The versatile blogger award

27 May

At the beginning of this month, Jane from Australia awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award. Thanks a lot Jane! This is her blog.  So, after a really long time I get to write this for the Award.

The rules of The Versatile Blogger Award are:

-If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded The Versatile Blogger award.

– Thank the person who gave you this award.

– Include a link to their blog.

– Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.

-Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award

– Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

OK, here are the blogs that I have recently discovered :

Jessica really reads a lot. I love the blue on her blog

-Savindi, blogs at For the love of books. I love her recommendations!!

-For reviews and thoughts about classics, every book and cranny. 

-I loved the post “Do classics sell themselves” on frisbeebookjournal. I think that they do sell themselves!

-Alison, atthe cheap reader, who absolutely loves books!

Maggie, who also loves books and has amazing poetry.

Books on the tube has an amazing list of 100 great books! I would love to read them all!

-A recent addition to the book lovers is the shameless bibliophile. I love C. S. Lewis too!

-Kimberley, who lives in the Netherlands, has an amazing list from the BBC Book List Challenge. She blogs at ayearofprojects.

Cassandra reads more than 10 books a month! Incredible! See for yourself.

-Linda who is a writer, and has lots of success! She is at bookbabylinda’s blog

– Grace, an aspiring librarian, writes profound reviews: books without any pictures.

-Helen from England: she reads novels.  She is a 19th century classics lover.

Giving reading a chance, by Veena from India. She does marvellous reviews!

-Last but not least meet Rachel from London: Book Snob

Things about myself

-I really like the sky, I could spend the whole day just looking at it.

-I have recently developed a love for history.

-Naturally, Italy has stolen my heart. Amiable people, great skies, the most lovely sunsets that I have ever seen and not to mention pizza and  gelato.

-I think that Italian and Swahili are the most beautiful languages I have come across.

-Aeroplanes are  amazing. I wish I lived near an airport, just to see them land and takeoff. But I don’t know what I would do about the noise.

-When I want to laugh, I read P.G. Wodehouse, James Herriot or Anthony Trollope.

-I don’t read as much as I would like to, although I really try my best!
