Got Nominated for The #Liebster Award and I accepted!! Liebster Award Winner! Yippee... :) :)

Hey Friends,

Good News! :)
When I opened my mail today, I was surprised to see that Ericka Greer of Highway- Y.A. had nominated me for the Liebster Award
Thanks Ericka! :)
I totally accept the award. :)

Since I am new to blogging so I was unaware of this award and did some research. This is an award that recognizes and supports new bloggers. It has German origins – the word “liebster” has several definitions: dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, welcome, sweetheart and boyfriend (really?) ;)
It is said that the Liebster award was created to recognize and/or discover new bloggers and welcome them to the blogosphere. It is more of a recognition to new and promising bloggers with less than 200 followers. Getting this award means that my fellow bloggers like what I'm doing! :)
 It's a great way for fellow bloggers to pat each other on the back, meet new bloggers and publicize their site to the general public. 

Here are the rules to accept the award:

  • Link back to the blog that nominated you.
  • Answer the questions they set for the blogs they nominated.
  • Nominate 10 blogs of your own, and be sure to let them know, with a link to your post!
  • Ask 10 questions for the blogs you nominate to answer in their post.
  • Share some random facts about yourself.

  • Questions for me by Ericka from 
     Highway- Y.A.:-

    Q1. How long have you been blogging?

    I have been blogging since the end of May this year. So it makes my blog some five months old. :)

    Q2. What inspiration do you get from blogging?

    I love to read and discuss books after reading. Blogging allows me to share my thoughts with other book lovers and also help people decide if a book is good enough to buy. Also I get to meet new people who share the common passion for books.. :)

    Q3. What is your favorite book series?

    This is a tough question. I love too many book series to name only one as my favorite like the Harry Potter series, Twilight series, The McGregor series by Nora Roberts, LOTR series etc. :)

    Q4. If you could meet one author which one would it be?

    Agatha Christie. I would have loved to talk to her about her techniques of writing such great mysteries and also get to know how she devised such ingenious plots. Maybe also get some autographs and pics along the way! ;)

    Q5. While you are reading which is better: Coffee or Tea?


    Q6. Besides blogging what other things are you passionate about?

    Reading, gardening, writing and cooking.

    Q7. What book would you like to see turned into a movie?

    None. I think books are best when read. There true essence is somewhat compromised when adapted to television, howsoever, great the adaptation may be!

    Q8. Paranormal Romance or Science Fiction?

    None. Given a chance I would choose good old mysteries any day or romances laced with mysteries. :)

    Q9. What is considered to be the perfect day to just cuddle up with a good book?

    If I had my way I would make each day the perfect day and just cuddle up with a good book but alas, my perfect days are numbered occurring mostly on weekends.

    Q10. What is your favorite genre of books?


    Some random facts about me:

    • I can read non stop and have tested this ability for upto 20 hours. :)
    • I love to hoard books and irrespective of the current task at hand, can be found searching for book stores every time I go to the market.
    • You can find books stocked everywhere in my room ranging from shelves to security safes!
    • If I get interested in something I am unable to concentrate on anything else and you can find me either non communicative or only giving grunts. :)
    • My father is my role model and I often wish I had inherited a bit more of his good qualities.
    • I like to have an opinion on everything and can often be found reading anything I can find my hands on!
    • I wish to go to Frankfurt and Switzerland someday because Heidi was from there and I totally loved her and want to feel the fresh air and beauty that I read about and saw in the cartoon!
    • I laugh very loudly and have been trying to control my guffaws from I don't know how long!
    • I was never sure what I wanted to become when I grew up and switched from social worker to detective to archaeologist to news reporter to chef to even being a witch! :D
    • I love visiting libraries best and the kind of thrill I feel there is unlike any other place. :)
