For What It's Worth

Sunday Ramblings....

This week I was given the Versatile Blogger award from Mel's Books and Info. Thanks Mel - I love your blog too!

The Rules for the award are:
1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (In no particular order...)
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.
So here are seven things you may or may not want to know about me:

1. I am super shy and have many phobias...including but not limited to:  fear of flying/heights & closed going to BEA was a major accomplishment for me - I even managed not to have a panic attack or pass out!
2. I don't have any phobias when it comes to animals/nature - I love everything...spiders/snakes/bugs etc.
3. I get a Starbucks iced coffee with cream and two sugars every morning.
4. I'm opinionated (shocker), so don't ask if you you don't want to know what I think.
5. I've been married for 23 years!
6. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my favorite show of all time and I still watch the reruns whenever they are on.
7. I am totally addicted to my Blackberry. I have it with me all the time to check email/Twitter etc - but I have only used it maybe 4-5 times for the phone.

Here are new blogs I've discovered and love.......sorry but I don't have 15 - I just had to do this a few weeks ago too!
Cry Havoc Reviews
Beyond Books
The Nerd's Wife
The Smarty Owl
I Just Wanna Sit Here And Read

Next week I'll be reviewing "Torment" by Lauren Kate and I'll be giving away a copy of "Packing for Mars" by Mary Roach which was a great book!!


  1. Well done on the award, I'm away to visit the other bloggers you mention.

  2. Thanks for the award mention! I found that we are similar in a few ways based on the list you posted (flying/heights/Buffy) but I'd like to add spiders and sharks to my animal phobias. ;)

  3. Can't wait to ger the down-low on Torment. Fallen was almost a book I really liked, but missed the mark a tad.

  4. you already have torment?? wow! I am only just now starting to read fallen :)
