Versatile Blogger Award

I've been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Victoria @ Addlepates and Book Nerds.  Thanks for the high praise!  Don't forget to stop by her blog!

Here's how the Versatile Blogger Award works:

1. Write seven facts about yourself.

2. Nominate fifteen other bloggers for the award.

3. Let nominees know you have tagged them.  (Don't forget to thank and link back to your nominator.)


Here are seven random facts about me:

1. As much as I love hard copy books, my Kindle is my new best friend.  I just love carrying around so many books without physically dragging around fifty extra pounds!

2. My favorite things to look for at antique shops and thrift stores are books.  Sometimes you can find some astonishing deals and titles!

3. Later today, in fact, I'm going to pay a visit to Ollie's Bargain Outlet. As a proud member of Ollie's Army, I have received a 15% off your entire purchase coupon and I plan to see what great book deals they have going.  If there are any Ollie's Bargain Outlets in your area, I highly recommend going because they seriously have good stuff cheap!

4. I've just started reading Doctor Who: 12 Doctors, 12 Stories.  I began with the Ninth Doctor's story first, since I'm less familiar with the classic series and so far I'd say they've got his tone down.  Lots of fantastic (get it) authors have contributed to the book and I'm really excited to read the short stories.

5. I have recently gotten hooked on Star Wars: The Clone Wars tv series.  I'm in the middle of season three and it's getting very good and pretty dark.

6. The next movie I plan to see in the theaters is Jupiter Ascending in 3D.  Somehow, I managed to luck out and get this Friday off, so I'll actually be able to see it opening day!

7. "Geronimo" by Sheppard is one of my new favorite songs.  Have a listen:
I expect the 11th Doctor would enjoy this song.

  3. I love looking for books at thrift stores or antique stores. My mom and I used to go to the thrift stores almost every weekend looking for good deals. We don't have an Ollie's here, but we do have Goodwill, and a couple of nice Ma and Pa used bookstores we like to go to.

    Congrats on the award! ;)
