Mailbox Monday and an AWARD!

Well, it's Mailbox Monday and I actually have something to report. Thursday, I received a copy of Laurie R. King's The Moor. This is another book in her Mary Russell series, detailing the marriage between Ms. Russell and Sherlock Holmes. I Mooched this book a couple of weeks ago. I have one or two others in the series, although I haven't read them yet. They look good enough, though, that I want to get all of them and check out the whole series.

Unfortunately, that's all I brought home this week!



I was lucky enough to have been given the Blog Friends Award by Staci at Life in the Thumb! This is my first blog award and I am SO EXCITED! Here's what it's all about:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

I'm supposed to tag eight people. There are so many people that I read and love, but I'll try to tag those with whom other readers may not be as familiar...

SuziQOregon at Whimpulsive

Heather at Book Addiction

Bellezza at Dolce Bellezza

Sharon at Ex Libris

Framed at Framed and Booked

Megan at Leafing through Life

Mary at Mary's Library

and

Morsie (Karen) at Morsie Reads

There are so many more people I could have tagged, but I'll get them all the next time around. Check these folks out; their blogs are informative and, of course, full of great books!

Oh, Lexi, that's so sweet! Thanks for including me in all the love. I've read Laurie R. King's "The Beekeeper's Apprentice", but that's all I've read of the Mary Russell series. I like mystery a lot, but I haven't felt compelled to read many more. Anyway, I hope you like "The Moor". I haven't posted a Monday's Mailbox on my blog ever; you've set a seed in my mind to think about it sometime in the future. Thanks for being my blogging friend!

Thank you Lexi! I'm in such good company. Love the cotton candy on Whimpulsive, the photos at the top of Book Addiction and Dolce Bellezza, the quote at the top of Leafing Through Life, and Framed and Booked's blog name. What a great way to find new blogs.
