I Was Nominated-- Thanks to Everyone!

I just checked my email today and what did I find? A surprising email from The BBAW Awards Committee-- yep, I was nominated for this year's competition! :D Thanks to you lovely ladies, I've been nominated for "Best Post"! Any guesses which (now infamous) post got me this nomination? That's right-- my "Oops….Yep, I did it yet Again!" I know we had a lot of fun on this post, talking about how I 'lost control' again AND got a great deal at the same time. :D I have to say, I really enjoyed writing that post, and sharing my bargain deal with you, so I'm glad to know that this is the one they will be judging. Heck, it's not even about the winning-- it's just nice to know that my blog has even been nominated, noticed, and read by others. I'd be happy even if I came in 11th... Out of 10! Just coming this far is a huge deal for me! So thank you, dear readers, for coming by, enjoying what I have to say *At least part of the time ;)* and being such great friends! I feel like our blogs, though aimed for the sharing and enjoyment of all things books, are also a great way to meet new people who soon become friends that I hope will stick around for years to come. Thank you! The judging is to be around September 7th, and soon after the short list of finalist in this category will be posted on the website. The poll for you, the readers, to vote on will also be up at this time. So if you happen to be stopping by the blog that week to vote on other blogs, please be sure to check and see if I've made it or not. And if my blog happens to be there, well, a few votes wouldn't hurt... ;) But I won't hold it against you for voting for someone else-- I know there are some amazing blogs out there, and I wouldn't blame you for picking one of them, believe me!
Thanks again, and I'll be back tomorrow posting the blog award I got from the lovely Cecile from All I Want And More...., and on Monday I'll post my review of Secret Society... and the rules for the contest I'll be holding for my extra copy soon as well!
Until Next Time, The Book Queen
