Humane Awards-yes,more than one-awardzzzz!!!

Thank you Eleni
Thank You Natalie

So in 2 days I got awarded the Humane Award twice, first by Eleni at La Femme Readers and then by Natalie at The Book Inn.(clicking on the pics will take you directly to their award post.)

You might have guessed already that I lurrrve receiving awards and nominating other blogs to receive them.Apart from leaving comments it's my only other way to let my favorite bloggers know that I visit and read and love their blogs!!

The Humane Award is in order to honor certain bloggers that I feel are kindhearted individuals. They regularly take part in my blog and always leave the sweetest comments. If it wasn’t for them, my site would just be an ordinary book review blog. Their blogs are also amazing and are tastefully done on a daily basis. I thank them and look forward to our growing friendships through the blog world.

I am honored and ecstatic to receive this award from Natalie and Eleni and would like to nominate the following 20 blogs(I got 2 awards so I get to pick 20 blogs instead of usual 10) to receive this Humane Award.

2 Kids And Tired Book Reviews-Holly's blog is the one with the funny posts on how people find her via Google searches
A Bookworm's Reviews-Sharon is part of the Hang 'Em High Trio on this blog.I still think the 3 of them would make a great jury for the prosecution.
All I Want And More…-go read Cecile's review of Broken by Megan hart and then tell me you don't want to read this book!
Another Book Blog Whore-You have to go over to Kate's blog(don't call her Katie)and see how she came up with her blog's name.You will be surprised!!
Associacao De Bebedores Profissionais Do Gondufo-I had to include this one.He was the first ever to comment on this blog and I was so excited.All he left was "Good blog.Portugal" so I rushed over to check out his blog and it was in Portuguese.I noticed there were lots of different bottles of beer in the blog background so I called around to find out how to post in Portuguese "Good blog.South Africa.I love beer"(which I don't but you know what I mean)and so I posted my comment and he has NEVER been back here.For all I know his blog is about the evils of alcohol.
Bored…Get Unbored-If you need a mood upper then Lazy King will provide.Where he gets the funny stuff I don't know but I enjoy them!
ChainReading-Oh Shelley I loved your "Words Of A Reader" post.Aren't kids so entertaining!
Chaotic Compendiums-Caitlin,I haven't forgotten your Lemonade Award.I will be doing that post tomorrow and thank you!
Chick With Books-I can thank Suzanne for my Kindle because without her blog I would never have known they even existed.Suzanne is a very special blogger friend.Her posts are so interactive.She just knows how to do that and I am trying to learn from her.
Cindy's Love Of Books-I love Cindy's children's books reviews because I am ALWAYS looking for books to read to my little one.He hardly ever wants to "read" the same book twice.
Erotic Horizon-E.H. is also one of the Hang 'Em High Trio on this blog (AND a special blogger friend).Only thing I'm worried about is jury deliberations would stretch into months if she takes some of her books with.A great thing about E.H.'s blog is the interviews she has with other bloggers on her site.I am scheduled for an interview on 6 July and I am so nervous!
Global News-Lair360 was one of my first "real" followers on this blog as in non-coerced family member.
John Abuzz-You know how you know some people you would get along with although you have never met them in real life?John is one of those people for me.
Jubillie-Julie and I met off some other extremely popular site.Do you remember Julie?I have that site in my google reader list and he posts something once every 2 months but boy when he does there's like 100
comments straight away.How does he do that?
Life Is Too Short-Laura has got these amazing giveaways in between her reviews.Her blog is still fairly new so c'mon guys,go on over!
Linus's Blanket-Nicole,I really enjoyed your review on A Child's Journey Out Of Autism by LeeAnn Whiffen.Autism is something I absolutely fear and I am constantly on the lookout for signs of it.There's a rumor that autism can be brought on by the MMR vaccination and I haven't taken my little one for this one.How safe that is I don't know but like I said I am terrified at the thought of autism.
Miss Nobody's Scribbles-Miss Nobody's last post is so appropriate today with another AirBus gone down.I am terrified of flying and would love to go on holiday to the US but am still looking for a boat to take me there!
Missy's Book Nook-Missy is the last one of this blog's Hang 'Em High Trio.I love your comments,Missy!
Reading Frenzy-LuAnn is a freelance writer and I love her style of writing on her blog.Think of it,I would love to know if she has written a book.I think I would enjoy it!
The Blackcell-Heidi,how can I ever thank you for all you have done for this little blog?I know you are going to scream if I say thank you one more time,so I'm closing my ears all the way here in SA.

If you guys only knew what your comments mean to me.I used to struggle to wake up in the mornings but not since I started blogging.Because of the different time zones most of my comments come while I am sleeping so I literally JUMP out of bed to come check them out every morning.This is the absolute truth.I check them even before I brush my teeth or do anything else.My little office is outside so even in this year's coldest winter I have ever gone though in SA I put on my woollen cap,slip on my bedroom slippers and I am out of the house and into my little office!!
Here is the path I take:
Out the kitchen door and take a right.
This is the little pathway with my poor frozen plants on the right.
Then left through to door of my blogging domain.
And here we are! Can you see the big pile of filing I still have to do and yes,I am late with submitting my taxes.Will try this week!!
