We’ve been nominated for Best Review Site in the Preditors & Editors Reader Polls! Isn’t that awesome?

Will you vote for us please? We’re up against some stiff competition, so I’m not sure we’ll win, but we’d really appreciate your votes!

E for Excellent Award

Posted August 24, 2008 by Holly in Discussions, Features | 0 Comments

Dana from One for the Books recently bestowed upon us the E for Excellent award. We can’t tell you how humbled we are to receive this. She said:

  1. Book Binge: I can’t believe that 4 ordinary women started/maintain this thing! It’s a stellar book site!

I can’t believe she thought we deserved an E for Excellent! Dana, thank you! According to Da Rules, we’re supposed to nominate 7 other blogs. But we cheated a little. The sad truth is, we couldn’t agree on which 7 blogs to nominated. So instead of battling it out to the death (srsly, one of us might have ended up having a coronary) we each chose 7. No, we aren’t going to tell you who chose which. Suffice it to say, when it comes down to it, there are a lot of pretty Excellent blogs out there.

In no particular order:

Kristie J.
Jill D.
Shannon from What Women Read
Jen B.
Wendy, The Super Librarian
