Sunshine Award


I was awarded the Sunshine Award from Melanie at Christian Bookshelf Reviews

Thanks Melanie for the award! I'm going to deviate from the rules(gasp) and just answer the questions that Melanie posted for the winners. While I love love love many blogs I pretty much know the ones I would like to pass this on to would not have the time to fulfill the rules of the award. So here goes:

1)What is your favorite TV show?
My favorite TV show would be Bones, or Psych, or Downton Abbey. They are pretty much the only ones I watch on TV. We don't get cable so I have to wait for them to be posted online or buy them when they come out on video.

2)Have you ever read a book based on a friend's recommendation alone? If so, what was it and did you like it?
A librarian friend was going on and on about this vampire series that she just loved. I finally said to her, "You do know that vampires are not real don't you?" She called me a smarty and handed me Twilight to read...I was hooked! Still love it and the movies. 

3)  What is your favorite Bible verse?
Isaiah 40:31-Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.

4)What is your least favorite food?
I despise fish! I think the reason being that when I was a kid my parents made me eat fish and not very good fish. I had to pick all of the bones out. Yuck! The only type of seafood I like is shrimp and that only if it is fried :)

5)  Who is your favorite professional sports team?
I'm not a sports fan. I guess if I had to pick it would be the Dallas Cowboys because my son-in-law is a fan. Whenever my husband is channel surfing and the Cowboys are on we watch and I text my SIL and commiserate with how well or how bad they are doing. I don't understand any of the jargon or the strategy that goes with the game, but I know what a touchdown is! haha!

6)  What is your favorite part about blogging?
Ummm...the free books? haha! Actually it is my way of communicating with the world. And also my way of journaling.  Plus I like to meet new people and authors through the blogospere.

7)What is your favorite Christmas song?
I always laughingly say " Grandma Got Ran Over By A Reindeer"! I really love "Mary Did You Know" and pretty much anything that talks about Jesus' birth.

8)What are five of your all-time favorite books?
Pride and Prejudice
Anne of Green Gables
Gone With The Wind
Jane Eyre
Do you know how hard it is to pick just 5? I have so many series that I love too! Check them out:
Trixie Belden
The Californians(by Lori Wick)
The O'Malley series by Dee Henderson
The Waterfall series by Lisa T. Bergren
The O'Connor series by Julie Lessman
The Cheney Duvall series by Gilbert and Lynn Morris
And so many more! I'm a series fanatic!

Thanks once again Melanie for the award!
