Linkety McLinkster

February 12, 2008

I swear, this month isn’t just shorter on days.  The days feel like they’re no more than eighteen hours long all of a sudden.  Amusingly enough, almost all of the books I’ve read recently are for review sites, so I’m almost caught up on blog reviews.  I’m not going to talk about Saffron Kitchen, since I listened to it over such a long time, and since  I can’t flip through it to find any supporting passages, my opinions are a little hazy.  I do have a great post on Persuasion floating around in my head, so hopefully I’ll get that out soon!

In the meantime, I have some links to catch up on!

First off, the February Bookworms Carnival is up. The host, Renay, obviously had a bunch of fun so go check it out! (I had to admire the amount of Neil Gaiman love in evidence)

Then, I realised I never announced who won the ARC copy of The House at Riverton. Whoops! The lucky winner (via random number generator) was Susan, of Bloggin’ ‘Bout Books. Go Susan! I’m looking forward to reading her thoughts on it as well. :)

Oh, and Bookfool was kind enough to give me a “Mwah”! Mwah!Here’s what comes with the cute picture:

The point of the Mwah! award is “to hand some of that love and kindness back around to those who have been so very, very, very good to me in this bloggy world. My hope is that those who receive this award will pass it on to those who have been very, very, very good to them as well. It’s a big kiss, of the chaste platonic kind, from me to you with the underlying ‘thanks’ message implied. I really do appreciate your support and your friendship and yes, your comments. … Mwah!”

I have so many people leaving such kind, supportive comments, that I don’t really know how to decide who to give this to! So, I’m giving a big Mwah! to everyone who commented on my “Loud Screams” post-all of the well wishes and congratulations were so sweet. And just to show how much I appreciate it, I’m listing everyone!
BookLogged, CJ Hill, aka_nik, Marg, Ravenous Reader, Jeane, Debi, Sarah, Susan, TY, Trish, Imani, LK, Love, Megan, Walrus, Iliana, Susan Flynn, Bookfool, Kim L, Petunia, Cass, Chris, MusingsFromtheSofa, Juliette, Dark Orpheus, Andi, Nymeth, BookeyWookey, Robin, Sam Houston, Tara, Stephanie, Somer, Bybee, Heather, Catherine Delors, Melanie, Bonnie’s Books, Emily Barton
That’s a lot of support-thanks guys!!

    Thanks for the Mwah :) this month really has seemed ridiculously short! The days have seemed to just fly by…I swear, I feel like I wake up and then it’s time to go to bed again…kinda sucks!

    Awww, thanks! I appreciate being included in that group and I’m glad I found you and them.

    February is such a strange month. I’ll be glad to see this one go – two blizzards in 10 days is enough!

    Thanks for the Mwah!

    Thank you for the Mwah :D

    I know just what you mean about February. I have no idea where time has been going these days.

    Congratulations to all!

    Although I was not one of the recipient, I solemnly tag you for a meme I started today.

    Thanks for the mwah! I agree, February has been kind of a weird month. I’ve been scrambling to finish projects at work before my last day, so it never seems that there is enough time! By the way, I followed your links from earlier to Pump up Your Book promotion, and I’m set up to review some books for them. So thank you for promoting them!

    Thank you! This is my first bloggy kiss and I gotta tell ya, it feels good.

    Smooches back at ‘ya! :)

    Thanks Eva! And right back at ya!

    Chris, you put it perfectly. Glad I’m not the only one feeling this way!

    CJ Hill, I’m glad you found me as well! Blizzards are icky-we haven’t had any this year in CO Springs, but last year, during my six-week winter break, I think we got snowed in twice a week!

    Marg, you’re welcome!

    Nymeth, you’re welcome! At least your time is being spent exploring awesome countries. ;)

    Gautami, I’ll go check it out.

    Heather, you’re welcome! :)

    Kim L, congrats!! I’m reviewing a couple books for them as well. I like how they get me in contact with the authors. :)

    Aka Nik, you’re welcome! I love reading your blog, although I just realised it wasn’t in my blogroll (I use bloglines)…must fix that.

    Iliana, thanks!

    Debi, you’re welcome!

    Hee. Thanks for the Mwah. And it’s on Valentine’s Day too. :)

    I takes a brave woman to kiss a walrus. Thanks!

    Thank you! You are such a great addition to my blog community!

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
