BBAW and Awards : Thanks!

BBAW 2009

First, the surprising news : I have received an email last night, telling me The Infinite Shelf has been nominated in the “Best new blog” category for the BBAW! Wow! What a surprise! Having nominated blogs too, I know how hard it is to choose only one blog per category. So, to say that I was nicely surprised is an understatement! Thank you! 😀

EDIT August 20th : I received another email last night, announcing my nomination for “Best YA blog”! Wow! If I was surprise to get one nomination, you can imagine how surprised I was to receive two! 😀


I have received some awards in the last months, and while I DO love them dearly, I always fail to post them here and give them back. I’m bad, I know! So I’ll take this occasion to do exactly that. I know I’m forgetting some, and I’m sorry for that; so if you read this, and you did give me an award and don’t see it on the page, please tell me so I can add it! 😀

I would also like to add that I would happily pass these awards back to those who give them to me! 😀 I enjoy your blogs, too, and the friendships we are creating. I hadn’t expected such an amazing community when I started book-blogging! 😀

The Zombie Chicken Award

Received from Jemima ,Juju and Amanda. Zombie + Chicken = win!


The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all…

I pass this award on to :

The Let’s be Friends Award

Received from Juju


Blogs that receive the Let’s Be Friends Award are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers.

I pass this award on to :
