Seriously Cute Blogger

While I was blathering on about me, myself and I, and my family history, Julie Kemp Pick from Empty Nest Insider slipped into my blog and dropped an award on me. Can you imagine that? I didn't ask, beg or plead to get it. I didn't have to make her feel sorry for me, or guilty about not including me or even bribe her!

Hey ... maybe she just likes me?!? Nah .... :-)

Thanks, Julie.

In receiving this adorable award (did you see how very cute the dog is?), I was asked to recommend a book that I am reading. Well ... I am just thrilled to do that.

I just joined Audible and my first audiobook is Book 1 in the series The Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. This is a massive series best described by Booklist in a single sentence.

"The first volume in Martin's first fantasy saga
combines intrigue, action, romance, and mystery in a family saga."

I also understand that HBO is filming this series. I love historic stories, books, movies ... costume dramas are my very favorite.

I know it is appropriate to pass these awards along to others, mostly as a way of sharing the blog sites of wonderful bloggers to others.

I want to pass this award on to a reader friend of mine. She keeps a running list of books she is reading on her blog. I am sure you will find some fun titles there.

So with no more ado ... I pass this award onto my blogger friend, my knitting friend, a walker extraordinary, the one who inspired me to start my own blog, a great reader, and who is actually seriously cute!

HappyOne is her blogger name
