It's the Spirit of the Season!

Hi there!  Just wanted to say thank you for visiting and welcome to the site!  A quick update on the happenings....while future book tours and interviews are in the works, we currently have a contest running to win a copy of the YA title The Brain Finds a Leg by Martin Chatterton.  Entries accepted through 12/11/09 midnight CST...so be sure to stop by, check the review, read the author interview, and enter for your chance to win!  Moving on....

With the holiday season upon us, a funny thing happens.  We see a larger outpouring of well wishing and good cheer...almost to pandemic proportions.  That's not a bad thing, but I do wish it could last the whole year through.  (don't you?)  Those good vibrations (sorry, Beach Boys, but I had to use the phrase) put you in such a happy place...as does receiving a blog award which yours truly recently did!  This past weekend, I was lucky enough to receive the Over the Top Award from fellow awesome book blogger, Jo over at Once Upon a Bookcase.  (Thanks, Jo!)



Isn't it pretty?

In the spirit of giving (and receiving), I am now going to bestow MY very FIRST AWARD to 10 special followers.....(breath in, breath out, breath in....here goes nothing...)  Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers (umm...okay, me really) would like to continue the life of the very first award I received from (ironically enough) Jo over at her (other) blog Ink and Paper!  The award I am passing on today is....


...the Humane Award!
This award is to honor certain bloggers that are kindhearted individuals. They regularly take part in my blog and always leave the sweetest comments. If it wasn't for them, my site would just be an ordinary book review blog. Their blogs are also amazing and are tastefully done on a daily (or close to) basis. I thank them and look forward to our growing friendship through the blog world.
Rule:  Nominate 10 bloggers you feel deserve the Humane Award. 

Here is my list of recipients for this wonderful award:


Thank you to each of you for visiting and commenting on my blog with the frequency that you do!  They definitely brings a smile to my face each time I read them.  If you have not checked out their sites yet, what are you waiting for?  (No seriously, each name is linked to the site for easy access.)

So I will close for now with a happy heart and a skip in my step...hoping that each of you reading this have the same honor of receiving or giving a little blog love soon...




Until next time....happy reading!

Congratulations on your much deserved award and thank you for thinking of me and passing on that award, always nice to receive but even better still is that I get to meet some new bloggers. Thanks again. Will certainly pass on asap.

Thanks so much for the award! I wish good will could last throughout the whole year too. I wonder what would happen if instead of one month of a huge amount of good will all that good will was spread across the entire year..

Petty Witter: No, thank you! Hope you get to add a few new bloggers to your "daily rounds".

Melanie: That is indeed a question....now, if only we could create a "bubble town" and try it out...still I think the outcome would be one to remember. =0)

Juju: =0)
