Photobucket Time (1 of 4)

Before I start with all my Friday memes, I need to thank 3 very kind people.  Yesterday I was presented 2 awards and am honored to receive them.  I take these awards very seriously because it says to me that someone really likes my blog and that they enjoy the content.  Just a few months ago, I didn't even know that this book blogging world existed and when I am presented with an award, it truly makes me feel that I have been accepted into the neighborhood.  I have said this before but need to reiterate.  One of my book blogging mentors (Vicki from Reading At The Beach) told me that I would be meeting the nicest people in the blogging world and she was so right.  Book bloggers are the kindest, friendliest, helpful people I have come to know.  Now to the awards:

I received this award from Lori at Dollycas's Thoughts (
This startling award was created by Eleni at La Femme Reader.
It signifies all the bloggers out there who constantly work hard to keep an updated and insightful website. They aren’t afraid to take a bite with their honest reviews and enjoyable content. You amaze me, you inspire me so I call you a blog monster.
  I am now going to pass this award to the following:
Julie P from Reading Without Restraint
Lynn from Midday Escapades
MarceJ from Tea Time With Marce
Nise from Under The Boardwalk
Xmas Dolly

  I received this award from 2 bloggers and they are:
Busy Moms Who Love To Read
Julie P from Reading Without Restraint

  I will be passing this award to those who put in their time to host memes and/or challenges and allow us the opportunity to meet other book bloggers. I feel they are most deserving and they are:
Jennifer from Crazy For Books
Kathy from Bermudaonion Weblog
Lori from Lori's Reading Corner
Sheila from One Person's Journey Through A World of Books
Vicki from Reading At The Beach
   Thank you again !!!!! It is so appreciated !!!!    Cheryl  aka CMash

Now on to the memes!
