You Make My Day

It was a surprise and a delight to come back to my blog after a brief interlude to discover that Eva at A Striped Armchair gave me the You Make My Day Award!
Thank you!

Now it's my turn to choose ten bloggers that make my day, whose words inspire me, and make it a pleasure to be a part of the blogging community.

Melissa: I was first introduced to her blog when she started the Expanding Your Horizons challenge. I have since discovered that all of her posts are a delight to read.
Jeane: I don't comment on her blog as much as I should, but I always take pleasure in reading her latest reviews.
Wendy: Wendy (of caribuosmom) was the first person to comment on my blog. Her book selections are eerily similar to my reading tastes, and her reviews are so well-thought out, they always stimulate that somewhat neglected intellect portion of my brain!
Wendy (Literary Feline): Wendy's posts are always so much fun to read. Plus, she shares my love for friendly felines, you can't beat that!
Kristina: I only recently discovered Kristina's blog, after realizing that we were both expecting our first child within months of each other (which turned into weeks, when her son arrived very early, and my daughter arrived late). I love reading about her journey into motherhood, and the books she still makes time to read.
Lotus Reads: One of the first blogs I started visiting regularly. I love her cultural and anthropological perspective on the books that she reads.
Laura: Laura reads a lot of prize winners and international authors, and I always enjoy reading her perspective.
Dewey: Her blog is wonderful in every way.
Tukopamoja: Another blog I recently discovered, he is the host of the African reading challenge. I always enjoy reading his thoughts on African current events.
Becky: Her blog has been a blessing in helping to discover (and re-discover) wonderful books to read to my daughter.

What an honor, thank you sooooooo much! I do apologize for being late in acknowledging this wonderful award but I have been away from the blogosphere. Again, thank you very much for thinking of me and my blog!
