How wonderful: velvet from vvb32 reads gave me this Let’s Be Friends Award! Good thing I don’t have a webcam because I’m sitting here awfully red-faced ;) Thank you SO much velvet! And I’m looking forward to reading The Pillowbook with you for our Japanese Literature Challenge :)

Let's Be Friends Award

The award is for:
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. Deliver this award to eight bloggers.

What an amzing way to end the Book Bloggers Appreciation Week :)

The hard part is that I can select only 8 blogs of all those great reader-writers out there..! Let’s do it Oscar-style:


Suzanne of Chick with books (I haven’t known her long but her kind en generous remarks stand out)

Mee of Books of Mee (always extremely interested in the thoughts of commentators on her posts)

Belezza of Dolce Belezza (generous host of the Japanese Literature Challenge)

tanabata of In Spring it is the Dawn (sharing her Japan experiences on what is probably the blog with the most poetic name ;)

Literary Feline of Musings of a Bookish Kitty (giveaways, giveaways, giveaways :) And you have to love anyone adoring cats!)

Claire of Kiss a Cloud (great taste in books, especially cherishing classics — and what can I say: have you seen today’s giveaway?)

Chris of Book-a-rama (I can’t believe the amount of reviews she’s sharing! And I love the idea of ‘This old thing?‘!)

gautami tripathy of Everything Distills into Reading (very active in the blogging community!)

It is great having so many virtual friends!
