Liebster Blog Award

What is the Liebster Blog Award?

“The Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming bloggers.

The Meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.”   Thanks Kate

Here are your 11 questions:

1. Who is your favorite author?  So many to choose from, but David Sedaris always makes me laugh
2. What is your favorite book?  Classic - To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
latest read that was excellent - Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacsson 
and The Hunger Games Trilogy - wow!

3. Do you give books as gifts? If so, how do you decide which book to give?  I definitely give books as gifts for children. Baby shower - start the library with some Dr.Seuss.  For adult friends - it depends on the person.

4. Who is your favorite up and coming author?  I want to read Gillian Flyn's Gone Girl. I've read excerpts and it looks great.

5. What music do you love?   Classics like The Eagles, Hall & Oates, Inxs.
New pop - Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, and Adele

8. Vanilla or Chocolate?  Chocolate

9. Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn?   Autumn (in PA with real leaves)   not in TX with brown leaves

10. Beginning or End?    Beginning

11. Why do you blog?  I enjoy sharing reviews of books, movies, travel, or aspects of writing. It's like a warm up for creativity and I try to blog twice a week.

Liebsters to so many - check out my blog links on the right side of my blog - Cozy in TX, Annalisa Crawford, Helen Ginger, Sherry Ellis to name a few. The blog world variety is enthralling


  1. I could happily give books as presents to every single person I know - I agree they make great gifts for kids.

    Great answers. And thanks for the mention at the end - it always shocks me when I see my name on someone else's blog :-)

  2. Congratulations on the award! I like the Eagles, too! Thanks for the mention. Someone else just nominated me for the Liebster award on my other blog, and oddly enough there weren't any questions associated with it.
