I was up very early this morning and off to work – a long day filled with meetings and other boring things. I just got home and this was my first opportunity to log in to the Internet all day – thank you for the honor of being voted Best Literary Fiction Blog for BBAW 2008!

When I first started blogging, I blogged about my life and my animals…and then in early 2007 I discovered the wonderful community of book bloggers. I discovered their enthusiasm, generosity, addictiveness to all things bookish (including those pesky challenges), and friendship. And I was hooked. I am thankful for all the support I have gotten from this awesome community – it has motivated me and shown me that readers are indeed some of the best people around.

*accepts award with gratitude!*

**I happily accept Book N’ Border Collies Chocolate Martini to celebrate – CHEERS!

    Congratulations, Wendy! You deserve it. You help the book blogging community so much with your blogs. If it wasn’t for you, I probably wouldn’t have found so many great people online with the same love of books as me.

    Congrats Wendy!! I’m sure I’ve told you this before–but you’re how I got into blogging. From one of the yahoo groups I was in. When at the end of the month you posted links to your blog, I checked it out and was immediately hooked the the new world. 🙂 So thanks!!
