So it looks like I’ve been nominated for The Entertainer Blogger Award. There are a bunch of these blogger awards going around, but this is one that’s not as common, and the questions are a bit weird. Who makes this stuff up? I have no idea, but it’s a fun way to learn a bit more about other bloggers, so I’m always excited to do these. Thanks to Poppy’s Best of Books for nominating me.
- Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
- Add these rules to your post.
- Answer all the questions below.
- Display the award picture in your post.
- Nominate 12* other bloggers who are funny, inspiring and most important of all ENTERTAINING!
And here is the random picture I need to include, as per the rules. Why a sailboat? I have no idea.
Q1. Why did you start a blog in the first place?
I had quit my job in the publishing business, and was moving onto something a little more ‘stable’ for my career. But, books are my passion, and I had really grown to love the people I was working with. So, I started a book blog to continue participating in this wonderful industry. The free books are a nice perk too.
Q2. What is your favourite book?
That’s a really difficult question, and one that I get asked all the time. I usually refuse to answer, mainly because I can’t really think of anything off the top of my head. But, I did really really really enjoy To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. I will commit to keeping my copy of it too, so that’s how you know I REALLY liked a book.
Q3. What do you dislike the most?
Hmmm not sure if this question refers to books, or anything about life in general, so I will give two different answers. I hate books that are too long, it’s not only a waste of time for the writer and the people who published it, but it’s a big waste of time for the reader, first and foremost. What do I hate about life in general? People who text/talk on the phone while driving; it’s just so dangerous.
Q4. What is your favourite food item from the mall?
Q5. What is your favourite pastime?
- Jo’s Book Blog
- Fiction Fan’s Book Reviews
- The Misstery
- Play Baby Play!
- The Paperback Princess
- Grab the Lapels
- The Owl on the Bookshelf
*I only nominated 7 other bloggers, because 12 is just too many yo!
Thanks for the tag! I shall have a think – hard to limit myself to just one book… or just one thing I hate! 😉 But I do agree about books that are too long for their content – it seems to be a real trend right now. I keep hoping it’ll pass soon…
haha agreed, on all counts. There are a lot of things I hate in the world, and books seem to be getting longer and longer these days…
