On Being Awarded


Being Awarded feels like Heaven. Feels Special.
Feels Honored. Feels Praised. Feels Inspired.

Gives you a reason to smile.
A Reason to Celebrate. A Reason to Appreciate.

A Reason to share Happiness. A Reason to share Love.
A Reason to share the Awards.
A Reason to make someone feel the joys of Being Awarded!

Past few weeks have been generous with me. Actually, more than generous! Because I have hardly written anything compared to the number of awards I’ve received. How funny can life get!

I would like to thank Ste J, my friend here who also is a fellow book-lover, a book-reviewer for awarding me with these two awesome awards!

The Gargie Award

Thank you J for considering me worthy of these awards. Being Awarded from a proficient writer like yourself means a lot.

Now, I would like you to meet J at his book blog where he reviews books and shares some really good-to-know facts about books from all genres.I quite simply adore his work.

It is IMPERATIVE for those who wonder about what good books to read as J has some freaking awesome good books listed on his blog. Trust me, he’s helped me speed up my reading as I now know that a lot of quality books are waiting for me! Here, http://www.bookmust.wordpress.com. Do take a look!

And I’d like to share these awards with some super-awesome bloggers I follow.

Congratulations to all! Keep up the good work! πŸ™‚

And now questions to be answered.

  • What first inspired you to start writing a blog? My less-spacious Brain
  • What is the biggest challenge you have had to face when writing a blog? My favorite pens drying out as I no longer use them as much.
  • If you travelled through time, what time would you want to arrive at and why? Tolstoy’s era. He is my inspiration idol in both reading and writing. And it is my dream to meet him someday. Maybe in heaven. God keep him safe!
  • Do you prefer to ear chocolate, sweets or neither? That is mood-subjective.
  • Do you prefer to read or write? Read!
  • What is your favourite genre of writing and why? Self-observations Genre. I like to empty up my head from time to time and I never exhaust of the topics to write on.
  • What is your favourite non-fiction topic to read about and why? Quite a few, actually. Spirituality, History, Self-Help. It is good to go for real things in a while.
  • If you could buy one book that would help you solve a problem in your life, what would it be and why? Fifty Shades. To help me place them under my laptop or desktop PC for elevation.
  • Do you prefer to write at night or during the day? Doesn’t matter as day or night as long as my head isn’t oozing nonsensical stuff.
  • If you could be any character from a book, who would you be and why? Bellatrix from Harry Potter. Loved her attitude.
  • Do you prefer to read a printed book or an e-Book? Printed. As I love toΒ  sniff the smell of books frequently. long and slow like an absolute maniac.

Now, its your turn,

  • Answer the questions above like I did
  • Nominate 11 bloggers
  • Inform your nominees by posting a link on their blogs

Happy Awarding! Happy Blogging! πŸ˜€

  1. Congratulations and thank you for the award and for the intro to some new to me bloggers. I will have to explore when time allows.

    Tolstoy: we share that particular love, though my parents could never understand it. 😦 Sweet reponses to the questions and always love to get to know you better.

    Be well and happy … Read and write and blog …
    Hugs!

    1. Dear Jamie, guess I am becoming an expert at late-replying. Somehow missed your reply here.
      You much deserved the award.
      That goes same with me. So much so, my dad found War & Peace a good giveaway to the newspaper fellow. Cannot blame him, can I? Given, so massive it was.
      Its going to be fun to know about your literary taste too. Will wait for you to post.
      Enjoy and take care! πŸ™‚

    1. So sorry to have replied late Kristyl. Pleased as I am for the award, wanted to convey my vote of thanks to you.

      Doubly joyful it is to be nominated for an award more than once. I’ll try and keep up with my writing.

      I will post soon.

      Love to you! Much thanks too.

  3. Love your reason for buying Fifty Shades, I actually wanted to hug you for that. Tolstoy was immense, next year i shall get to Anna Karenina, honest. Thank you for the awards also. I need a virtual mantel piece to store them on.

    1. Heheh… I’m sure you’re going to need a few extra shelves too to shelve the awards SteJ.
      Well, there’s quite a lot of other books too but I guess I’d rather use the Fifty Shades for that purpose. πŸ˜‰
      I am waiting for you to finish reading Anna Karenina so that I can then read your review. Looks, I might not have to wait for long now.

      1. Wow! That’d be amazing. Guess, I need not wait for long for another one of your awesome reviews to come!

        If I may ask for one of your all-time favorites, which one would that be? (Although, I know, picking ONE is difficult, still)

  4. Thank you so much, Asha. πŸ™‚
    I loved reading your answers. Bellatrix, huh? That’s a strange choice but in case of attitude, a fine one. πŸ™‚
    P.S:- When I saw the first part of the answer, I thought you were gonna say ‘Bella Swan’ from Twilight. πŸ˜›

    1. Welcome so much Manu. πŸ˜‰
      And Yeah, I do so like her. But I guess it is more so because it is Helena Carter and not Bellatrix. And yes given how much I love Bella Swan, I’d rather kill myself than be her. (Laughing)
