4. Books – buying, reading, and giving!

5. Walks with my hubby

6. Jigsaw puzzles

7. Coffee


Humane AwardThis was passed on to me by Michael at A Few Minutes With Michael and Hilarie at Never Not Reading.  Michael is a new blogger, but is already showing what an asset he is to the book blogging community. 

The Humane Award is to honor certain bloggers that 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. This award is to thank them for their growing friendships through the blog world.

 And here are 3 very worthy blogs.  Violet @ Violet Crush, Teddy @The Eclectic Reader, Bonnie at Redlady’s Reading Room


Teaser Tuesday- When Venus Fell

teasertuesdays31Grab your current read.  Open to a random page.  Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.  BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!).  Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This was no small thing, in the southern sense of that word.  If a person visited a home in the South for any length of time, whether for a mere one-night stay or weeks, months, even years of habitation, that visitor achieved the status of Company, meaning he or she received deluxe treatment.

This is my final book for the Southern Reading Challenge and I am really enjoying it!  So, what pages are you turning this week?

Visit MizB for more teasers.
