A Nice Surprise!

I checked my blog yesterday and had a pleasant surprise. Stephanie at Confessions of a Bookaholic nominated me for the Thinking Blogger Award. Wow! I'm very honoured that she would chose me. Of course now I feel I have to live up to it by only writing thoughtful posts. I will do my best, but I can't guarantee anything. ;)

My job now is to choose 5 bloggers that make me think (and I hope they make you think too!) It was tough. Although lot of blogs I read have already been nominated, there are so many others I read that haven't. How do I pick just 5? Well, I had to, so here are my 5 nominations:
1. Kristy at Just Another Blogger: Her book reviews are very insightful.
2. Between the Covers: Book reviews from a book lover, downunder. Beautiful blog too.
3. Tea Reads: A threesome of book lovers, who discuss all things book related.
4. Raidergirl at An Adventure in Reading: Another bookie from the red sand beaches of PEI.
5. Kim from Kimbooktu: I don't know how she does it, but she finds book gadgets from all over the world that make you think, "Now why didn't I think of that?"
I have a running theme of book blogs here! Please check out their blogs. Now that I've chosen these bloggers, here are the rules:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to the thinking blogger post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).


  1. Thanks Christina. Does this mean I have to think? I'm sort of a blog virgin (is that possible;-). This is the first week I've really had time to work on my blog, but I'll do my best.

  2. Kristy- Your blog has been looking really good and those reviews are great. Keep it up!

  3. Congratulations, and thank you! Now I have a reputation to uphold!

  4. Thank you! What a great surprise . .. and what fun I'll have now choosing my five!

  5. Thanks Chris, I really enjoy reading your blog, so pretend I picked you back. I enjoyed following your other links around too.

  6. Congratulations, Chris. You have a great blog. I also want to congratulate you because you are the winner of my BAFAB contest. HURRAY!! So send me an email at neens_scene@hotmail.com with your name and address and a $15 or less book you would like from Amazon. Put BAFAB in the subject line so I can watch for it. Again, congratulations and thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. Hi, Chris- I've tagged you with a meme - "8 random things..." - sorry, but I really want to read what you post!
