Once upon a time a young girl was sitting in the afternoon rays of the sun, occupying her little unassuming corner of the world. As she sat there avoiding her revision for an upcoming exam, she wondered why the world couldn’t simply run on love and books instead of statistics. It would be much more fun.
Then out of the corner of her eye a new blog comments popped into her inbox, they told her she had won two awards for doing what she loved. This made her little heart soar with joy, maybe the world did run on love and books after all.
She would like to thank Bound4Escape and Strung Out on Books for the nominations that brightened up her cloudy day.

~ Ruley rule rules (because we live in a structured society people). :
1. Display the award logo on your blog.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. State 7 things about yourself
4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.
5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award requirements.
Because both of these awards ask for seven facts I am going to bunch them together into one.
~ * ~
~ These are seven random facts thingies:
1.) I do a little dance in my head every time I get awarded one of these things.
2.) I like cheese but only if it’s melted.
3.) I have a lucky charm object which is weird considering I don’t believe in that stuff other than the psychology of it, but it just kind of happened. I’m not going to tell you what it is though because it may lose its luck. 😉
4.) I’ve booked a holiday to go to Edinburgh with my friends this year, so excited. 😀
5.) I may have a book blog and an extreme love of reading but surprisingly, I am a pretty slow reader, maybe average but certainly not as fast as most people I know!
6.) I put my feet down on the floor to get off the sofa the other day and there was a MASSIVE spider right next to my feet, and I’m talking 3cm big which is wayyy past the normal ones you get in the UK. (I’m sure if there are any Australian people reading this right now, you are laughing at me, or anyone from places where you get horrifically big spiders and creepy crawlies.) After the succession of abnormally big spiders I have encountered in the last year (WHO’S BEEN FEEDING THEM? OWN UP), what with the time one tried to attack me in my room with no one to save me and the two I found lying in wait on my TOWEL (bleeeuugh) it is safe to say I am traumatized, I seem to be getting more fearful of them with age! :S
7.) Turns out after you do several of these seven fact thingies you tend to run out of stuff to say! I mean come on, I’m interesting, but I’m not THAT interesting. LOL.

I’m not going to tag 15 bloggers because that seems a little excessive to me, besides, who is going to look through 15 whole links, even if they are awesome? However, I have come across several new blogs recently which I have been really enjoying, so I am going to tag them so you guys can head on over to check them out! 🙂
Very Inspiring Blogger Award
Miscrawl – Absolutely love her reviews, in-depth, insightful, entertaining and she has a lovely personality to match!
Midnight Coffee Monster – Books and caffeine, my two favourite things. 🙂 She picks up a lot of interesting books that I might not have considered beforehand, and then convinces me to read them!
Books on the Tube – Working her way through the BBC Big Read list with a number of great and memorable titles I couldn’t help but tag along for the journey! Plus, she’s a fellow Londoner. (It’s so cool that I can actually say that now. :))
Shine On Award
The Neverending Books – She reads books I also have a similar interest in so I’m always interested in what she has to say! She’s also trying to read all of Edgar Allan Poe’s work and I can’t wait to see her progress.
Notes in the Margin – A reviewer with an interesting technique that shows you her thought process as she makes her way through a book!
A Wordless Blogger – I’ve known Emma a little longer than these other bloggers and her reviews are always thorough and informative. Take special note of The Book Notes Project which she has created, it’s such a fantastic idea that I wholeheartedly support!

A small blogging announcement, I have finally created a blog badge! (One big step for Becky one non-existent step for mankind.) I’m sure most of you already know but this is a small image that represents your blog that others can put on their sites if they like what you write. This leads to other awesome bloggers being able to find you through their sites.
My badge can be found at the right hand side of my blog at the bottom of my widgets bar. To use it you go to your own widgets tab, drag the text widget into your chosen widgets and paste the badge code in.
I doubt anyone will use it but ohh well. If you do though, you would be the awesomest 😀 and I would pay you in erm…well, I can’t pay you, but I promise to keep posting and doing whatever it is that I do. 🙂

Sigh, back to the revising.
