Hey guys, I've been nominated for the Liebster Award by Jennifer Windram! You might be wondering what exactly the Liebster Award is. As I understand it, it's a way to bring attention to new and interesting blogs. It is a really cool initiative, what with so many blogs and so little time.
Thank you, Jennifer, for thinking of All the Pretty Books!
This award has a few rules:
- Each nominee must link back to the person who nominated them.
- Answer the 10 questions which are given to you by the nominator.
- Nominate 10 other bloggers for this award who have less than 200 followers.
- Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
- Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them.
1. What is your best summer memory?
The endless summer days from my childhood. I have never been able of reliving the perfect bliss of neverending summer fun - the fresh fruit, the pool, the beach, playing with my sister, my granny's house. It's impossible to pick a favorite.
2. Do you sing in the shower?
Never. Instead, I think or invent silly stories.
3. Have you ever put an empty carton of milk/juice back in the refrigerator?
Never. It's about the same effort it takes to put the carton in the trash, and I would probably be pissed with myself when I forgot I had put it back empty and wanted milk or juice.
4. Which bug do you like better: Roly Poly (pill bug) or Ladybug? Why?
Ladybugs are prettier, but roly polies are funnier. When I was a child, I used to gently poke roly polies just to see them curl.
5. Who is the person who makes you laugh so hard soda comes out of your nose and tears stream down your face?
My sister and my boyfriend.
6. Where do you go when you need to get away from it all?
Being a book blogger, this must be a cliché, but it's the truth nonetheless - the library or a book shop. A place where I can be surrounded by books. Books, the physical objects, instantly lift me up.
7. Do you ever hide from door to door salespeople?
Ha! I know I shouldn't, but some times I do. Door-to-door salespeople of the world, I'm sorry, but I don't want to open when I'm slacking around in pyjama bottoms.
8. When do you decide it's time to get gas? 1/2 tank? 1/4 tank? Warning light has been on for 10 miles?
When the warning light goes crazy. Seriously, it starts beeping from time to time and flashing red if you don't fill the tank, even though is just a little beneath 1/4.
9. What is the one talent you wish you had?
Speed reading! That or multi-tasking. I know, I could have chosen many things, but there are so many books and so little time.
10. If you could time travel would you go to the future or the past?
The future. I would be too scared to enjoy the past, in case I screwed something up. And I'd like to know what the future looks like.
