting Lenore-my gosh Lenore has such a great blog with great reviews and so many other things and let’s not forget those absolutely awesome pics of Emmy that I love so much!
- ReadingAdventures-Marg is relatively new to me but now that I’ve found her blog she’s stuck with me-lol. She reads and reviews a lot of historical fiction that I may not find on a normal basis and I love discovering them after her great reviews.
- She is Too Fond of Books-Dawn has great reviews along with other great posts and I love the Spotlight on Bookstores that she does.
- J. Kaye’s Book Blog-I know she receives a lot of awards but she deserves them. She brings the blogging community together in so many ways and this year she has her hands full with more than a few challenges-lol. J. Kaye is a wonderful person always willing to help others and her blog is full of so many great posts!
- A Reader’s Respite-Michele’s blog is new to me. I discovered her blog after getting her as my Secret Santa recipient. I’m so glad I did because her reviews are great and a lot of her other posts as well that make us think about things. Diversifying my Bookshelves is another great post she does. She too is now stuck with me-lol.
- Literarily-Shana has an amazing blog full of comprehensive reviews and much more. I always look forward to her Sunday Salon for reviews of her reading and updates and pictures of the family. I’m not sure how she keeps up to it all but she does it well.
- Books ‘N Border Collies-Lezlie’s is one of the first blogs I visited and I’ve kept going ever since. She has great reviews, loves historical fiction, and has some of the cutest furkids going.
- Diary of an Eccentric-Anna has a fabulous blog full of great reviews and lots of other good stuff. She reviews a lot of books again that I wouldn’t normally find and I like being introduced to that new stuff. I also really enjoy news and reviews of The Girl.
- Fizzy Thoughts-I know I just gave you an award the other day but you’re getting another one. Jill has great reviews and other really good posts. She has a quirky sense of humor I love and I like that she brings honesty to her book reviews.
- Giving Reading a Chance-again I know I just gave you an award but you totally deserve this one too. Veens is a joy to the bloggers that know her. She always has a kind word and is so upbeat and friendly. She also has a great blog and I love to read her reviews.
- Maw Books Blog-this is a fantastic blog. Her reviews are amazing as is her bringing together of the blogging community to help others. Again I get introduced to books I may not normally come across on my own and I love that.
- The Literate Housewife-really amazing reviews. I sometimes wish I could write a review with the talent of Jennifer. I enjoy reading them along with other posts that she puts up. Just a really great blog and person!
- Trish’s Reading Nook-she brings us some great books along with great reviews to go with them. You get to read reviews of a lot of books not making the rounds of blogs and I think that’s great. Trish also hosts the Classics Challenge and I think it’s important to bring the classics back into people’s lives (even though I didn’t finish my challenge-lol). Thanks Trish!
Go ahead and join in you all and award this to 15 people you think this award should go too!________________________________________________________

These are all great blogs and you should check them out.
I was also awarded the Great Buddy Award by Veens at Giving Reading a Chance and Naida at The Bookworm. Thanks so much ladies. This one I award to all of you reading my blog on a regular basis and you know who you are.
If I forgot anyone who awarded me something I am so sorry. I was trying to remember while I was out of commission with my eye but I should have written them down because my memory isn’t what it used to be. lol. Thanks to you all who give me awards. I appreciate and love them all along with the great bloggers and friends who award them!
