Frequent Commenter Award - my first award!

Yay! My blog has won it's first award. This is from Gabriel Reads. Thank you Gabriel.

For this award I have now to pass it on to at least two others, recommend four books and recommend four blogs. I would have awarded pwb of curiosity killed by bookworm but she was also awarded this by Gabriel. So I am awarding it to Imaginary friends and Sally of Elifylop.

Four books I recommend;

1. One Day - David Nicholls
2. White Teeth - Zadie Smith
3. Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell
4. Jpod - Douglas Coupland

Four book blogs I recommend;

1. This Week At The Library.
2. Books I Done Read.
3. Curiosity Killed the Bookworm.
4. The Eye Of Loni's Storm.

Thanks again for the award Gabriel.


  1. Thanks for the recommendation Karen. I thought Cloud Atlas had potential but it was abit of a slog for me and I hated how when I was just getting into a story it would junp to the next. At one point I thought my copy was missing pages! Loved JPod (and I even liked the short lived TV show based on it) and I have a pending mooch for One Day.

  2. I can actually see why you felt Cloud Atlas was a bit of a slog. There were sections of it I wasn't too fond of but over all I enjoyed it.

    JPod is one of my favourite books. Whenever I introduce someone to Douglas Coupland I lend that one out last because it's the best one.

    I have yet to meet someone who doesn't like One Day. I have loaned my copy out more times than I can count.

  3. Hey,
    Congratulations on winning the award and thanks for passing it on to me!

  4. Thank you so much for the award Karen, now I shall think about recommendations. Strange thing - out of your four book recommendations I actually have three on my reading list for this year. Cloud Atlas, White Teeth and Jpod... maybe I'll move them forward on the pile.


  5. You are welcome! That is strange. Hope you enjoy them. Look forward to seeing what you recommend.
