The Sunshine Blogger Award Number Three

Hello beautiful people!

Wow…this is now my THIRD nomination for the Sunshine Blogger Award…I feel pretty special.

Thank you so much Rebecca for the nomination! Rebecca and I started talking more this year, which I’m very grateful for. Rebecca, the owner of bookishlyrebecca (previously known as My Life as a Sports Fangirl), is a wonderful human being and blogger. She’s very kind, polite, fun, and has a real knack for blogging; it’s really no surprise that her blog has continued to skyrocket as it grows in popularity. If you haven’t introduced yourself to Rebecca and her blog, I highly suggest you get on over and do that.

Hello beautiful booknerds!

Well, I’ve had a variety of interesting jobs. From receptionist to lifeguard, from reference librarian to map and data librarian, I’ve been lucky to gain knowledge in varying work professions.

Hello beautiful people!

Finally, I feel like I’m getting back into the groove of book blogging. Sometimes breaks are necessary, and I definitely needed one. Blogging felt more like a checklist item rather than something fun, and it sucked not having the time to read posts from other bloggers.
