Thanks to Book Bird Dog for giving this to me.

“This award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day.”

Now for the silly part:

“The rules to follow are:
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link. 2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.”

I think it is rather ridiculous to create an award, and then devalue it by making it a chain letter. I’m accepting it from Book Bird Dog because she stuck to just a few blogs that were really nice to read through, and I will do the same. I don’t even read 15 other blogs regularly, but here are a few that I really do enjoy.

Naked Without Books – Susan is an English instructor in S. Korea and has just participated in a 24-hour read-a-thon.

Lotus Reads – book reviews of a worldly nature.

While Sleepwalking – My dear friend has not blogged in a little while, but the past book reviews and European travels are well worth reading through.

Lessons from the Monk I Married – A great narrative of a woman who married a South Korean monk she befriended while working overseas.

The News Dissector
– He dissects the news. A great blog with lots of information, video clips, and links.

Rebecca Hosking Travel Examiner – a great friend of mine who has been to over forty countries talks about them one country at a time.
