My Happy List, Hopping Blogs, and an Armchair BEA Shout Out

Hey, I got an award! This one called Happy 101  from a new-to-me blogger friend Tif Talks Books. It requires that I list ten things that make me happy. Since I appear to be into lists this week, why not, I say:

1. chocolate chip cookie dough
2. reading in bed... in the morning
3. powerful awesome thunder storms
4. going to music concerts
5. books in the mail
6. teenage kids home safe and sound
7. blog comments
8. the sound of the ocean
9. traveling the back roads
10. getting books signed

If you're especially happy today, I pass this award on to you!!

I thought I'd couple this post with my first try at the Blogger Hop. Details and sign-ups for that over on Crazy for Books. So welcome to new blogger friends hopping over here. Hopefully you'll take a minute to look around and see what you think! I'm hoping to get a chance to hop around to new blogs later on today.

Also,  I wanted to help spread the news about the Armchair BEA. This is what several bloggers have come up with as a way for those of us who are sad about not getting to go to New York for the real BEA, too participate from home and have our own bookish fun. There's several bloggers with a sign up posted for that, but I will direct you to Emily's over at Emily's Reading Room, if you are interested. I think it's going to be great fun!

Have a great weekend everyone! Tomorrow I have plans to stalk more authors, so hopefully I'll have a report about that experience to share on Sunday.


  1. Love your happy list! Totally agree with #5, getting books in the mail. One of my favorite things! And thunderstorms are pretty cool too.

  2. I just signed up for the Armchair BEA. What a great idea, because I'm really jealous I'm not going. *pout*

    I am very excited about armchair BEA. I attended the "real" BEA last year and had a great time. I look forward to this year's event just as much :)

  15. I love your happy list and I am so glad that I found you!! However, you are beginning to have a bad influence on me . . . your number one has me thinking I need some and unfortunately, I have all the ingredients to just whip some up!! :)
