Welcome friends! I have started this entry in the global technosphere because I have been in love with books since the age of 2. Among the busy business of being a new teacher, this is my outlet for sharing thoughts on a love of reading a wide variety of books. My inspiration can be summed up with a yearbook quote from a teacher written when I was 8: "To the only girl at recess I see reading a book. Good for you!"
My blog title is quoted from a classmate who asked me this once. Believe it or not, I've also heard it as a teacher :D

Versatile Blogger Award

Wow, it must be early Oscar buzz catching on in the book blogging community :D  I'm very touched to receive the Versatile Blogger Award from Sheery @ Sheery's Place.  Thanks!

Here are the rules:

- Share 7 things about yourself.
- Pass the award to 15 bloggers recently discovered.
- Notify the blogger recipients.
- Link to the blogger who gave the award.

Without being redundant (boy, it sure is getting hard to be original with these bio questions!):

1)  We got a few centimetres of snow last night & the plow actually came into our street (big surprise).
2)  I chipped half of a front tooth in high school on a table, but luckily it didn't hit a nerve.
3)  I watched a hilarious new Scrat (the acorn-protecting weasel from Ice Age) cartoon short this morning.  Guaranteed laughs :D
4)  I am working tomorrow afternoon but this week has been dry & I have Monday off, too!
5)  I'm excited to watch Ricky Gervais host the Golden Globes on Sunday.  He is the funniest comic in show biz today.
6)  I've stayed up every year to watch the entire Oscars show since I was 12.
7)  The only pet (except fish) I've had was when I was 6-7.  It was a teddy hamster named Flower.

    Ricky Gervais creeps me out a little bit. I don't think he was acting in "The Office"!

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you. My post is here

    I find Ricky Gervais kinda annoying, The Office was good though.
