Time to Blush: A WordPress Award nomination for Books Now!


Well, I’m completely bowled over but Books Now! has been nominated for the WordPress Family Award, pictured here:


My sincere thanks to author Billy Ray Chitwood of The Final Curtain ( for putting Books Now! forward. I am extremely honoured and touched. The Award celebrates the family spirit of blogging, as you connect with people you will probably never meet in person. There are no rules, apart from displaying the logo on your blog and a “Pay It Forward” concept of nominating 10 other inspiring bloggers in turn.

This, of course, is where the difficulty lies. I subscribe to MANY blogs and they are all extraordinary in their way. Finding 10 blogs is virtually impossible. My list is by no means exhaustive and if your name is not there, please know that I cherish you still!

On a personal note, I’d also like to thank the growing number of subscribers who are visiting Books Now! The blog has been running for just  three months and now has a following of over 100 people from all over the world. It has been thrilling to converse with many of you and to join the book loving community.

In the spirit of the Award, here are my 10 nominees, in no particular order. (I wish there were more….)

The Final Curtain –

Cultural Life –

Jane Dougherty Writes –

One Track Muse –

Lantern Post –

Course of Mirrors

ANZ Lit Lovers

Interesting Literature – http://interesting

Le Koala Litteraire –

Deborah Brasket –

Now that you’ve been nominated, please:

1. Display the award logo on your blog (see above).
2. Link back to the person who nominated you
3. Nominate 10 others who have positively impacted your WordPress experience
4. Contact your WordPress family members to tell them of your nomination.

Et voilà!

  1. Congrats on the award! Looking forward to visiting the blogs you linked 🙂

  2. Thank you very much for the award nomination. I’m sorry I haven’t found time to respond yet.

    I am very honored that people appreciate and read my blog, I’ve been nominated for a few awards recently as well but it is sometimes difficult to respond to them all. But I don’t want people to be offended if I don’t respond. It is a difficult question of blog etiquette!

  3. Congratulations, and thanks, Dina. Blush here too. I only returned from visiting friends in Munich today and must catch up, but will explore the other sites you mention.

  4. Yeah! Yahoo! Yippee! Whoop! & Congratulations! Now I’m off to click on your nominee links.

  5. Wonderful 🙂 & congrats.
