What me? Stylish?

 Thank you very much Kat over at A Journey in Reading honored me today with this blogger award.  I am always humbled when I get an award because I never feel worthy.

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

So let's see...seven things about me?
1.  I went to the University of Oregon (The Ducks!) and was thrilled that our football team did so well this year.  It is not an insult if you Quack at me.
2.  I love my job as a high school librarian even though I have a few kids who are "addicted" to my book recommendations.  Three kids in the last two weeks have told me that they won't read a book unless I recommend it.  My-my.
3.  I got my sister a darling black Pomeranian for Christmas through a very weird series of events.  The dog looks just like Duchess in The Pie and Patty Pan by Beatrix Potter.
4.  My husband and I are famous, within the family anyway, for our BBQ salmon and marinade.
5.  I dressed up like Mother Superior for the Sound of Music Sing-a-long in Seattle on New Year's Day.  Fun and funny.
6.  I consider myself to be a Janite (a huge Jane Austen fan.)
7.  I'm in two all-female book clubs.
My family and I at the Sound of Music Sing-a-long.

  1. That was very sweet of you- Thank you :) Are your book clubs for YA or adult books, or a little bit of everything?

  2. You have to post the photo of you from New Years! And I love the fact that the kids depend on your recommendations! THAT makes you worthy!
    Have a great day!


  3. Thank you so much for the award! I am enjoying reading your blog (I've only been following for a couple weeks)

  4. Congratulations! You are so stylish & worthy :) That's so wonderful that your students (even just a couple) take your recommendations to heart. Count your lucky stars!

  5. Thanks for the award! I think pomeranians are the cutest dogs ever.
    Congrats on the award :)

  6. Thanks for reaffirming my stylishness! And congrats to you!

  7. Thank you so much for passing along the award and congratulations yourself. Love the clip! Look forward to reading many, many more of your posts. Have a great week!

  8. Oh.... and most of the books I get are books that I buy in hard copy, for my Kindle, or from the library.. What can I say, I'm a book-a-holic.... Wonder if there is an intervention for that?
