Audrey & an Award

Many of you know that I like old movies and Audrey Hepburn.  Well, I ‘ve been thinking of challenge for me (and for you if you are  interested) for 2010 featuring the beautiful Audrey.  And then I won a button from Katrina at Bloody Bad and decided to try it out.  There are two I really like and I’d like to know which one you like best.  Please leave a comment and let me know. 


Aren’t they both great?  Thanks, Katrina!  Are you teased enough to check out the challenge next month? 🙂



Christine at booktumbling passed this along to me.  I always enjoy her blog and I greatly appreciate that she thought of me.  It comes with a few questions…

  • Where is your favorite place to read a book?  Our front room when the sun is shining in, our family room cuddled under a blanket or in the hot tub in the middle of the day (for when I’m feeling decadent :)).
  • Bookmarks or dog ears? Bookmarks, but will dog ear if desperate.
  • What is the best book you have read so far this year? The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Alexie, The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom, The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd are the 3 I have given 5 stars to this year (I’m stingy).
  • Do you like to snack while reading and if so, what is your favorite snack? Not really a snack.  A glass of wine or a cup of hot tea is nice.
  • Book borrower or book collector?  Both!  I refuse to discriminate against any book 🙂
  • I always hate to choose among so many wonderful blogs, but I do think it’s nice to showcase a favorite blog when I get the chance, so I’m awarding the Ohh La La!  I Adore Your Blog! award to Heather at Gofita’s Pages.  Her blog is fun and fresh and if you haven’t stopped by you should!

    1. Stacy,
      Check your picture links. The two buttons aren’t showing. Of course, it could be me. I’ll check back later.

      Hmm. They’re showing here. I’ll check back in a bit.

    2. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m on my laptop, but I can’t see the buttons. Congratulations on your award! By the way, I’m stingy with 5 stars too.

    3. I can see the second button, but not the first! I’m going to check out The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian!

    4. No book discrimination – good rule!!! Stinginess with 5 stars – another good rule! I see others have said they cannot see the buttons and I cannot see them either. Weird!

    5. I’m stingy with stars too. I’ve given 5*’s this year to these new to me books:
      -The Handmaid’s Tale
      -The Book of Lost Things
      -The Help

      Congrats on your award. I enjoy Heather’s blog too – good choice.

      P.S. I can’t see the first button either – only the second one.
