How nice to come home from a week in North Carolina celebrating the Fourth of July to find a surprise in my Inbox. I’ve been tagged.
These Awards were passed to me by a terrific blogger, Mirka Breen. If you haven’t already read my review of her middle grade novel, The Voice of Thunder, you can find it in the post for June 16. Her Mirka Muse blog address is: http://mirkabreen.blogspot.com/
Here is one of the Awards:
For the Fabulous Blog Ribbon, I get to name five things I like and five I don’t.
Five things I like:
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- Wild flowers
- Children’s books
- Art Deco
Five things I don’t like:
- Litterbugs and all forms of disrespect of the Earth
- Cold weather

Next is The Booker Award
The Booker Award comes with the request that I name five favorite books. My list of favorite books is a mile long, so I will name five that just pop into my head.
- Miss Hickory by Carolyn Sherwin Bailey
- The Skull of Truth: A Magic Shop book by Bruce Coville
- Blackwater by Eve Bunting
- Millions of Cats by Wanda Gag
- David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
Those who know me well know I refuse to live in the real world.
